Favorite Summer Cookbook & Recipe
by Bridget Levin, Tastemaker in Residence
The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen, from Peter Berley is my go-to summer cookbook. It lets me take full advantage of the glorious produce overflowing farm stands.
One of the most addicting recipes involves bathing tender-crisp steamed green beans in a vinaigrette consisting of cider vinegar, dijon mustard, cayenne, honey, minced red onions and salt and pepper to taste - peak season perfection!
Build your summer-easy menu with a side of Peter’s Watermelon with Fleur de Sel. Sprinkle a pinch of course fleur de sel across fresh slices, a recipe from the newer cookbook Fresh Food Fast, and you will have the perfect accompaniments for whatever you throw on the grill.
