Published by HarperCollins Publishers
Narrow, lightweight lavender Oriental-type eggplant is the most dependably sweet and tender type for this and other recipes, Eastern or Western.
At a New Haven Arts & Ideas Festival concert on the green, my friend Ellen made an amazing potato salad with fresh Dill, sliced Radishes, chopped green Onions and Hellmann’s mayonnaise (our favorite when homemade is simply not possible). The addition of Radishes was stunningly flavorful, causing us to look at potato salad in a completely different light.

2002 Award Winning Recipe!
We love the unusual combination of Blue/Purple Potatoes and Lavender in this savory, heart-warming recipe. A Master Gardener, Mrs. Thurman has kept the ingredients without measurement: "this recipe can not be precise: only one's palate knows the right proportions." It is a startling, beautiful presentation.

Featuring his own homegrown vegetables and herbs in menus inspired by his father’s love for cooking, Gene created this amazing Broccoli Pecan Salad. Just one bite will convert avowed Broccoli haters into avid Broccoli aficionados. And it is raw Broccoli~the best ever for you! Our family cannot have dinner together without it. We love to make this exactly like Gene does, but some like to briefly steam the Broccoli ever so slightly first. If you decide to steam it first, plunge it into an ice bath to stop it from cooking further and to preserve its greenness. Drain and chill before making the salad. You can also change it up by adding dried cranberries.
We love every form of ginger possible: fresh ginger root, crystallized ginger, stem ginger and ginger jam. We add it into everything possible and here, we came up with what we think is a winner of a Carrot dish.
Odessa Piper, founder & chef
Odessa Piper, one of the most talented regional chefs in America, founded L'Etoile Restaurant in Madison, Wisconsin over 42 years ago. As its former Chef-Proprietor, she has become famous for marrying fine cuisine with the honest fruits of the land. Over the years, her passion for fresh, seasonal produce of exceptional quality has led her to forge bonds with and to nurture the local organic farmers who supply her with these jewels. As she herself puts it, "We believe that respect for nature and all that grows is the beginning of the understanding of good food. We strive to work with ingredients that are cultivated in accordance with their natural cycles, and are grown in their native and adapted soils. Eating locally and seasonally nourishes both the land and our communities." Odessa's style of cuisine combines the bounty of her own countryside with the traditions of France and a dash of genius as well. We asked her a for a recipe that would celebrate the freshness and wholesomeness of Green Beans from the garden.

I confess that there are some nights when I am too lazy to make salad. This is when I pass the Romaine to my husband, the grillmaster, so I can get out of virtually any kitchen time. Grilled Romaine is fantastic with grilled steak and a baked Potato. Sander has grown to love it too, as strange as it first appeared to him..
