A year of fresh, simple, seasonal cooking from a rising-star chef running his grandfather''s five-acre farm on Martha''s Vineyard.
This is the heartfelt declaration of a new American way of food, celebrating a year of cooking and farming on the island of Martha''s Vineyard.

Beetlebung Farm, his grandparents'' five-acre parcel in the town of Chilmark, is both Fischer''s inspiration and the source for the fine raw materials he showcases.

In this beautifully illustrated homage to the family and community that raised him, Fischer weaves seasonal menus through stories of growing up on the island, conjuring the smoke of oak-wood fires, the brine of Great Pond oysters, and the satisfaction of a well-earned meal.The Beetlebung Farm Cookbookis a clear and essential record of contemporary New England cuisine.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a magical book about coming home to Martha''s Vineyard in time to savor the last years of a beloved grandfather''s farming life. Chris Fischer''s stories of fishing, hunting, farming, and cooking evoke the simplicity and the complexity of a rural life, and how the quiet sophistication of this natural world follows him in his pursuit of memorable meals. As in the books of M.F.K. Fisher, these recipes emerge from the stories, and you feel the presence of the cook at the table. Chris is an out of the box talent: a true individual, a fine chef, and a resonant writer. This is a book to cherish and read again and again." -Michael Van Valkenburgh, award-winning landscape architect
