I wanted to like this book... I like a number of other Deborah Madison titles. But, sadly, I do not like it. It annoys me, in fact.

No mention of gooseberries. Only one mention of currants. Most recipes... yes, most... are actually recipes for a cake, tart, or savory item that would be nice when SERVED WITH FRUIT ON THE SIDE. Another heavy dose of the recipes are essentially just pairings... naming a fruit and a specific cheese and nut that goes well with it... or listing a "recipe" for pawpaws with a following descriptive paragraph that tells you to eat a pawpaw as is because it's so delicious as nature made it.

Um... maybe she forgot this is a cookbook? Or maybe she never intended it to be a cookbook... but if so she should have changed her table of contents layout and maybe made clear mention of this since her career revolves around, what... that's right, writing cookbooks!

Final note... many of the fruits she identifies are predominantly available in southern/warmer states. I find references to fruits she finds in her New Mexico farmer's market to be completely infuriating when I am located in Kansas and don't have access to the same depth of produce.

Sorry. Again, I WANTED to like it!
