Recipes from the Farm. . . for Intentional Eaters ($7.99 US), a photo cookbook by Crystal Lake, IL, native Beth Eileen Wilson. The agrarian recipes in this beautifully photographed book are truly flavorful, simple, and accessible. Cooks of all ages and experience will appreciate the ease and convenience of cooking with unprocessed, locally-sourced foods.
Not surprisingly, raspberries and asparagus are among the ingredients featured in Recipes from the Farm. The book is based on a photo-blog kept by Ms. Wilson during an internship with Grace Farm Studios, during which she field-tested her recipes, wrote about sustainable farming practices for the benefit of farm visitors, and designed a series of eco-activities for children.
Beth Eileen Wilson has a strong background in marine biology and environmental engineering. She earned an undergraduate degree in biology from Marquette University and a masters in environmental science, with a concentration in water chemistry, from the University of Sydney, Australia. Her thesis on heavy metal contamination in Sydney Harbour received high honors. Ms. Wilson teaches yoga, has a love of travel and photography, and a passion for ‘real’ food, organic and sustainable farming practices.
