AMERICA—FARM TO TABLE: Simple, Delicious Recipes Celebrating Local Farmers
Mario Batali, knowing the importance of ingredients to any amazing dish, sees farmers as the rock stars of the food world. In this new book he celebrates American farmers: their high quality products and their culture defined by hard work, integrity, and pride. Batali asked his chef friends from Nashville to San Francisco to tell him who their favorite farmers are, and those farmers graciously shared their personal stories and top-of-the-line products with him and Webster.
In Seattle, Chef Matt Dillon introduces readers to farmer Pierre Monnat, who produces fava beans and lamb. Batali then features those ingredients in such mouth-watering recipes as Fava Bean Guacamole and Lamb Shank Sloppy Joes. In Washington, D.C., Chef José Andrés from Jaleo introduces us to farmer Jim Crawford, who grows corn, leeks, and strawberries. Batali’s accompanying dishes include Chilled Sweet Corn Soup and Grilled Salmon with Strawberry Salsa. Other stops include: Tampa; Austin; Nashville; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Rockland, Maine; Chicago; Cleveland; Suttons Bay, Michigan; and Vail, Colorado. With over 100 superb recipes, this is the essential book that you will want close at hand after a trip to the farmers’ market or grocery store.
