Leigh Belanger is a Boston-based food writer and the program director at Chefs Collaborative, a national network of chefs and culinary professionals dedicated to improving the food system through education and community-building. She is working on her master’s degree in gastronomy from Boston University and is the mother of a very enthusiastic young eater.
The Boston Homegrown Cookbook features mouth-watering recipes from 28 chefs and restaurants in the Boston area who subscribe to the philosophy that locally grown, sustainable foods taste best. The recipes are lavishly illustrated with colorful photos of the dishes, chefs, and local farmers who are dedicated to growing the best local foods.
“In addition to celebrating local heroes, seasonal food, and having recipes you’ll want to try year round, this is a beautiful book. You may want to keep it on your coffee table so you can open it often, each season, and try new recipes.” – Bostonzest.com
