Stacy Lyn Harris, co-host of The Sporting Chef, shares her tips and more than 100 recipes for food from the garden, pasture, woods, and water
With nine mouths to feed on a daily basis, Alabama chef Stacy Lyn Harris keeps it simple, but doesn’t skimp on elegance. Her seven kids enjoy homegrown food, prepared beautifully and sustainably thanks to a few chickens in the back, a year-round kitchen garden, milk from a dairy farmer just outside of town, and locally-sourced free-range meats. Always served up in Stacy Lyn’s rustic-refined style, her dishes are classic Old South, but with a fresh, healthy, beautiful twist.
Featuring full-color photos, Stacy Lyn’s Harvest Cookbook includes more than 100 field- and farm-to-table recipes that meet her three-part criteria: family friendly (easy, with simple ingredients), fresh, and tasty. There are cherished family recipes, free-range meat dishes derived from her husband’s hunting obsession, and lighter takes on decidedly southern classics all prepared simply, in the freshest way possible. The book covers food from the garden, pasture, woods, and water in four sections: The Garden features Fried Green Tomatoes, Jalapeño Poppers, Corn Chowder, Fried Squash with Tomatoes and Pesto, and other recipes to make you wish it was summer all year long. Beyond the Garden delves into beekeeping and raising chickens for an amazing Honey Butter to pour over Cinnamon Pear Buns and your favorite Egg Salad Sandwiches with Refrigerator Pickles. From the Pasture focuses on free-range, pasture-fed game recipes like Braised Short Ribs, Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo, and Juicy Pork Chops, plus a how-to on sausage-making. Seafood and Fish includes Stacy Lyn’s favorite entertaining recipes, Best Ever Clam Bake and Perfect Fish Tacos.
Included are 15 how to articles sprinkled throughout the book offer steps for cooking and eating sustainably in any setting including container gardening, saving seeds, preserving, foraging, composting and more.
