Now, GCM’s first cookbook puts the spotlight on unique recipes from its diverse vendors, bringing their authentic tastes to your home kitchen. From Horse Thief BBQ’s Nashville-Style Hot Fried Chicken Sando to Madcapra’s Sumac Beet Soda to Golden Road’s Crunchy Avocado Tacos, here are over 85 distinctive recipes, plus spectacular photography that shows off the food, the people, and the daily bustle and buzz. Stories about the Market’s vibrant history and interviews with its prominent customers and vendors dot the pages as well. Whether you’ve visited and want to make your favorite dishes at home, or are simply looking for a cookbook that provides a plethora of multi-national cuisine, The Grand Central Market Cookbook is sure to make your kitchen just a little bit cooler.

My thoughts: For years, my family had a booth at a local farmers market, so I have a bit of a soft spot for them.;) I love the variety of products, color, and people that you can find at a farmers market. This cookbook makes me excited to once again visit a
market and enjoy the culture and food. This book is a great one to pick up to get one excited about markets and CSA's! I highly recommend the flavorful recipes and lovely photography!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
