Which Farmer's Market Cookbook?

Regina | | Nov 20, 2008 10:29 AM

I am not a sophisticated or very skilled cook, but I do like to cook, usually pretty easy recipes (not a lot of time, I have a full time job and a 3 month baby).

I am trying to usher a healthier era into my family with the birth of my baby. I love farmer's markets and live in LA with an embarrassing bounty. However I am not sure how to cook most the great produce they have, and always seem to fall back on same steamed broccoli and lemon greenbeans.

I have been looking for a good, simple, basic farmer's market cookbook, and wanted to get some recommendations. Some seem wonderful exploration of a particular city which is great, but not what I am looking for. Still others presuppose lots of time, possession of unusual ingredients (saffron, etc) and skill level sadly above my own.

So I need something that is primarily a recipe book utilizing basic, easy recipes for fresh farmers market goodies. If it deals with CA centric seasons and produce, all the better. Thanks!
