Cooking With Heirlooms


Cooking with Heirlooms: Seasonal Recipes with Heritage-Variety Vegetables and Fruits is a celebration of the world’s “original” produce, the unique varieties that are not produced on commercial farms but instead are passed from generation to generation by hobby farmers and gardening and farming families. Prized for their more intense flavours and unusual colours, heirloom fruits and vegetables have become increasingly popular at farm stands, farmers’ markets, and even grocery stores as more consumers seek to “eat local” and avoid pesticides and other chemicals.
