Two days ago I got an email from Mi Ae Lipe who told me she’d included my Roasted Garlic Hummus recipe in an “organic fruit-and-vegetable cookbook” called Tastes from Valley to Bluff: The Featherstone Farm Cookbook. She self-published it to “provide flood relief for some of the hard-hit southeastern Minnesota farms:”
A portion of the cookbook’s proceeds will go toward the Sow the Seeds Fund. In August 2007 many farms in southeast Minnesota, northeast Iowa and southwest Wisconsin, including Featherstone, were in ruins after storms and heavy flooding devastated the area.
Anyway today I got my copy, and holy cow, it’s thick! Nearly 400 pages long. For a collaborative, self-published cookbook, I found the recipes contained within—organized by both season and produce, with lots of supplementary sidebars—to be quite professional. I’m looking forward to flipping through it for culinary inspiration.
And here’s how my recipe looks in print:
Thanks Mi Ae!
