I try to cook with local, seasonal produce as much as possible. Right now in the Northeast, our farmers markets are brimming with produce from early garden harvests and there is more to come. To help me cook with what is locally available, I turn to my collection of favorite seasonal cookbooks. These are books that specialize in appropriate dishes for certain times of year based on what is in season. I love all the different suggestions and ideas for preparing fresh vegetables, fruits, and certain meats and fish. They are all about making foods that are appropriate for the time of year: heavier foods in the winter, lighter dishes for summer. These books also all happen to be perfect for families because the recipes don’t require complicated cooking techniques and the dishes easily serve a family of four or more. Here are my favorite seasonal cookbooks; what are your favorites? And, don’t forget, if you like reading here are 12 Food Memoirs Everyone Should Read and my 8 Best Family Cookbooks.
