“A celebration of [fruit] and vegetable treasures . . . packed with clear, concise recipes, written in a no–nonsense style” (Farmers Weekly).
 
No one knows fresh vegetables like Nina Planck. She grew up in Virginia, picking tomatoes, corn, beans, melons, and more on the family farm, and selling it all at nascent farmers’ markets. From the age of nine, she’s answered every question urban—and country—eaters have about produce. In 1999, Nina found herself living in London and, homesick for local food, she started London’s first farmers’ market.
 
In The Farmers’ Market Cookbook, Nina explains what the farmer knows about every vegetable from asparagus to zucchini—and what the cook needs to know. In more than thirty chapters, each dedicated to cooking with the freshest fruits and vegetables, Nina offers simple and delicious recipes for beef, pork, chicken, and fish, as well as a passel of ideas for perfect side dishes, soups, and desserts—all with produce in the lead role. Try Roast Pork Chops with Apple & Horseradish Stuffing, Blueberry & Almond Crisp, and Risotto with Oyster Mushrooms. Nina also offers tips only farmers would know, kitchen strategies, options for a surplus, advice on what to buy at the market and when, what to look for in an eggplant or a blueberry, and how to keep it all fresh.
 
As informative as it is beautiful, The Farmers’ Market Cookbook is perfect for any cook who has stared helplessly at fresh produce, praying for inspiration.
 
Foreword by Nigel Slater, English food writer, journalist, and broadcaster.

About the author

Born in Buffalo in 1971, Nina Planck was raised on her family’s farm in Virginia and grew up eating simple, real food. At age nine, she sold produce at roadside stands until the first proper farmers’ market opened nearby in 1980, neatly turning a money-losing farm into a profitable one. In 1999, Nina opened the first farmers’ markets in London and today her company runs two-dozen popular year-round markets. Chef Loyd Grossman called her market in Marylebone one of the World’s Best. In New York City, Planck was director of the famous Greenmarkets. In Washington, DC, she founded and sold the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market. Planck is the author of Real Food: What to Eat and Why and Real Food for Mother and Baby. She lives in New York City and Stockton, New Jersey, with her husband Rob Kaufelt, a cheese monger, and their three children.

This lush, creative cookbook celebrates the flavor and versatility of vegetables by bringing them to the center of the table in dozens of delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes. Too many of us let vegetables play second fiddle in meals that center on protein or carbs. For chef Matt Wilkinson, vegetables come first. He builds his dishes around vegetables that are in season, when they taste the best, are most affordable, and most readily available.  With beautiful photography and vintage illustrations, the book is both timely and timeless. Praise for Matt Wilkinson and Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables: "Matt Wilkinson makes you look at vegetables differently! This book. . . will leave you eager to prepare one of his many delicious recipes." —Eric Ripert, chef of Le Bernardin "I love how my fellow Aussie Matt Wilkinson gives homegrown, seasonal vegetables the spotlight in his dishes. Whether you're eating in his beautiful market-driven Melbourne cafe or lazily reading through his cookbook Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables, you can taste the admiration he has for all Mother Nature has to offer." —Curtis Stone, chef and host of Top Chef Masters and Around the World in 80 Plates "Matt Wilkinson takes vegetables to a whole new level with his recipes that are simple, yet intricate at the same time. Vegetables have never been as tasty." —David Chang, chef/founder of Momofuku "This book is packed with inventive recipes, gardening advice, and snippets of fun vegetable lore, and it's one I'll revisit often." —Lukas Volger, author of Vegetarian Entrees that Won't Leave You Hungry "I woke up in Melbourne and was whisked away to a studio where there was a make-shift kitchen with a couple guys putting together a meal of the most wonderful vegetables I had ever seen. There was no restaurant, no name. And that is where I met Matt and that chance meal in a warehouse behind a back alley is where one of my most special food memories remain. And now you can all see what I saw that night and maybe cook your own chance meal by Mr. Wilkinson."  —Roy Choi, chef Kogi Taco, Food & Wine Best New Chef 2010 "This book hits home for me! The way it's organized makes it so easy for people to celebrate each vegetable during its season and even inspires us to grow them with instructions on how-to!" —Ana Sortun, Oleana & Sofra bakery, Best Chef: Northeast 2005 James Beard Foundation
When Nina Planck toured to promote her two earlier books, Real Food and Real Food for Mother and Baby, the question she heard most was, “When are you going to write a cookbook?” At long last, The Real Food Cookbook is here.

In a dietary landscape overfull with low-carb bread and dubious advice about triglycerides, Planck is revolutionary in her complete embrace of a more old-fashioned and diverse way of eating. Aptly described by the Washington Post as “a cross between Alice Waters and Martha Stewart,” Planck showcases traditional, real foods-produce, dairy, meat, fish, eggs-through tempting and straightforward recipes for the beginner or regular home cook.

The Real Food Cookbook takes 150 classic dishes, from starters, soups, and salads to the center of the plate, to sweets and the cheese course, and makes them anew, transforming them with Nina's signature approach: using fresh herbs, good butter, seasonal fruits and vegetables, grass-fed and pastured meats, and whole grains. With essays and tips throughout, sharing Nina's own real-food lifestyle, The Real Food Cookbook will provide inspiration for any omnivorous cook or eater. Find recipes for every occasion: a cheese plate with drinks, a family Seder, Easter egg salads, a summer barbeque.Learn how Nina stocks her pantry and where she buys real food.Whether you're preparing the meals or simply eating them, everyone will enjoy the stories, feast on one hundred gorgeous full-color photographs, and beg the family cook to make the meals Nina loves.

"How to Eat a Small Country shares a few key traits with Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love in particular an infectiously likeable narrator and mouthwatering descriptions of European food. But Finley’s memoir is less precious, more honest, and ultimately more rewarding." -- Boston Globe

A professionally trained cook turned stay-at-home mom, Amy Finley decided on a whim to send in an audition tape for season three of The Next Food Network Star, and the impossible happened: she won. So why did she walk away from it all? A triumphant and endearing tale of family, food, and France, Amy’s story is an inspiring read for women everywhere.

While Amy was hoping to bring American families together with her simple Gourmet Next Door recipes, she ended up separating from her French husband, Greg, who didn’t want to be married to a celebrity. Amy felt betrayed. She was living a dream—or was she? She was becoming famous, cooking for people out there in TV land, in thirty minutes, on a kitchen set . . . instead of cooking and eating with her own family at home.

In a desperate effort to work things out, Amy makes the controversial decision to leave her budding television career behind and move her family to France, where she and Greg lived after they first met and fell in love. How to Eat a Small Country is Amy’s personal story of her rewarding struggle to reunite through the simple, everyday act of cooking and eating together. Meals play a central role in Amy’s new life, from meeting the bunny destined to become their classic Burgundian dinner of lapin à la moutarde to dealing with the aftermath of a bouillabaisse binge. And as she, Greg, and their two young children wend their way through rural France, they gradually reweave the fabric of their family.

At times humorous and heart-wrenching, and always captivating and delicious, How to Eat a Small Country chronicles the food-filled journey that one couple takes to stay together.
