The beloved Loaves & Fishes cookshop on Long Island's East End pays tribute to local farms and seasonal produce in what will be an eventual 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 using strawberries, cherries, beets, carrots, peas, and greens and herbs. The recipes themselves offer a range between classic favorites such as a fresh pea soup and cherry claufoutis and subtle, intelligent innovations: Thai coconut-carrot soup; roasted strawberries on shortcake.
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 summer kitchens and year -round.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
