I doubt that the author tried these recipes before adding them to the book. I found many odd things that just didn't make sense. For example, the Blackberry Rhubarb Cobbler (serves 4) used 1 pound of butter - 8 Tablespoons per serving?!. To eat this at one sitting, I think would make most people sick to their stomach. The recipe also included "3 plain muffins" -- with no recipe for muffins or indication of size... Another example, was the Roasted Beet Salad (serving 4), though the dressing that went with it was a recipe for 1.5 quarts (which could serve 24-48) -- I'm not sure what I was supposed to do with the remaining 5-5.5 cups. You would think it would behave easy enough for the author to convert the dressing recipe to for, so why didn't he do it? That would probably be because a recipe for 4 (at 1/4 cup per person) would require a 1/6 of a clove and 1/6 of a star anise -- so not really doable. Also instructions for recipes tend to be vague -- e.g. blanch the bok choy without saying how long it should stay in the water, so unless you've blanched bok choy before it's difficult to get it right the first time.

Lots of variety, which is great. It is always nice to find local, accessibly sourced inspirations in cookbooks. This one is definitely on the right track for this reader. I frequent as many farmers markets as possible & this gives me even more ideas!

The only drawback is how many of the restaurants he profiled changed hands or closed their doors--but that is the nature of the restaurant business!

I'd love to try every recipe in here!
