P. Allen Smith's Seasonal Recipes from the Garden by P. Allen Smith
This book came out in 2010, and the subtitle is A Garden Home Cookbook.
I fell in love with Allen’s cookbook the minute I discovered that he makes his pie crust the same way my mom taught me to make my pie crust. That little connection won my trust.
As one of America’s best-known gardeners and garden designers, Allen celebrates every season with reliable recipes that showcase fruits, vegetables, and herbs at their garden-fresh best.
Allen’s debut cookbook features 120 recipes: 30 for each season. There’s nothing outlandish or off the charts difficult here. Allen’s appeal is that he focuses on the dishes that everyone loves to eat.
My favorites include Chilled Pea Soup with Bacon and Whipped Cream; Salad of Asparagus, Edamame, Arugula, and Cheese; Radish Top Pasta; Aunt Martha’s Corn Pudding; Rosemary-Garlic Smoked Pork Tenderloin; Parmesan Pecan Crisps; Roasted Red Pepper Soup; Slow-Cooker Lamb Stew; Savory Rosemary Butternut Squash; and Tiny Orange Muffins.
Another aspect of this cookbook that I love is that Allen shares delightful personal stories with every recipe.
This book is 256 pages of easy-going recipes that utilize the goodness from our gardens and will make you feel like you’re cooking with a trusted garden friend.
