From the restaurants of today's most creative chefs to the kitchens of savvy home cooks, blueberries have become a favorite ingredient not just for breakfast and dessert but for dishes at every meal. And the doctor approves.

The book begins by highlighting the health benefits of blueberries, and then presents 80 fresh, innovative recipes that will appeal to every palate. Featured are such winning creations as Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry-Peach Compote; Fennel, Arugula, Orange, and Blueberry Salad; and Blueberry Martinis, gathered from home cooks and renowned chefs, including Debra Ponzek and Alain Ducasse, as well as venerable restaurants such as Moody's Diner in Maine.
