Kerry is fanning the culinary flames again. With Tasting the Seasons, her second cookbook, eco-endorsers and food enthusiasts will be lured back in time, and into the kitchen by Kerry's inventive and irresistible recipes.

Tasting the Seasons includes an impressive variety of fast and fresh, irresistible, user-friendly recipes: family-oriented one-dish wonders, updated classics, and creative gourmet entrees - all presented with a steady focus on how to identify, select, and prepare foods using ecologically sound principles.

Gathered in a highly readable and entertaining format with humorous culinary-related stories are nearly 250 recipes for superbly seasoned, beautifully presented meals to serve as the center of any occasion, from an intimate family dinner to a large holiday celebration.

Inside Tasting the Seasons, readers will find crowd-pleasing appetizers, novel breakfast and brunch menus in which fresh fruit and vegetables often take center stage, and a variety of soups. The entree section is devoted to the pescatarian diet; a smaller portion of the book features meat, chicken, and pork dishes (reflecting Kerry's opinion about the environmental impact meat has on the planet). Vegetarian readers will love the chapters devoted to cold and warm garden greenery dishes. Irresistible recipes for breads, biscuits, rolls and sweet endings will become household favorites.

Recipes are enhanced with ideas and strategies for successful entertaining. Tasting the Seasons also has an extensive section on how to identify, select, and prepare foods along ecologically sound principles, and a chance to take the 365 eco-challenge, to incorporate those principles as a way of cooking, dining and entertaining.

Kerry has made certain even experienced cooks will learn from the wealth of up-to-date information about following food seasons; incorporating fresh, seasonal, locally-sourced food into balanced and appealing menus in ways that protect the environment.
