The Community Cooks is melting pot of favorite recipes collected from the families of the Pine Hill Waldorf School and the Wilton/Temple Farm Community in Wilton, N.H.
This diverse assortment of tried and true recipes includes something for everyone. Among the trove of tasty treats for everyday as well as for special occasions, you will find recipes for dips that have been popular at countless family gatherings, favorite salad dressing, waffles that surpass all others, pancakes fit for a queen, Aunt Pat’s chicken dish, grandma’s meatballs, chocolate cakes good enough to auction at the next Christmas fair, and exotic recipes brought back from far away places (including a Quechuan Indian dish from Cuzco). The Temple/Wilton Community Farm Specials include inspiring dishes to use all those usual and unusual vegetables from your CSA farm share, and there is a section of fun recipes for children to make on their own.
The Community Cooks is a truly delightful companion in the kitchen thanks to the inventive illustrations of artist Elizabeth Auer and the practical, family-tested recipes, written with charming, anecdotal style.
