From the Cook’s Garden
Harper Collins Cookbooks | 2003
For two decades our Vermont farm hosted an open house for gardeners to visit our 10-acre farm, to savor our organic vegetables, meet our two children, and a bevy of farm animals. Many of the recipes I wrote for our seed catalog featured in this book, which is now out of print, yet we can sometimes find copies on used book sites, including Amazon.
Published in 2003, this was my first cookbook, with recipes and stories woven together about our family seed catalog, The Cook’s Garden. Illustrated with color woodcut illustrations by Vermont artist, Mary Azarian add extra charm.
