As someone who wrote a weekly column about the joys of fresh produce for 20 years, it was hard not to fall in love with this latest offering from Better Homes & Gardens. Many of the 300 recipes presented here offer some surprising flavor combinations and pairings, such as blueberry and corn in a salad, a trio of radishes, bacon and beans as an appetizer, and a sandwich filling created using muenster cheese, cabbage and thinly sliced apples. Better Homes & Gardens Fresh not only emphasizes making recently harvested crops the centerpiece of your menu planning, it also reminds us that to every thing, there is a season and all fruits and vegetables are at their peak of taste and flavor when enjoyed when their harvest is ripe, rather than year-round for our convenience. This cookbook is well worth getting for the user-friendly last section alone, which is a comprehensive produce guide. BHG’s efforts to put the kitchen spotlight on everything fresh from the garden and field — well done!
