Connecticut Farmer & Feast

Harvesting Local Bounty

Book Description

A beautifully illustrated cookbook
with profiles of the people and their produce

 

Meet fifty of the passionate farmers who proudly contribute the locally grown produce, meats, cheeses, and other food items featured in farm stands and top restaurants throughout the Nutmeg State. Connecticut Farmer & Feast is a labor of love—a heartfelt invitation into the lives of Connecticut farmers and the magic they produce from the soil.

 

With sumptuous full-color photos and elegantly written profiles throughout—showcasing lives rich in both food and history—this book carries the added bonus of up to three individually created recipes featuring each producer’s specialty food.

 

Connecticut Farmer & Feast reconnects Nutmeggers, whether they reside within or beyond state lines, to the bounty of Connecticut, and serves as a memento of food experiences for visitors as well. Above all, it is a guide, a reference, and a friendly introduction for anyone who wants to put a face to their food—and understand where their food is from and how it was produced.
