With supermarkets selling virtually every kind of fruit and vegetable all the year round, many people no longer have any idea what is in season when. C.J. Jackson, principal of the Leith's School of Food and Wine, and food writer Be Kassapian plan to change that.
As you'd expect, Leith's Seasonal Bible is divided according to the seasons, and every recipe comes with a wine recommendation. There is also a comprehensive guide to seasonal fruits and vegetables, catering quantities, cooking techniques, French cookery terms, food presentation, food safety, storing produce and freezing. Each seasonal section includes menus for family meals, entertaining on a large scale and advice for special events like Christmas and Valentine's Day. There are 850 recipes--650 are completely new--and they range from the mundane (wilted lettuce) to the exotic, such as Baked Marrow with Aduki Bean and Wild Mushroom Stuffing.
You'll find a good recipe for every fruit and vegetable imaginable, you'll learn how to debeard a mussel and you'll discover that a hot oven in Australia is over 240°C, but less than 220°C in America. Leith's Seasonal Bible is the kind of book that should be in every kitchen--and remember, it's cheaper to buy in season and you're likely to get fresher produce.
