What a great cookbook! I knew from the cover of this book, that it was going to be a good one. I know, I know, "don't judge a book by it's cover." Glass jars of polenta and beet greens, these are a few of my favorite things. And I'm now planning to add open shelves in my kitchen.
Beyond the cover, I thought the author did a great job of keeping it personal with great suggestions, stories and few ingredient recipes. The recipes seem classic, but with a twist to keep the recipe, economical, local, and beautiful. I started out with the cracker recipe, and I HIGHLY recommend that one. I'm no baker, and these turned out so delicious, I want to share them with everyone I know. Next I tried the super easy Carrot-Coconut Milk Soup. So, simple, so delicious, and so easy!
