With 80,000 of the original sold, Chronicle Books now reissues this cookbook classic with a new cover to introduce it to a new generation of readers. The French country tradition of cooking from a potager, or kitchen garden, has for centuries produced meals that are seasonally fresh, simple, and sparkling with the essential flavors of their carefully grown and prepared ingredients. Here James Beard Award-winning author Georgeanne Brennan captures the full vitality of this age-old cuisine. Arranged by season, Potager features a collection of sixty imaginative recipes made from the very freshest fruits, vegetables, and herbs of nature's bounty. Illustrated with over 100 vivid color photographs of the gardens, the ingredients, and the finished dishes, Potager presents the simplicity and balance of French cuisine at its finest.
