It's been too long since I made a trip to my public library (and I live right next door!). Sadly, I haven't been cooking or baking as much as before, but I'm looking to turn the tide. Stopped in last night and picked up a few books for inspiration. My goal is to cook at LEAST one recipe from every cookbook I check out, since often times, I just look through, drool, get a few ideas, and return it when it's due.
So I flipped through Local Flavors (see link) by the vegetarian goddess, Deborah Madison, last night. I drooled at the recipes and pretty photos of vibrant, farm fresh produce. Now it's time to cook something. Usually something will resonate w/ me such that I know I must make it, but so far, everything sounds good!
So I'm turning to you hounds to help focus me. Any favorite recipes from this book that are a must try? Of course, I'm most interested in recipes that feature fruits and veggies that are available at farmer's markets in NorCal right now.
And any general thoughts on the cookbook as a whole are appreciated. I wasn't crazy about her other book, Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone, so gave it away. This one gets me more excited, so I'm thinking of eventually buying it since I need more veggie-centric books. Thanks for your input!
