More and more shoppers are making an effort to eat local, whether through home delivery programs, buying seasonal fruit and vegetables at the grocery store, or eating at restaurants that specialize in local fare. Eating Local (2010 Andrews McMeel), from Sur La Table and Janet Fletcher, makes it easy to savour those farmer's market finds you come home with every week. The book is packed with simple recipes from ten small American farmers, including salads, appetizers, roasts, pastas and desserts. Try all three recipes below for a locally-themed dinner party — you can easily substitute fruits and veggies that are in season in your area — or incorporate one into your mid-week menu for a fresh alternative to your usual dishes.
