Farm-Fresh highlights similarities among ingredients, helping CSA members adapt recipes to fit what they have on hand, and teaches local food lovers of all skill levels how to make the most out of fresh, seasonal produce.

Each chapter is organized by plant anatomy (such as leafy greens, root vegetables, etc.) to highlight similarities in cooking and preparation among ingredients.  — VIEW SAMPLE PAGES — Master recipes help home cooks adapt recipes to fit the ingredients they have on hand, and come with four seasonal variations so the recipes can be “changed up” as the season progresses and the harvest changes.

Recipes are flexible and encourage innovation. Don’t have spinach?  Try chard.  No basil for your pesto?  Try garlic scapes or cilantro for a tasty variation that makes a great sandwich spread.

Cooks will find storage and preparation information, as well as photos and descriptions of 78 fruits and vegetables that could be found at farmer’s markets and in CSA boxes from Wisconsin to Florida.  Farm-Fresh and Fast is the perfect companion to FairShare’s bestselling and beloved cookbook From Asparagus to Zucchini.

These original recipes were developed, tested and shared by CSA members, farmers, and chefs such as Sam Kanson-Benanav of the Underground Food Collective in Madison.  With Farm-Fresh and Fast, you’ll never be without a delicious recipe to make the most of the season’s bounty!
