What's Cooking in Flowerville?
Recipes from Garden, Balcony or Window Box
Young cooks will learn about the edible gifts that each season brings in this warm and inviting collection of recipes from the author of What's Cooking at 10 Garden Street. In lush double-page spreads featuring Sala's gorgeous watercolor illustrations, we visit the yards, balconies, and rooftops where the citizens of Flowerville grow their vegetables. Each month features a different member of the town, and a delicious recipe inspired by a fruit or vegetable.
From spring's asparagus and peas and summer's cherries, cucumbers and peppers to autumn's pears and squash and winter's potatoes and citrus--twelve healthy ingredients are harvested in one of the townspeople's gardens and then used to make an easy, delicious dish. As the year comes to a close, the town gathers for a giant picnic. The recipes, which include savory and sweet pies, soups, sauces, pancakes and croquettes, embrace a wide array of cultures, and feature fresh flavors and easy-to-source ingredients. Kids will learn not only how to incorporate fruits and vegetables into meals, but also how they grow and when they ripen. The book also includes charmingly illustrated tips and tools for growing your own food. A celebration of gardening, cooking, and community, this unique and beautiful cookbook is certain to become a perennial favorite in family kitchens.
