The California Farm to Table Cookbook - If you like strawberries, almonds, or tomatoes, you can thank California—the Golden State produces nearly half of United States–grown fruits, nuts, and vegetables. Featuring innovative newcomers on the farm-to-table scene alongside family farms that have operated for generations, The California Farm Table Cookbook celebrates all the culinary contributions the state has to offer. Local author and photographer Lori Rice invites you to be a part of the independent farm community through dishes and stories that take you from salty waters and sandy beaches to rolling fields and rustic mountains. Each chapter is devoted to one of the state’s bountiful ingredients and the growers who cultivate them, with enticing recipes that highlight the region’s agricultural diversity. Complete with charming farm profiles, menus for seasonal get-togethers, and stunning, full-color photography, The California Farm Table Cookbook brings the sunny spirit and farm-fresh flavors of the Golden State right to your kitchen.
