At Stone Pier Press, we want to make serving up climate-friendly meals easy, delicious, and fun.
While cooking seasonally makes obvious sense for the planet, it's also incredibly rewarding for the palate. Food that's fresh from the vine or recently pulled from the ground is richer in flavor, more nutritious, and has less potential to turn into waste. Selecting what's in season from your local grocery store or farmer's market often means you're supporting your community, too.
These three seasonally minded menus highlight produce that is available during the sometimes long winter months.
Through a variety of different dishes, these menus focus on transforming root vegetables, different types of citrus and hearty greens into flavorful, comforting meals that'll warm you inside and out.
