High Summer is one of my most favorite times of year, largely because the soil gives birth to the season’s hard work and planting. From beans, tomatoes, and corn to blueberries, peaches, and apricots, there’s countless options for eating locally. Enter “Ripe”, Nigel Slater’s ode to produce, gardening, and cooking. With a focus on fruit, the cookbook offers over 300 recipes, and will have you quickly wanting to grow your own. So, stop by the shop, and check out our selection of seasonally inspired cookbooks and guides.
Another favorite, The Heirloom Tomato Cookbook, shown above, devoted entirely to the top 25 heirloom varieties. The cookbook not only includes recipes, but also detailed cultivation information, a sourcelist of seeds and plants, and advice on choosing and storing tomatoes!
