Early Praise for Sylvia’s Table
“There’s no shortage of seasonal locavore cookbooks out there, but Sylvia’s Table is especially appealing on other counts. Many of the recipes are uncomplicated and use farm-fresh ingredients, and are explained in a way that children can prepare them…. Take the book into the kitchen for the shiitake, corn and fava-bean salad; mint pesto for lamb on the grill, and a caramelized peach and ginger crisp. The book is also filled with historic tidbits and basic cooking tips, like making stock…. For Budding Locavores.”—Florence Fabricant, The New York Times
“Liz Neumark is one of the most dynamic women in food-and her food is incredibly delicious to boot! She always knocks it out of the park with the freshest, seasonal and succulent ingredients straight from her farm to your table.”
