Local Dirt Cookbook




Style : 9780062970275

For Andrea Bemis, eating locally is a way of life. She and her husband own and operate an organic vegetable farm outside of Portland, and the produce they grow - from kale and kohlrabi to beets and butternut squash - is at the heart of the meals they serve and eat at their dinner table. They supplement their harvest with food produced by their neighbors, including the ranchers who supply their meat, and the orchardists who provide their fruit. In Local Dirt, Bemis shares her journey through stories, photographs, and more than 80 recipes, re-creating a not-so-distant world when the ingredients cooked and eaten were produced within local communities. Organized by season, the delicious and creative dishes in this truly sustainable cookbook includes Fennel Gratin, Kohlrabi Yogurt Salad with Smoked Salmon, Winter Squash Toast with Honey & Hazelnuts, and Zucchini Swiss Chard & Chickpea Stew. Best of all, the recipes can be adapted to utilize any local fare. 320 pages.
