Six Seasons by Joshua McFadden
Joshua McFadden, chef and owner of renowned trattoria Ava Gene’s in Portland, Oregon, is a vegetable whisperer. After years racking up culinary cred at top New York City restaurants, he managed the trailblazing Four Season Farm in coastal Maine, where he learned to coax the best from vegetables at each stage of their lives.
In Six Seasons, McFadden channels both farmer and chef, highlighting vegetables throughout their growing seasons. Each chapter begins with recipes featuring raw vegetables at the start of their season. As weeks progress, McFadden turns up the heat—grilling and steaming, then moving on to sautés, pan roasts, braises and stews. His ingenuity shines in 225 recipes that celebrate flavor at its peak. | eA
