"Farm Lunch" is a cookbook that is so personal, quiet and thoughtful it's almost like reading a diary. One of our favorite pages is about "Comet Eggs," encouraging the reader to use a deep stock pot to poach an egg so that a white tail like a shooting star forms on its long dive down.
Written by farmer, cook and writer Marjory Sweet based in Santa Fe, New Mexico, it's a reflection on growing and preparing daily meals based on what's available on her farm and in her pantry. Instead of providing a set of specific recipes to be replicated, the book describes an overall approach to cooking and a framework of ingredients that can be adapted and combined in countless ways.
Inspired by vintage community cookbooks, how-to handbooks, and 1970’s artists’ exhibition catalogues, it's a publication intended for anyone who consumes, prepares, or thinks about food. Design and illustrations by Eva Claycomb.
