A master cook as well as a master gardener, Barbara Damrosch shares 120 delicious farmhouse dishes in her new book The Four Season Farm Gardener's Cookbook. Even those without gardens will enjoy these recipes with produce from the local markets. She shows you that with just a few basic techniques for cooking vegetables that maximize their taste, freshness and nutritional value, you can adapt your cooking them to what's fresh and in season. Her cooking style is "prosperous peasant." Her food tastes good and her dishes are made from scratch. Almost nothing starts with a box or a can. It's healthy food"real food,"but never in a self-depriving way. And because she's busy, most of her recipes are quite simple and quick to prepare.
Today Barbara showed Helen how to make Spinach Quiche with Buckwheat Crust. Barbara also showed off her Custard-Stuffed Baked Tomatoes and Hazelnut Torte with Summer Berries. Head to our recipes page for all the details.
