The beloved Loaves & Fishes cookshop on Long Island’s East End pays tribute to local farms and seasonal produce in 12-volume set of smart, stylish, handsomely photographed clothbound books.
Loaves & Fishes proprietor Sybille van Kempen—who opened the original store alongside her mother, the legendary Anna Pump—worked with local chef Licia Kassim Householder to showcase wonderful things to prepare that pair well with brews from the nearby Long Ireland Beer Co.
Who could go wrong with bangers and beer-braised saerkraut? A hearty pea and ham soup can stand up to a good stout. And beef hand pies make perfect bar food, even if you're enjoying them at home. Handsomely packaged, almost like little gift books (just under 8 inches square and 72 pages long), the Loaves & Fishes Farm Series volumes are strongly evocative of both time and place and likely to become well used in seasonal kitchens and year-round.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
