New cookbook to check out

Syndetics book coverHarvest to heat : cooking with America’s best chefs, farmers, and artisans.
While most other foodies have been caught up in Annabel Langbein fever, I’ve been enjoying something a bit different.  Harvest to Heat is an American cookbook by Darryl Estrine and Kelly Kochendorfer, advocates of using sustainable, organic and local ingredients.  They have drawn together top US chefs – such as Rick Bayless, Thomas Keller and Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio – to create recipes that showcase artisanal and regional produce.  Its certainly not everyday cooking, but it is inspirational!  And the photography and styling are great – I totally recommend.
