As Heard on The Daily Gardener Podcast:
Kitchen Garden Cookbook by Jeanne Kelley
This book came out in 2013, and the subtitle is Celebrating the homegrown & homemade.
Jeanne is also the author of the acclaimed Blue Eggs and Yellow Tomatoes: Recipes from a Modern Kitchen Garden and Williams-Sonoma Kitchen Library Holiday Baking.
In this cookbook, Jeanne shares the recipes she developed to feature the fruits, vegetables, herbs, eggs, and even honey harvested from your own garden.
Jeanne’s simple recipes are inspiring and delicious. Whether you have a large garden, a small kitchen garden, or simply enjoy shopping for fresh ingredients from the farmer’s market, Jeanne’s cookbook will give you plenty of new ideas for every season in the garden.
Jeanne’s cookbook is cleverly divided into four main sections, spring, summer, fall & winter, and the coop & the hive.
What I love about Jeanne’s cookbook is her focus on the “greatest hits” of a traditional kitchen garden - like tomatoes, zucchini, and berries. Jeanne also shares her tips for planting a well-thought-out kitchen garden.
Jeanne offers more than 100 recipes featuring the fresh and natural flavors of whatever is in season. Some of my favorites include her shaved zucchini salad with almonds, ricotta & pea crostini, grilled ham and cheese with herb pesto, cherry tomato and thyme frittata, lettuce, butter & Radish Salad, and her summer herb drizzle with sliced tomatoes and mozzarella.
This book is 224 pages of beautiful photography, quaint illustrations of Jeanne’s garden, and a fabulous go-to cookbook for the gardener-cook.
