Today we've got a special treat for readers: a free giveaway copy of The Farmer's Kitchen: The Ultimate Guide to Enjoying Your CSA and Farmers' Market Foods by Julia Shanks and Brett Grohsgal!
The Farmer's Kitchen was one of my favorite books of 2011, and it's simply an awesome resource. It's partly a cookbook, and partly a universal guide for choosing, storing and preparing fresh produce. If you have any questions about fresh regional produce--what grows when, how to test for ripeness, how to choose and store (and cook!) any fruit or vegetable--this book is a must-read.
And there's more good news about this unique book: over the past few days, the authors received an unexpected surprise: First Lady Michelle Obama cited The Farmer's Kitchen as a key resource in her latest book, American Grown.
Here are the laughably simple rules to enter today's giveaway: Just leave a comment below, and if you have a fresh produce-based recipe from your blog that you'd like to publicize in front of all the readers here at Casual Kitchen, share a link to it in your comment! Why not get the word out on what you've written--and make this giveaway into a resource for everyone?
1) Leave a comment below
2) Share an optional link to a produce-based recipe on your blog.
3) Sit back and enjoy while our readers cross-fertilize.
I'll make a random selection of the winner one week from today, on Thursday June 14th, at noon Eastern time.
Good luck! And let's start sharing recipes!
