This is a book about scrumptious food and the professional chefs who are advocates of sustainable, garden-fresh foods for the everyday table. The place where they practice their culinary magic is called Hollyhock. Located on Cortes Island, Canada, the well-known restaurant is a haven for foodies who love memorable cuisine. Most of the produce is grown on-site in a one-acre French intensive, bio-dynamic garden or from local growers. The chefs’ creations range from salads with special dressings to tasty sweets for dessert. Much of the cuisine has an international flavor thanks to interesting spices; the reader will also find new versions of old fashion specialties. —Marilyn K. Alaimo, garden writer and volunteer, Chicago Botanic Garden.
