Ready to create menus from food you grow yourself?

Congratulations, Adriana–and thank you to everyone who submitted Favorite Garden-to-Table Recipes. Some readers’ favorites are destined to become ours too, including Lou Ann Brown’s apple matchsticks, Nicole’s radishes with sea salt and butter, and Melinda’s autumn harvest stew.

After seeing our Readers’ Favorite garden-to-table recipes, author Marie Viljoen writes: “So many appetite stimulating ideas I love them all and am very hungry after reading the comments!

“Adriana’s cucumber gazpacho and emw12’s gazpacho are perfect ways to use super-fresh produce, with little adornment–healthy too, since they’re reprocessed without cooking,” says Viljoen. (For her gazpacho recipe, see p. 147 in her cookbook.)

Above: One woman, one terrace, 992 recipes. It’s the year-long story of how an urban garden grows, produces food, and changes every month. Illustrated by Viljoen’s lush photographs, the book offers seasonal recipes the author developed to take advantage of her own harvest from a fourth-floor balcony garden in Brooklyn.
