I recently had a chance to read through this beautiful cookbook by Karista Bennett which is Inspired by Oregon’s local bounty.
One of the recipes looked and sounded great to me including the Grilled Halibut with blueberry ginger salsa; Winter Vegetable Cobbler with chive cream biscuits, Pear and Cardamom Cobbler and more.
I then set out to make one of them at home with a slight variation as cod was easier to find in my local grocery store than halibut. Here is my version, the Grilled Cod with Blueberry Ginger Salsa made with local BC Blueberries and mint from the garden.
Rugged coastline, lush valleys, rustic mountains, and wide-open plains—no matter where you turn, Oregon is a local-food treasure box. With history and culture aplenty, the state is also known for its trove of small farms, ranches, orchards, breweries, and artisans that supply a bountiful culinary selection.
With charming farm profiles and family memories created around food, this book will have readers far and wide dreaming of the Beaver State.
Now available through Amazon and other bookstores across the country.
