Think this whole fresh food thing is only for the chichi yuppies next door? Author and top Canadian chef Craig Flinn heard that objection from people who love his previous cookbooks -- but can't cook with expensive fresh and local ingredients every night. Chef Craig took that response as a challenge: how to cook with market fresh local ingredients that you can easily put together without breaking the bank.In this new book he offers a tempting collection of 80+ recipes that are fresh, local - and affordable. From delectable brunch dishes like Pork Schnitzel with Fried Free Range Egg, Swiss Chard, and Brown Butter to seafood dishes like Fried Steamer Clams with Celery Root Purée, Lemon and Watercress or the decadent Moccacino Crème Caramel, chef Craig shows how making smart choices while you shop at your local farmers market or supermarket can wow your guests or family while keeping your grocery bill down.These recipes have been tested by home cooks and adapted to meet busy schedules and modest budgets.The full-colour photography and preparation times listed for each recipe will help the home cook chef it up like a pro in no time at all.
