Good food and good eating are natural extensions of the garden. In Seasonal Recipes from the Garden, Allen showcases the bounty of each season with recipes arranged by when ingredients are at their garden-fresh best. He features 120 Southern recipes peppered with wit, personal anecdotes, gardening tips and cooking tricks. He also includes a short how-to guide in the back of the book that includes information about the food he grows in his garden and some simple ideas on how readers can do the same. This collection includes Allen's favorite recipes, most from his own kitchen and some adapted from family and friends. All are inspired by his own garden.

Very nice with great pictures, really like the stories along with the recipes; the presentation was just wonderful. I felt like I had received a beautiful gift. Thank you! Sueann on 5th Sep 2016
I love the history introductions given before each recipe! I especially enjoy how each recipe was inspired by the produce grown in P. Allen Smith's garden. I am an avid gardener, and have been for 46 years, who loves to go to my garden and pick vegetables and herbs for my meals. There is nothing like it! I share his passion! I also watch his TV shows regularly....very inspiring!
I learned to appreciate growing garden vegetables, crops, raising chickens, cattle and hogs on my Dad's farm in TN when I was young. My children all share my passion for gardening, and are quite the gardeners themselves! I just wish I had a fraction of the land my Dad had so I could grow more that I am able to in my urban yard! (Wonderful memories!)
My favorite recipe, thus far, is the Buttermilk Pie. I do wish he would have included the Clementine Marmalade recipe that he made on his TV show. Rita on 19th Mar 2016
Started with the iron skillet filet mignon for dinner. Went on to the savory grit cakes. Finished with the buttermilk pecan pie (so unusual but sinfully delicious...my new favorite pecan pie!). Next up will be the blue cheese and onion cornbread...I can hardly wait!! Recipes are so classically P. Allen - farm to table intuitive, easy to follow, no fuss ingredients with flavors that jump off the plate! I especially love the charming history introductions to each recipe, I can hear P Allen as I read each one - giving me the feeling of a warm old fashoned family visit. So P. Allen. So very good.

I am anxious to make some of the recipes in your cookbook. Gave a cookbook to my daughter. She was happy to receive it... Unknown on 19th Nov 2015
