Winter Harvest Cookbook: How to Select and Prepare Fresh Seasonal Produce All Winter Long
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
Anyone can include more local food in their diet at the peak of summer, but what do you do when the tomatoes are done and the first greens of spring are months away? The Winter Harvest Cookbook takes a seasonal approach to eating, even during the coldest months of the year. This fully updated and revised twentieth anniversary edition includes more than two hundred simple, mouth-watering recipes showcasing fresh produce from the winter garden or local market, rounded out by introductions to unfamiliar ingredients, shopping tips, menu suggestions, and resource lists. The author also invites us into her corner of the Pacific Northwest, with vignettes drawn from the region's farming, gardening, and cooking.
Tantalize your tastebuds with an incredible array of soups, salads, sides, sauces, entrées, and desserts such as:
- Roasted brussels sprouts with sweet potatoes and garlic
- Penne with arugula, kale, and goat cheese
- Salad of roasted golden beets with feta and hazelnut oil
- Pot roast with hazelnut barley
With a greatly expanded array of vegetarian and vegan dishes, Winter Harvest Cookbook is a must-have for anyone who wants to enjoy fresh, local, and delicious food—any time of the year!

For the planet than local honey, or even than refined sugar made from Washington-grown beets? I just don’t know. I do know, however, that flying fresh corn in from Florida in March, as my neighborhood grocer did last year, is just plain crazy. Someone else would have to calculate the environmental cost per kernel for a dish where most of the shipped weight goes right into the trash. Or the hourly diminishing likelihood that it would actually taste anything like real corn. But for certain, half.
Since then I’ve become a devotee, expanding my experiments into roasting, soups, pies, tempura, and even biscuits. Last time I included them despite their non-local provenance, because they are such wonderful keepers and a great foil to strong-flavored winter roots and greens. Now Maritime Northwest locavores can take a shot at growing their own. Territorial Seeds offers slips, and a number of local gardeners have had success. That being said, the consensus is that local crops aren’t as sweet as.
