Cookbook: The Broad Fork by Hugh Acheson
The Skim: Need some inspiration for cooking with your CSA share? Want to know what the heck to do with kohlrabi? Chef Hugh Acheson will lure you in with his unpretentious, relatable style, and then help you turn out restaurant-quality recipes in your home kitchen.
My favorite cookbooks come at vegetables not from a health standpoint, but with the goal of highlighting their deliciousness. After all, I know this stuff is good for me. Happily, the recipes in Broad Fork are all about building flavor, cooking the vegetables just to the point of doneness, and combining ingredients I'd never think to put together. With Acheson's help, even something as basic as a head of lettuce can become silky, luxurious, and a total joy to eat.
