Bursting with strategies, techniques and more than 300 original recipes, Farm-Fresh and Fast is a new cookbook for both seasoned and beginning CSA members and farmer's market shoppers. Produced by FairShare CSA Coalition in Madison, Wisc., Farm-Fresh blends culinary know-how with practical recipes and resourceful techniques to teach local food lovers of all skill levels how to make the most of fresh, seasonal produce. Farm-Fresh follows the coalition's first cookbook, From Asparagus to Zucchini, now in its third edition and a national bestseller.

Each chapter of Farm-Fresh is organized by plant anatomy (such as leafy greens, root vegetables, etc.) to highlight similarities in cooking and preparation among ingredients. Master recipes help home cooks adapt recipes to fit the ingredients they have on hand, and come with four seasonal variations so the recipes can be "changed up" as the season progresses and the harvest unfolds. Recipes are flexible and encourage innovation. Don't have spinach? Try chard. No basil for your pesto? Try garlic scapes or cilantro for a tasty variation that makes a great sandwich spread.

A tasty cocktail appendix and special "Theme menus" along with a pantry "must have" shopping list and additional resources round out this fantastic book to earn it a place in your every day cooking.
