Simply In Season
(World Community Cookbook)by Mary Beth Lind, Cathleen Hockman-WertReview
This comfortable little book will snuggle in nicely on the shelf with the many submitted recipe, church cookbooks that we have accumulated. Its spiral bound, lay flat format and abundance of very manageable recipes adds to its friendliness. However, there are also distinctions to be drawn, as this is not a butter lovers bible or a meat lovers manifesto, but really a lesson in living- living a lifestyle that is unfamiliar to so many - a rational and systematic blueprint for well being. You grow the food, you harvest the food when ready, you process and prepare the food while it is still in its prime. I know about this. My partner is a passionate gardener, and I in turn find delight, with a dash of responsibility throw in, to plate meals that are worthy of her efforts. If you have never been there, Simply in Season
will allow you to drift along with the current of a different stream.
