Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables


A book that proves with each of its 225 recipes that ripe, seasonal ingredients makes better cooks.



You’ll find other cookbooks that are structured around the seasons but this is the one that we return to, year after year. You’ll find autumn, winter and spring—and summer, “where the action is,” comes in three waves, much like the offerings in shops and farmers markets. McFadden hopes readers find these recipes, made using what he calls mostly quite ordinary ingredients and methods, “delicious, even revelatory…but never fussy.”
