Heather Hunter, Quarry Market co-founder and director, says "Our hope is that people will shop at a farmers market to enjoy the bounty of each season and then return home to stir up these delicious dishes that each represent the contributors' love of food."Hunter compiled the recipes, designed and edited the book (with a little help from her friends).
Priced at $22, this cookbook is a great idea for a hostess gift, Secret Santa, stocking stuffer or just a thoughtful present for the friend or family member who cooks as well as those who want to cook.
The Quarry Farmers and Ranchers Market is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sundays at the Quarry on Basse Road and U.S. 281, near the Whole Foods parking lot.
