The Hawai’i Farmers Market Cookbook Volume 1
Fresh Island Products from A to Z
With the increased availability of fresh local produce, shoppers often wonder, “What is that hairy fruit and what do I do with it?” The Hawai’i Farmers Market Cookbook provides complete descriptions of products, explains what to look for when purchasing, and how to prepare market finds. Full-color photographs help identify products.
Market visitors may be surprised to discover the unprocessed form of foods previously only encountered chopped and cooked. Tips on shopping at farmers’ markets, a complete listing of the current markets and their hours, and product seasonality charts are also included. Covers over 75 locally grown products and includes over 100 recipes. As a project initiated at the growers’ level, the focus here is on the food. You’ll find recipes contributed by some local culinary luminaries, such as co-editor Joan Namkoong, Beverly Gannon and Linda Yamada, but it’s truly the meats, fruits and vegetables that are the stars.
