A regional market with national presence, the Santa Monica Farmers' Market has long inspired both renowned chefs and home cooks. One of the oldest and largest markets in the state (with 20,000 customers weekly), it stands at the forefront of a national trend toward cooking with local and seasonal ingredients. For more than twenty years, Amelia Saltsman has shopped its stands, talked with its farmers, and cooked its magnificent produce for family and friends. The result is The Santa Monica Farmers' Market Cookbook, a celebration of the market's excellence and its hardworking farmers. What's the difference between white and green zucchini? What are amaranth, sapote, and ramps? With Amelia as your guide, you'll learn the answers to these questions and more. In these pages, you'll find advice on how to select and store produce, stories about farmers and their crops, chef and farmer cooking tips, and more than 100 of Amelia's simple, tempting recipes.
