HASH(0x941e6dd4) out of 5 stars Refreshing... 19 July 2005
By Cynthia Seligmann - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I've only tried one recipe so far. However, I opened the book last night in the kitchen and was still reading it an hour later. The book is crammed with useful information on the life and times of veggies. The recipes are clear, concise and appealing.

Not only that, but this woman can write!

HASH(0x93f4b078) out of 5 stars Great vegetable collection 16 Oct. 2005
By Cooper 'n me - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Author of more than a dozen cookbooks, Chesman describes herself as "a cook who gardens" rather than "a gardener who cooks," but her latest title will interest anyone who likes vegetables, whether from the backyard, the farmers market, or the supermarket. She organizes her recipes by season, from spring's first asparagus through tomatoes, "the star of summer," to winter squash and pumpkins; each chapter opens with information on growing, cooking, nutrition, and other useful facts. She also includes "Master Formulas," recipes that can be varied according to the vegetables in season.

HASH(0x93d54a2c) out of 5 stars The Garden-Fresh Vegetable Cookbook 14 May 2007
By Nancy N. Rafada - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent cookbook that goes month-by-month for what's ready in the garden. Also gives a short guide at the beginning of each chapter on how to grow a particular vegetable along with a little history and helpful tips. A lovely book to read as well as to cook from.

HASH(0x93df03e4) out of 5 stars A seasonal arrangement assures an easy, solid reference. 7 Jan. 2007
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Any who have a summer garden know the routine: it's feast and then sudden famine when everything ripens at once, and too often vegetable cookbooks hold the same types of dishes. If you have garden bounty and are seeking something fresh and new - something which embraces ethnic flavors and different seasoning combinations - then THE GARDEN-FRESH VEGETABLE COOKBOOK is for you. No, it doesn't hold the spicy color photos of less comprehensive guides: it focuses on the recipes which are easy enough not to need color embellishment. Try Chicken and Broccoli in Mornay Sauce, 'Zapple Pie' made with summer squash, or Eggplant Pizza. Dishes are accompanied by sidebars of information and gardening tips, from discussions different cultivars and historical insights to the evolution of plant names. A seasonal arrangement assures an easy, solid reference.

HASH(0x93f41a08) out of 5 stars paperback version on amazon 25 Sept. 2010
By Barbara L - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I have ordered "Serving up the Harvest" by Andrea Chessman and discovered that it was originally published in hardback as "The Garden-Fresh Vegetable Cookbook". This hardback is only available now through outside sellers, and is not inexpensive. "Serving up the Harvest" turns out to be a steal!
