Cooking with Shelburne Farms: Food and Stories from Vermont (Shelburne Farms Books) Review
The Shelburne Farms cookbook is my new favorite cookbook. Besides its different way of being organized (by local products, like maple, cream, apples) it has many recipes that have a new twist to them. I have made many things from the cookbook, and almost all are stellar. The cider vinaigrette has become a staple, and the spiced nuts get raves every time they get served. The recipes are well written, with clear instructions. The stories and pictures of the local producers are interesting and presented in a way that makes you feel like you a meeting a neighbor. All in all, a great cookbook and a great gift. Oh, and their restaurant is pretty spectacular, too.
