"Eat local. That's no longer controversial, just an accepted mandate for food that is fresh, healthful, and, of course, delicious. But cooking and eating with the seasons can come with its own set of challenges, such as how to make the most of fleeting fava beans or what to do with a CSA box full of kale. Whether you're a farmers' market first-timer or an urban homesteader, Sur La Table's Eating Local is a beautiful handbook on how to adopt local ingredients in your own kitchen. The recipes are accessible, endlessly adaptable, and always mouthwatering."---Dan Barber, executive chef and co-owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns
"What a luscious, inspiring book---good food, good friends, and good farming are all included in Eating Local, which is just how it should and can be. I'd love to see such a book for every region of our country."---Deborah Madison, author of Local Flavors: Cooking and Eating from America's Farmers' Markets
"This cookbook is a delightful and beautifully illustrated exploration of the flavors, people, and places that the CSA movement is helping reintroduce into our culinary lives. For any food and farm lover, Eating Local is a resource book full of homey, classic, comforting recipes with contemporary twists, and a rare glimpse into the lives, passions, struggles, and dreams of America's modern-day small farmers."---Guillermo Payet, founder and president of LocalHarvest.org
