A Sun-Kissed Cookbook

Whisking readers back to a lyrical time, when farm-to-table wasn’t considered gourmet but instead, the standard, Brigit Binns writes The New Wine Country Cookbook: Recipes from California’s Central Coast. With ingredients from the fertile region nestled between Monterey and Santa Barbara, Brigit crafts incredible, honest dishes. The warm sheep’s milk ricotta and tomato tartlets make a charming appetizer. Don’t miss the grilled lobster with Syrah butter and orange sea salt. It’s an edible ode to the rich, fresh characteristics of the Central Coast wine region. Brigit also calls on local winemakers to help pair her dishes with the perfect coastal Californian wine, as well as another choice from farther afield, such as France, Spain or Italy. Brigit Binns’s captivating New Wine Country Cookbook: Recipes from California’s Central Coast is available for $35.
