Complete Seasons Cookbooks  
Celebrate every season of the year by cooking delicious, easy-to-make recipes inspired by nature's bounty: springtime specialties from Fresh Pea Soup with Lemon Crème Fraîche to Roast Leg of Lamb with Mint Sauce, Wild Mushroom Ragout to White Chocolate Mousse with Strawberries; summer favorites such as Fettuccine with Golden Tomatoes, Swordfish Steaks with Mango and Avocado Salsa, Chili-Rubbed Corn on the Cob, and Apricot and Blackberry Cobbler; autumn fare from Acorn Squash Soup with Toasted Walnut Butter to Crispy Salmon with Spiced Lentils, Mixed-Grain Pilaf with Cranberries and Pine Nuts to Upside-Down Pear Gingerbread; and heartwarming winter creations like Crab Bisque, Crown Roast of Pork with Baked Apples, Lobster with Tangerine-Chive Butter, and Polenta Custard with Port-Stewed Winter Fruits.

These tantalizing dishes are among 200 recipes featuring fresh seasonal ingredients—originally created by award-winning chef author, cooking teacher and television celebrity Joanne Weir for the four-volume Williams-Sonoma Seasonal Celebration Series—gathered here for the first time in one complete and comprehensive volume. Each recipe is accompanied by a full-color photograph that shows exactly how the finished dish should look. Through-out the recipe pages, which are organized season by season, you will also discover a wealth of helpful hints and tips geared to preparing seasonal ingredients.

In the book's introductory pages, you'll find a comprehensive guide to peak-of-season produce complete with easy-to-follow suggestions for selecting the finest vegetables and fruits. Step-by-step demonstrations show you how to prepare some of each season's signature items. And full-color visual glossaries display a wide range of seasonal ingredients in glorious still-life photographs.
