Finally, Linda Steidel’s book, For Every Season There is a Salad, has been released and I got an advance copy to review. Let me tell you, this is a gorgeous book, with delicious recipes and beautiful photos that make your mouth water. Just take a look at the cover and that shows you the quality and craft throughout the whole book. Linda has a gift for making uncomplicated dishes look extraordinary.

On Friday, May 14 Linda will be doing a BOOK SIGNING at Barnes and Noble’s Manhattan Beach Store from 4:00-6:00 PM. There is plenty of parking, so don’t miss this chance to buy the book and have her sign it for you. It is always so interesting to talk to the author of a book in person and hear the whole story.

For Every Season There is a Salad is arranged by the season and is the first in a series of “season” titles Brio Press will release by Linda. From Summer to Autumm to Winter to Spring, Linda celebrates the distinct, savory and exciting dishes of every season. She will convince you that a salad is never just a salad!

This is an example of the beautiful photographs by Mark Choate that appear throughout the book. And the Table of Contents makes me want to cook every recipe, such as:

  • Greek Orzo and Grilled Shrimp Salad with Mustard Dill Vinaigrette
  • Curried Crab & Watermelon Salad with Arugula
  • Mac & Cheese Salad with Buttermilk Dressing
  • Grilled Fig & Arugula Salad with Gorgonzola Toasts
  • Souffled Goat Cheese Tomatoes & Savory Greens with Lemon-Garlic Vinaigrette
  • Grilled Asparagus with Smoked Salmon & Tarragon Mayonnaise on Bitter Greens

Today, May 1st, I went to a book signing by Linda in Redondo Beach and also got the opportunity to talk photography with Mark Choate. It’s always fun to talk to someone who shares one of your passions. Here is a photo I took of them.

So, who is Linda Steidel, anyway? You can read my previous post about her and the famous Corn Bread Tartlets. And by famous, I mean her post has had thousands of page views, the majority from my photos of the Tartlet  on FoodGawker and TasteSpotting. Remember this little guy?

I’ve been going to Linda’s cooking classes for over 10 years and my husband says her classes have changed our lifestyle forever. I always enjoyed cooking, but Linda’s classes show you that anyone can make a gourmet meal.

Thanks Linda!

. . . and thanks Lynne for your wonderful blog.
