Great Reviews for Growing a Feast by Kurt Timmermeister

November 13, 2013

Kurt Timmermeister's forthcoming book Growing a Feast: The Chronicle of a Farm-to-Table Meal (W.W. Norton, Jan 2014) is harvesting some excellent advance praise:

Verdict: Timmermeister has created a feast not just for his dinner guests but for his readers as well. Fans of food and of farm memoirs who have the patience for this journey are in for a treat. --Library Journal

At the end of summer, Timmermeister (Growing a Farmer, 2011) presides over a luscious feast for 20 guests at his 13-acre dairy farm on Vashon Island, Washington. In this beautifully written book, the former restaurateur details the long labor of love behind the feast that began two years earlier with the birth of a calf, Alice...Timmermeister guides the reader through the seasons and the rhythms of planting and harvesting, conveying the visual, aural, and tactile pleasure of growing food. Joining him in his enterprise are a host of food-conscious characters, from Leda, who trades seeds for cheese, to Bill, whose large, thin-skinned tomatoes will find their way into a cake. A delight for foodies, this astonishing book includes recipes for the feast dishes. --Booklist
