Bestselling author and world-renowned chef Mario Batali pays homage to the American farmer - from Maine to Los Angeles - in stories, photos and recipes. AMERICA - FARM TO TABLE: Simple, Delicious Recipes Celebrating Local Farmers Mario Batali, who knows the importance of ingredients to any amazing dish, sees farmers as the rock stars of the food world. In this new book he celebrates American farmers: their high quality products and their culture defined by hard work, integrity, and pride. Batali asked his chef friends from Nashville, Tennessee, to San Francisco, to tell him who their favourite farmers were and those farmers graciously shared their personal stories along with their top-of-the-line produce and products. In Seattle, Chef Matt Dillon introduces readers to Farmer Pierre Monnant, who produces fava beans and lamb. Batali then features those ingredients in such mouth-watering recipes as: Lamb Shank Sloppy Joes and Fave Bean Guacamole. In Washington, DC, Chef Jose Andres from Jaleo introduces us to Farmer Jim Crawford, who grows corn, broccoli and strawberries. Batali's accompanying dishes include: Chilled Sweet Corn Soup and Grilled Salmon with Strawberry Salsa. Other stops along the way include: Tampa; Austin; Nashville; Las Vegas; Los Angeles; New York; San Francisco; Portland; Maine; Chicago; Cleveland; Suttons Bay, Michigan; and Vail Colorado. With over 100 superb recipes, this is the book that every home cook will want upon returning from the farmer's market or grocers.
