Recipe editor, From Asparagus to Zucchini: A Guide to Farm-Fresh Seasonal Produce, Third Edition Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture Coalition and Jones Books, 1996, 2003, 2004

An indispensable, nationally renowned resource for people who want to make the most of local and seasonal produce. The book features new and updated recipes along with valuable information on nutrition, storage and history of more than 50 vegetables and herbs. The book contains 300 new recipes including contributions from well-known chefs and many other supporters of the sustainable agriculture movement.

"Sparkles with a sense of community, that all-important 'extra' that comes along with beautiful food fresh from the farm. It answers the question of what to do with your armloads of greens, exotic herbs, and never before seen vegetables with recipes that are as concise and doable as they are appealing. The essays that precede the recipes shouldn't be missed—they will reaffirm—or awaken, as need be, your dedication to enjoying the unique flavors of your local foods while nourishing the life of the sustainable family farm." 
-Deborah Madison, author, Vegetarian Suppers from Deborah Madison's Kitchen
