Last year Cathy and I explored the great food of Italy in our cookbook demonstrations. This year our focus is closer to home - in fact it IS home!  Join us as we celebrate the best tastes of Illinois and our surrounding states. — Sandy

Ruffage by Abra Berens

Ruffage: A Practical Guide to Vegetables is not your typical cookbook—it is a how-to-cook book of a variety of vegetables. Author Abra Berens—chef, farmer, Midwesterner—shares a collection of techniques that result in new flavors, textures, and ways to enjoy all the vegetables you want to eat. From confit to caramelized and everything in between—braised, blistered, roasted and raw—the cooking methods covered here make this cookbook a go-to reference.
