Eat Up is a new local cookbook series produced by Gaining Ground. It is a 4-part, seasonal cookbook and the spring edition is available now.
It is gorgeous! The pencil sketches on the front are fabulous and the photography inside is stellar. It is available (for free!!) at the local markets and there are also a few cooking demonstrations scheduled to showcase the recipes. Check out the schedule for those dates.
One of the recipes I’ve seen talked about the most is the beet brownies. I’ve not made this particular recipe but I have made the Beet Cake from Fine Cooking. I can attest that beets + chocolate = fabulousness. Crazy, but true! Everyone that tasted this cake said it was the best chocolate cake they had ever had. I would love to attribute that to my cooking skills but it was the beets, really.
Make sure you pick up a copy of the Spring edition; there are some great recipes to try!
