Spoon by Maria Herb and Dana Hay @SpoonOrders

SPOON: Soup, Stew & Chowder Recipes (Spring/Summer) (Cooking in Season #1)

Spoon: Soup, Chowder, & Stew Recipes (Spring/Summer) offers 25 delicious recipes that are easy-to-prepare, healthy meals that are also full-flavoured and delicious. With their seasonal approach, Maria Herb and Dana Hay provide you with recipes featuring fresh, local ingredients. Maria's and Dana's company SPOON sold soups at the local farmers' markets, using ingredients from the farmers there. Customers returned weekly to stock up on fresh soups, chowders, and stews. This SPOON cookbook collection contains favourites from the market, as well as many new recipes. Cooking with foods that are in season helps to keep your grocery bill down, and you can take advantage of the selection at your local farmers' market! Most of the recipes in this book can be prepared in less than 30 minutes, and will leave you enough to freeze the extra for another time.
