From the Cook’s Garden
For two decades our Vermont farm hosted an open house for gardeners to visit our 10-acre farm, savor our organic vegetables, and meet our two children, and a bevy of farm animals. Many of the recipes I wrote for our seed catalog are featured in this book, which is now out of print, yet we can sometimes find copies on used book sites, including Amazon. Illustrated with color woodcut illustrations by Vermont artist, Mary Azarian add extra charm. No longer available.
