New cook­book


Au­thors Diane Im­rie and Richard Jar­musz have pub­lished a cook­book, Cook­ing Close to Home - A Year of Sea­sonal Recipes. In this time of in­tense in­ter­est around lo­cal and sus­tain­able food, this cook­book is a must-have book­shelf ad­di­tion for any­one who is se­ri­ous about shift­ing their cook­ing habits to us­ing foods that are found sea­son­ally, in the north­east. The need to change to a health­ier, more en­vi­ron­men­tally-friendly style of cook­ing is be­com­ing more ob­vi­ous, and this cook­book will be a guide to do so.

Cook­ing Close to Home - A Year of Sea­sonal Recipes is a col­lec­tion of over 150 orig­i­nal recipes as well as sev­eral recipes passed down from gen­er­a­tions past. The recipes are organized by course and by sea­son, and guide the reader through the har­vest sea­sons and help those who en­joy cook­ing learn more about pre­par­ing and buy­ing lo­cal foods. The book in­cludes ap­pe­tiz­ing food pho­to­graphs and pho­tos of farms, or­chards, and farm­ers mar­kets through­out the north­east. Through­out the book there are use­ful “ Har­vest Hints” that ex­plain in­gre­di­ents, how and where to pur­chase them and how best to store the har­vest for the win­ter.

Some of the pho­tos in this book have been taken by lo­cal pho­tog­ra­pher Pierre Levac and edit­ing of the recipes has been done by an­other lo­cal res­i­dent Sharyn Duf­fey. There will be a book sign­ing and food sam­pling op­por­tu­nity Nov. 6, from 5 to 7 p. m. at Seren­ity Stu­dio 150 Fourth St. W.
