Anyone who has shopped in a farmer's market knows the abundant glories of seasonal produce, from the deep, fruity notes of a sun-ripened tomato to the crisp, green snap of a just-harvested bean; from the intoxicating perfection of a ripe strawberry to the juicy sweetness of a hand-picked peach.

Like a trip to the market, The Produce Bible brings together the best of nature's bounty, offering delicious recipes and essential ingredient information for more than 100 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nuts.

Celebrating the explosion of interest in locally grown and hand-picked produce, this comprehensive volume features 200 recipes that bring out the special qualities of each ingredient, from tender spring peas to earthy autumnal tubers. In addition, the book is filled with practical advice on how to choose, store, and prepare fresh produce, as well as basic cooking techniques, nutritional information, and suggestions for companion foods.

If you want to know the best type of potato for roasting or mashing; the perfect uses for a meyer lemon; or the ideal way to eat an artichoke, then look no further. Bursting with luscious color photographs, The Produce Bible is an invaluable resource for gardeners, cooks, and food lovers alike.
