With this shift toward local food sources, shoppers are finding a wide variety of items not available in large supermarkets. Many wonder how to prepare them. Thanks to Lisa Turner, whose Laughing Stock Farm supplies Maine’s best kitchens, preparing great dishes from these local foods is fast, easy and delicious. As past president of the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (the oldest and largest state organic organization in the country), Lisa has a deep appreciation for the value of foods grown close to home. Her new book, Eat Local (Down East, $27.50) is a collection of over one hundred recipes from Maine’s top chefs, farmers, home cooks, and Lisa’s own kitchen.
