On my weekly trip to Borders Book last week, I found this great cookbook “California Fresh Harvest” which was published by the Junior League of Oakland-East Bay, Inc. This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook, one you could call a “coffee table” book and includes lots of tips, quips, pictures, helps and information on the area. The recipes look great and I plan to try some of them over the next few weeks and will share them here. The most important thing about this cookbook was the price…a mere $3.99!!! (originally about $20) for a large, beautifully bound hardback cookbook! Wow, my kind of deal and being the cookbook collector I am, a wonderful find! If you have a Borders Books near you, I would suggest making a trip there and picking up this book. I have found many of the Junior League cookbooks to be excellent with fast but delicious recipes. Others I like, the Junior Leagues of Washington and Charleston.
