Fabulous bounty from Connecticut farms is now available at farm stands, farmers’ markets, green markets, and farm-to-door retailers. It’s the perfect time to celebrate with a new cookbook and we’re giving one away in our Facebook sweepstakes!
In Connecticut Farmer & Feast, author Emily Brooks beautifully profiles the work of close to 50 Connecticut farmers, sharing stories of multi-generational farm families alongside those of first-time farmers. Eggs, milk, cheeses, honey, fruit, produce, meats and poultry from these farms become the ingredients for more than 85 seasonal recipes. Readers will be inspired to shop at farm stands and farmers’ markets in order to savor the fleeting flavors of the summer harvest. Connecticut Farmer & Feast showcases the bounty of all four seasons, perhaps giving us that extra push we need to visit winter farmers’ markets and nourish ourselves with locally grown squash, hardy winter greens, and root vegetables during late fall and winter.
