Tracey Medeiros’ 10th anniversary edition of The Vermont Farm Table Cookbook is notable for its enduring recipes, beautiful design and photography. Most importantly, it stands as testament to the strength of the food chain when supported, the enduring legacy of the farmer, the family farm, the rootsy foods that are the backbone of our culture and the needs for more of what’s represented in the table of contents. This classic should be cooked from in your kitchen.

What a pleasure to see the pictures and read the stories of these farms — some I know well, and other I’ve just driven past. They’re our glory in Vermont — and with these recipes it’s a glory that can easily be shared.
