The Berk­shire hills of west­ern Mass­a­chu­setts are famous for their unique cul­ture, from scenic views to artis­tic and lit­er­ary attrac­tions. But in addi­tion to the region’s clas­sic land­marks, the Berk­shires also boasts an impres­sive num­ber of fam­i­ly-run farms. Togeth­er with local restau­rants, these farms add anoth­er fea­ture to Berk­shires cul­ture: heart­warm­ing and home­grown food. Telling the sto­ry of fam­i­ly-run agri­cul­ture through the lan­guage of food, The Berk­shires Farm Table Cook­book offers 125 recipes to recall the mag­ic of the Berk­shire region. Sweet Corn Pan­cakes, Car­rot Soup with Sage and Mint, Con­fet­ti Veg­etable and Goat Cheese Lasagna and more cel­e­brate the lush land­scape of the west­ern New Eng­land area. Com­plete with farm pro­files and vibrant pho­tographs, The Berk­shires Farm Table Cook­book paints a vivid por­trait of the rela­tion­ship between the earth and what we eat. Although focus­ing on one region, the sto­ries of the area’s farm­ers and chefs, and the recipes, extend well beyond the Berkshires.
