Focusing on ten ingredients, this book will enliven and inspire the way you harvest, shop, stock your pantry, and cook for everyday meals and special occasions.
Celebrating the bounty of the estate's organic kitchen garden, groves, and olive orchard, the Stone Edge Farm Kitchen Larder Cookbook makes the ultimate gift for cooks looking for new creative and efficient means to make the most of abundance and is a thoughtful, practical inspiration for building one's own repertoire of versatile staples and resourceful dishes combining delicious and dependable larder recipes with fresh, seasonal ingredients. Divided into chapters around ten classic ingredients--Lemons and Citrus, Herbs, Garlic, Potatoes, Tomatoes, Peppers, Figs, Quince, Olives and Olive Oil, and Grapes--seventy-five delectable recipes show readers how to prepare pantry staples, such as preserves, infused oils, and conservas, and then how to use those same products and ingredients in fully composed seasonal cocktails, dishes, and desserts for family meals and entertaining. Recipes include: Warm Olives with Preserved Lemon, Stone Fruit Salad with Onions, Wild Pecans, and Black Garlic Dressing, Potato and Green Garlic Ravioli, Herb-Crusted Fillet of Beef with Red Wine Jus, and Honey Sage Whiskey Sour. Step-by-step photographs guide the reader through preservation techniques and recipes and inspire with views of finished and composed dishes and scenery from wine country.
