“The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook,” released in April by Mirabelle Press, is the recipient of two national awards — first place in the 2012 Writers Digest Book Awards and first place in the Regional Cookbook category for the Indie Awards of Book Excellence.
Authored by locals Ann M. Evans of Davis, co-founder of the Davis Farmers Market, and Georgeanne Brennan of Winters, a James Beard and Julia Child award winner, the book is organized by season and illustrated with photos by Craig Lee of farmers, the market, and, of course, the food and recipes.
“The Davis Farmers Market Cookbook” is available at local retailers and on Amazon.com.
