I first looked over Melissa's Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce cookbook during my trip this summer. Just flipping through its pages at the time, I found a few recipes that I would have loved to make right then and there. What I find to be very refreshing about this book is its layout which is unlike any other cookbook I've seen: each chapter is dedicated to a certain fruit or vegetable and, in addition to the recipes and quick serving suggestions, there are also tips on buying and storing the produce, along with information about the different varieties that it comes in and about the time of the year in which it is available.
I was very happy to purchase the book a few weeks ago, and I can't wait to cook a few recipes from it once I get some time off. A plate of Risotto with Sugar Snap Peas and some Chocolate Cupcakes with Grapefruit Smooches sound especially alluring right about now!
