Farm Fresh Southern Cooking is a great cookbook with a lot of wonderful recipes! I cannot wait to try them. The author encourages people to cook fresh foods and purchase these items from their local farmers market. She mentions that finding a local market can be a challenge for some people so she explains where to go to find this information. She also encourages people, when traveling, to shop at local farmers markets. She makes a great, often overlooked point, that different states may have different growing conditions. Therefore, when traveling, people may often find that food tastes better than what they are used to at home or they may find some unique food items. I have found this to be true in my travels.
Another great part of this book is that it spotlights farms and farmers markets. The author did a great job sprinkling this information through-out the book. Included with the name of the market is the address, phone number, e-mail and website (if applicable), and consumer experience. The consumer experience is helpful as it notes if it is a farmers market or if items can be purchased on-line. The author also includes some information about the market. I think this information would also be great for anyone who is traveling and looking to check out some local markets.
I would definitely recommend this book! Enjoy!
