Cooking from the market! What are your favourite Seasonal, Farm Market, Produce Cookbooks?

Breadcrumbs | | Apr 10, 2011 05:07 PM

I'm so excited to see my chives peeking through the still chilly soil. It's a sure sign that growing season has started and my menus will be influenced by what's fresh and in-season at the market.

I love bringing something wonderful home from the local market and then looking through my cookbooks to see what I can do with it.

Over the last year, I've been adding more produce, seasonal and farm market cookbooks to my shelf. I created a bookmark in EYB to bring all those books together in one place and help me search and it turns out I now have 57 such books on my shelf!! (head hanging in shame, yes I should be attending Cookbooks Anonymous!) One "newish" addition to my shelf that I'm extremely excited about is Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen Garden Companion. I love the look, feel and content of this book and I just can't wait to make some of the amazing recipes I've flagged.

I'd love to hear about your new additions and Tried & True favourites. Here are some of mine:
