Winner, James Beard Award for Best Book in Vegetable-Focused Cooking Named a Best Cookbook of the Year by the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Bon Appétit, Food Network Magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, USA Today, Seattle Times, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Library Journal, Eater, and more “Never before have I seen so many fascinating, delicious, easy recipes in one book. . . . [Six Seasons is] about as close to a perfect cookbook as I have seen . . . a book beginner and seasoned cooks alike will reach for repeatedly.” —Lucky Peach Joshua McFadden, chef and owner of renowned trattoria Ava Gene’s in Portland, Oregon, is a vegetable whisperer. After years racking up culinary cred at New York City restaurants like Lupa, Momofuku, and Blue Hill, he managed the trailblazing Four Season Farm in coastal Maine, where he developed an appreciation for every part of the plant and learned to coax the best from vegetables at each stage of their lives. In Six Seasons, his first book, McFadden channels both farmer and chef, highlighting the evolving attributes of vegetables throughout their growing seasons—an arc from spring to early summer to midsummer to the bursting harvest of late summer, then ebbing into autumn and, finally, the earthy, mellow sweetness of winter. Each chapter begins with recipes featuring raw vegetables at the start of their season. As weeks progress, McFadden turns up the heat—grilling and steaming, then moving on to sautés, pan roasts, braises, and stews. His ingenuity is on display in 225 revelatory recipes that celebrate flavor at its peak.

Thanks to a combination of prehistoric events and prime location, Oregon’s Willamette Valley is arguably one of the best growing regions in North America. Roughly two decades ago, when the “Farm to Table” movement was establishing its roots, culinary talent from around the globe began flocking to the valley to take advantage of the area’s bounty. Located near the north end of the nation’s new Bread Basket, Portland was a city that embraced creativity and independent spirit, while simultaneously being one of the most affordable west coast cities in the country. Thanks to these and a number of other factors, Portland became the eye of a culinary storm that began swirling around the state of Oregon. By the time the clouds cleared, a sleepy little river town in the Pacific Northwest had become a world-renowned food Mecca. Unique Eats and Eateries of Portland, Oregon tells that story. In Unique Eats and Eateries of Portland, Oregon, culinary writer, published author, and guide, Adam Sawyer, details a food scene bookended by the epicurean proving grounds of the food cart pods and James Beard Award-winning, chef-driven restaurants.
