Led by PLG neighbor and blogger Erin Orr of the blog Big Sis Little Dish, the quarterly Cookbook Club in Prospect Lefferts Gardens comes together to create connection and build community through food. For January, the group will be cooking and bringing recipes from Dishing up the Dirt by popular farm-to-table blogger Andrea Bemis. This cookbook offers 100 authentic farm-to-table recipes, arranged by season. Andrea’s recipes focus on using whole, locally-sourced foods—incorporating the philosophy of eating as close to the land as possible. While many recipes are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegetarian, many others include elemental ingredients like bread, cheese, eggs, meat, and sweeteners, which are incorporated in new and inventive ways. In short essays throughout the book, Andrea also presents an honest glimpse of life on Tumbleweed Farm—the real life of a farmer, not the shabby-chic fantasy often portrayed—offering fascinating and frequently entertaining details about where the food on our dinner tables comes from.


Current book group picks are always 15% off at Greenlight, in the store or online.


Please contact Erin at [email protected] to RSVP and confirm what dish you will be bringing. Erin is happy to recommend a recipe from the book if you’d like help deciding!
