A deliciously "Ripe" cookbook!

Posted on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 by HylaryL


Last week, author and Silicon Valley resident Cheryl Sternman Rule visited the Morgan Hill Libary to discuss her new cookbook Ripe: A Fresh, Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables. The program was wonderful, and for those who weren't able to make it...don't worry! The library owns the cookbook and you can reserve a copy for yourself today!

What makes this cookbook so unique is how beautiful it is. Organized by color, each fruit or vegetable is accompanied by a gorgeous picture (courtesy of photographer Paulette Phlipot), followed by a recipe. Some of my favorites include "Open-Faced Smoky Tomato Grilled Cheese," "Corn with Cilantro-Lime Salt," "Avocado Tangerine Salsa" and "Polenta-Stuffed Chard with Bubbly Parmesan." Look for some of the more unusual ingredients at your local farmer's market .
