SOUTH PORTLAND, Maine—Farmers and gardeners have valued The Old Farmer’s Almanac for its advice on growing, preserving, and preparing food since its founding in 1792. In the new book, Field to Fork: A Collection of Classic Recipes (ISBN: 978‐1‐4162‐4664‐0; $19.95), the Almanac’s editors have compiled over 120 of their best recipes that use fresh produce at its peak of flavor to create tried‐and‐true Almanac favorites.
“Freshness continues to be important to us all, and in these pages, you’ll find some of our best recipes for bringing great taste and good health to the home table,” says Almanac Food Editor, Sarah Perreault. “These recipes vary by the seasonal nature of the garden produce at hand. Spring Recipes feature delightful spring edibles that are popping up and encouraging our efforts, such as crunchy radishes, tender lettuce leaves, bright green peas, and snappy asparagus. Summer Recipes take advantage of the abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables ready for harvest during these months, while Fall Recipes feature late‐summer vegetables and cool‐weather crops like pumpkins and apples. Winter Recipes run the gamut from simple comfort food to elaborate dishes for entertaining and rely on all that you have preserved from the growing season.”
Features of the book include:
- Delicious recipes—from breakfasts to desserts and all the meals in between—using
sustainable, seasonal produce
- Helpful hints and proven tips culled from more than 225 years of Old Farmer’s Almanac
- Fascinating facts and folklore from The Old Farmer’s Almanac archives
- More than 75 full‐color photographs and line illustrations
