Kelley takes eating locally a step further with a guide to starting a backyard garden, including tips on keeping chickens.</p> <p><strong>Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients</strong><br /> By Jesse Ziff Cool (Chronicle Books, 2008 • $24.95)<br /> Author Jesse Ziff Cool is serious about seasonality, dividing her recipes into not four but eight seasons. Try Lamb Chops with Strawberry-Rhubarb Sauce for the first of spring and Cream Cheese-Glazed Sponge Cake in midsummer. Originally published in 2000, this book has been reissued and it’s worth checking out.</p> </div> </div> </div> http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/green_sustainable/read_local#comments Roz Kooker Food News & Origins - Green & Sustainable Wed, 12 Aug 2009 19:48:22 +0000 Sarah Hoff 9433 at http://www.eatingwell.com
