Description: Linda and Fred Griffith, authors of the bestselling The Best of the Midwest, learned from visiting dozens of restaurants and interviewing dozens of restaurateurs dial the best meals are those that are prepared with only the freshest and most exceptional ingredients.

Furthermore, many restaurateurs and cooks insist that the highest-quality ingredients come from farmers and purveyors who use scrupulously organic or natural methods -- no pesticides, antibiotics, hormones, or chemical fertilizers.

Intrigued, the Griffiths set out to meet the people who are in the forefront of this trend. What they found was a group of fascinating individuals producing the finest foods in America, all linked by their concern for how food will taste at (he table, not how quickly or cheaply if can be brought to the table. 

For example, readers will discover that using Kenneth Weston s carefully nurtured varieties of antique apples from Wisconsin will allow them to elevate "Almost Mother's Apple Pie" way beyond what Mom made, and come to understand why Jean Joho of Chicago's Everest Room depends upon John and Sukey Jamison of Pennsylvania to supply him with the milk-fed lambs for his "Roast Leg of Lamb with Garlic Flan." 

In addition, readers will delight in meeting Jon Rowley of Washington state, whose efforts to reform fishing regulations are only slightly more impressive than his strawberry shortcake: shiver to think of Orlando and JoAnn Casados's alarmingly hot New Mexico cool-weather chiles: and learn the "three CV of organic farming from Ohio's Adele Straub -- "You have to be crazy, courageous, and creative."

While not all of the farmers featured in The New American farm Cookbook use certified organic methods, they axe all linked by their desire and determination to preserve and enhance the viability of the land for now and for "generations to come. The ingenuity, warmth, and commitment to quality that these farmers exemplify are inspirational and affirmative of the best that American life has to offer.
