The Book

Through stories and simple “whole foods” recipes, Simply in Season, a new World Community Cookbook explores how the food we put on our tables impacts our local and global neighbors. It shows the importance of eating local, seasonal food — and fairly traded food — inviting readers to make choices that offer security and health for our communities, for the land, for body and spirit.

In April 2004, when a call was put out for seasonal local recipes, just under 800 contributors responded over the next year, submiting over 1,500 recipes and participating in just under 3,000 recipe tests. The authors Cathleen Hockman-Wert and Mary Beth Lind shepherded the recipes through the testing stages and choosing the best seasonal range of delicious recipes.

Simply in Season Extended version is available in a plastic comb bound, soft-cover edition for $24.99 U.S. and in standard paperback edition for $16.99 U.S. You can purchase Simply in Season cookbooks from MCC Resources. Simply in Season is also available for review and purchase at many local booksellers. For bulk orders, contact Herald Press.
