My good friend is a member of a CSA in Seattle and we love comparing notes on our bounties.  I am amazed to hear that she gets stuff like bags of chanterelle mushrooms. Last year when her farm had suffered lots of flooding, she was amazed that I was actually getting a pickup every week.  This past Christmas she gave me Deborah Madison’s cookbook Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone.  It’s quite a tome – you could do serious bicep curls with it.  This book is awesome.  I am an omnivore, but this book is so big and chock full of recipes, that I sometimes think it might be possible for me to live without meat.  Or at least try.  The pictures and illustrations are beautiful.  I am still making my way through the recipes, but so far they seem simple and straightforward.  And there is a lot of info about cooking methods, kitchen staples and seasonings.  This year I’m going to give the kohlrabi with horseradish recipe a try.

Is there a cookbook you wanna eat?  Tell us about it.
