Well-known personality and respected garden authority P. Allen Smith believes that good food and good eating are natural extensions of the garden—and that fresh fruits and vegetables are best when in season. In P. Allen Smith's Seasonal Recipes from the Garden, his cookbook debut, Allen showcases the bounty of each season with recipes arranged by when ingredients are at their garden-fresh best. He features 120 Southern recipes peppered with wit, personal anecdotes, gardening tips and cooking tricks. He also includes a short how-to guide in the back of the book that includes information about the food he grows in his garden and some simple ideas on how readers can do the same. This collection includes Allen's favorite recipes, most from his own kitchen and some adapted from family and friends. All are inspired by his own garden.
