Ch Winner of the 2016 James Beard Award for American Cooking One of Bon Appétit's best books of the year A year of fresh, simple, seasonal cooking from a rising-star chef running his grandfather's five-acre farm on Martha's Vineyard. This is the heartfelt declaration of a new American way of food, celebrating a year of cooking and farming on the island of Martha's Vineyard. Chris Fischer is a chef, farmer, and writer whose roots on the island run twelve generations deep. His cooking combines practical, rural ingenuity with skill acquired in the world's leading kitchens. The result is singular and exciting. Beetlebung Farm, his grandparents' five-acre parcel in the town of Chilmark, is both Fischer's inspiration and the source for the fine raw materials he showcases. These recipes express the unique understanding of ingredients that comes from a life spent hauling in lobster pots, cultivating vegetables, tracking game in the woods, and butchering his own meat. In this beautifully illustrated homage to the family and community that raised him, Fischer weaves seasonal menus through stories of growing up on the island, conjuring the smoke of oak-wood fires, the brine of Great Pond oysters, and the satisfaction of a well-earned meal. The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook is a clear and essential record of contemporary New England cuisine.

    What a wonderful story with deep familial roots and fresh farm cooking. Beautiful pictures and I can't wait to Carmelize Brussels sprouts and drink a Concord grape Bellini and make a fresh blackberry pie! I can smell the ingredients as I read the recipes!

    As a cookbook with many essays about foods and memories, this is as much a browsing book as a book for recipes. Many of the food ideas count on freshly caught fish or recently killed meat. As someone who doesn't burn off bad food with heavy labor, I look at a recipe for mashed potatoes that assumes four tablespoons of butter EACH PERSON, before adding on anything at the table, and laugh. This is a taste and idea joy, and I bought it after returning the library copy, but I'll be very surprised if As a cookbook with many essays about foods and memories, this is as much a browsing book as a book for recipes.

This is a taste and idea joy, and I bought it after returning the library copy, but I'll be very surprised if I ever make anything from it. But I will croon over it anyway. (BTW, this is one of the few cookbooks I purchased in Kindle format. The photos are not flashy nor do they provide instructions. I decided all I really needed was the language.)

    Some takeaways - Roasted Plums (with black peppercorns!). Leek and Asparagus soup. Scrambled eggs - beat the eggs for one minute before cooking. It does make them lighter and fluffier.

    An interesting read for island and family history, current and culinary views. Plus, the author, Chris Fischer, married Amy Schumer. An interesting duo.

This is a cookbook for a seasoned chef, someone who wants to try something out of their comfort zone, someone who wants to cook like an upscale restaurant chef, or someone who has a cookbook collection and wants to add another one. In the advanced copy that I received, all of the pictures were in black and white, however, I could tell from their quality that they were going to be extraordinary when the finished copy showed them in color. The cookbook has some nice recollections of life on the small farm just outside of Martha's Vineyard and personal anecdotes. However, for the humble, home cook like myself, the recipes weren't necessarily too complicated, but they required ingredients that most home cooks don't find in their local grocery story. Examples of some of the recipes: Potted Duck with Radishes, Sausage in Grape Leaves with Oysters on the Half Shell, Veal Tartare with Shiitakes, Pot Roasted Pheasant with Bread, Bonito Crudo, etc. For me, it was a nice cookbook to page through and read the recipes, the small passages with them and look at the beautiful pictures, however, the recipes, for the most part, are not ones that I would use.

    Definitely of-the-moment in terms of design: beautiful matte color photos of old wash tubs and baskets of berries. And fish-heads and pig butchery, too - the squid on page 9 is just gorgeous. I liked a few of the text vignettes - such as that about Nancy Luce and her chickens and predilection for milk, or the page about Johnny the oyster guy - but found a lot of the exposition about food to be solipsistic.

As an outsider, however, I found little new in terms of flavor or technique to inspire me. Choose this book to soothe you and offer a little escapism, or if you want pretty pictures while you're developing a classic menu.

    I received this book as part of Goodreads advance copy giveaway in May. The setting of Martha's Vineyard is evident in the number of recipes calling for seafood.

The book has a great selection of photographs scattered throughout the book, so the reader never forgets the Martha's Vineyard setting. From appetizers to dessert, this book has what you need to have a great meal thoughout the year.

    I received this book in the Goodreads giveaway. I thought this cookbook would be highlighting Farm cooking recipes and it certainly did offer many recipes to try. However, the recipes were for more exotic recipes, not easily found ingredients which made is a little hard for me to say I would be trying them. However, I would say that the writing, pictures and writing is excellent. I think a more adventurous cook would love this cookbook.

    Beautiful book, but the recipe for cooking chicken breasts in salt was a disaster. Not sure if I did something wrong, but they were so salty that they were inedible. The book is divided into menus based upon seasons, and recipes seem to lean heavily on seafood/fish. An interesting read but not a practical cookbook for me.

    Charmingly personal stories interwoven with this history of the island and its people make this cookbook special. The recipes are generally simple with short ingredient lists, the origin of the food always important and respected. Beautiful photography as well.

    I heard about this through the author's sister, Lydia Fischer, who is a brilliant and passionate musician. Talent runs in this family.

    A wonderful book, as much so because of the family stories and traditions that this young chef/farmer relays as the recipes he shares.

    This cookbook was almost painfully wordy. I appreciated that the recipes were sorted seasonally, but the memoir aspect was a snooze and the recipes were unnecessarily 3-4 pages long.
