Book Review: Fresh From the Farm

What a terrific book, arriving just in time for spring and summer daytrippers who want to check out local food.

"Fresh from the Farm: Great Local Foods from New York State" is a guide to shops and farms from the Hudson Valley out to Long Island's East End.  It's gorgeous and it's packed with information about farmers, cheese shops, winemakers and fishermen and their goods. 
 Subtitled "A guide to the best shops and farms, with recipes," the book covers the 100-mile radius from New York City, uncovering the great diversity in food products to be found by those interested in moving out of the grocery store aisles.
