And if you're still hungry, we've included below some of our favorite cookbooks as well:
by Deborah Madison, 1997, Broadway Books.
This cookbook offers a comprehensive variety of excellent vegetarian
dishes. Ingredients and preparation styles tend to be simple and
effective. The author has an excellent writing style. Many recipes
can be followed using exclusively food available in the Berkshires.
by the Madison Area Community Supported Agriculture Coalition (MACSAC),
Another fantastic cookbook, this one particularly reflecting the
needs of our CSA members and farmers market customers. Madison,
Wisconsin has a climate very similar to Berkshire County. Both are
in Hardiness Zone 5, which means locally available produce tends
to be similar. The book is organized alphabetically by type of produce,
and the recipes are terrific and fairly easy to prepare. Copies
of this cookbook will be for sale at Indian Line Farm.
by Laurel Robertson, Carol Flinders,
and Brian Ruppenthal, 1986, Ten Speed Press.
This cookbook emphasizes good health through good nutrition. And
theres lots of good scientific information in this cookbook
about both important subjects. This vegetarian cookbook emphasizes
meals low in fat, prepared with simple ingredients.
by Mollie Katzen, 1992, Ten Speed Press.
Another excellent reference for the vegetarian cook. Recipes are
healthful and tasty. Many foreign dishes are included, and required
food sources are not limited to whats locally available.
by Irma S. Rombauer and Marion Rombauer Becker,
1964, The Bobbs-Merrill Company, Inc.
No kitchen would be complete without a copy of this fantastic cookbook.
Perhaps the best known of all cookbooks, it is packed with great
information and techniques, everything from butchering a cow to
preparing a hollandaise sauce. If you dont have a copy, there
are many used older editions (such as above) that can be picked
up for just a dollar or two, and would be well worth it. Also available
is The New Joy of Cooking, 1997, Scribner.
