Books That Highlight Cooking with Fresh Ingredients

 
 

With books like Michael Pollan's hugely popular and influential Food Rules coming to the fore, America has finally begun to realize that the quality of the food we eat—and knowing where it comes from—are essential to our health and well-being.

We know that our customers have long been concerned with preparing and eating fresh, nutritious food, and we are pleased to be able to offer the windfall of this "new" discovery, with outstanding books about making everything from our daily bread to producing delightful cheeses and beers at home.

Here are cookbooks that make the most of the increased availability of fresh local produce; books describing the history of culturally significant foods (also with recipes); books on giving your body and brain the nutrition that they need (with still more recipes); and even picture books that celebrate the elegant beauty of good food.
