Led by PLG neighbor and blogger Erin Orr of the blog Big Sis Little Dish, the new Cookbook Club in Prospect Lefferts Gardens comes together to create connection and build community through food. For July (and for the inaugural meeting of the club!), the group will be cooking and bringing recipes from Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables by Joshua McFadden, renowned chef and vegetable whisperer. Six Seasons focuses on seasonal vegetables, telling readers the best time and best way to eat your veggies, whether it be raw, sautéed, broiled, braised, or roasted. Perfect for produce from the CSA or farmer’s market, these recipes may seem simple, but they’ve got big flavor.
