Fresh. Flavorful. Unpretentious. Food this good doesn’t need much of an introduction, and the inspired, down-home fare served at Foster’s Market speaks for itself . . . and keeps the locals coming back day after day.
In Fresh Every Day, Sara Foster continues the tradition of soulful, seasonally inspired cooking, with more than two hundred of the New Southern recipes made famous at her eponymous markets. She adapts the skills and secrets of a successful professional kitchen for dishes and flavors that speak to the way we really cook at home, from slow-cooked stews and roasted chicken to burgers and salad meals born of leftovers. No elaborate techniques or esoteric ingredients here—just good home cooking elevated to company fare. Cornbread Panzanella with Avocado. Pan-Roasted Halibut with Cherry Tomatoes and Butternut Squash. Fall Off the Bone Baby Back Ribs. Molasses Sweet Potato Pie. “Take these recipes,” Sara invites, “take everything you know and feel about food, and have fun cooking.”
A cookbook for all seasons bursting with recipes easy enough for any day of the week, Fresh Every Day brings new meaning to comfort food.

“Sara Foster is the rarest cook I know. She has a sensible, down-to-earth approach that eludes others. She understands good food. More important, she knows intuitively how to create dishes to please the widest audience imaginable. I love her style, which is graceful and homespun at the same time. She has taught me that great food really is in the details.” —Jonathan Waxman
