From the Farm is the title of the Alberta Farmers’ Market Association (AFMA) cookbook, a new publication that coincides with the AFMA’s 20th anniversary. Morinville Farmers Market Manager Korien Sampson said the book was off the press two weeks ago, but that she rcieved the book in time for last Friday’s market.
“The recipes are with items that can be found at farmers markets,” Sampson said. The recipes are easy to follow and can be made at home by first time cooks with little to no experience, and onwards. The book contains recipes submitted from cooks and chefs from around the province.”
Content of the cookbook include breakfast, starters, vegetables, main dishes, desserts and pantry, and a vegetable freezing guide.
Under the Starters is a submission from the Ukrainian Cultural Heritage Village of Tofield, a recipe for borsch, and a mushroom barley salad from a culinary instructor from Lac La Biche.
The books will be sold throughout the province at local farmers’ markets at a cost of $22.
