In Farm to Fork, Emeril offers recipes that will inspire cooks to utilize organic and locally-grown produce. He gets his hands dirty and brings the farm to you—he'll show you not only how to whip up a delicious meal, but also how to take advantage of local seasonal ingredients, which will keep you eating fresh and healthy foods throughout the year. Emeril covers all of the basics: leafy greens, herb, milk, eggs, cheese, meats, fish, grains, homemade preserves and fresh fruit for every season. Chapters on the three sisters: corn, beans, and squash as well as roots, shoots, tubers and bulbs offer delish recipes for all the fresh ingredients you'll find.

Recipes range from Honey Brined Pork Chops with Nectarine Chutney, Sweet Corn Maque Choux, Five Grain Salad, to Spinach Sautéed with Garlic, Figs, and Honey and Corn, Tomato, and Lobster Salad and Watermelon Rind Crisp Sweet Pickles.

Healthy recipes with little to no cooking, ideal for hot summer weather, include Baby Limas, Green and Yellow Beans, and Teardrop Tomatoes with Mint Vinaigrette and Tomato Tartare and Micro Greens with Shallot Vinaigrette to Turnip and Radish Slaw with Lump Crabmeat and Chive Oil and Fresh Mint Tea. Refreshing drinks also include Apple Tarragon Granita and Fresh Watermelon Limeade. To top it off, fresh from the orchard, is Nectarine and Mascarpone Tart in a Sugar Cookie Crust and Apricot Clafouti.

Whether you're an environmentally conscious eater or simply someone who loves great food, Farm to Fork bridges the gap from bud-sprout to supermarket, giving you a deeper understanding of our modem day food chain while teaching you how to make the most of the fresh ingredients found at your local farmers market.
