Summer cooking should combine those elements we love most about the season: fresh fruits and vegetables, bright colors, arresting aromas, and the great outdoors. So NPR selected the 10 best cookbooks for jumping out of the frying pan and into the garden:
- Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients: Organic creations to complement eight distinct seasons.
- Raising the Salad Bar: Fresh takes on the simple salad with lively dressings to shake up your palette.
- Mediterranean Fresh: Exotic one-dish meals inspired by European and near Eastern flavors.
- Blue Eggs & Yellow Tomatoes: Recipes from a Modern Kitchen Garden: Bold colors and textures plucked from the urban garden.
