    I need to check out Lucid Foods at a bookstore ASAP! Louisa’s recipes sound delicious, healthy, AND perfect for our family’s way of life. It would be so refreshing to use recipes that incorporate fresh, seasonal ingredients as opposed to canned foods. I was just lamenting to my husband that I’m discouraged by having to do all the “canned food–>fresh ingredient” conversions for our meals…it’s really time consuming and the meals turn out to be more like food experiments and I’m enjoying cooking less and less. Thanks for sharing this new cookbook…I’m eager to read it!

    Lucid Food sounds like the perfect cookbook for me and my partner. We tend to run out of ideas of what to cook with our CSA share by Fall (how much butternut squash and roasted potatoes can you have?) and we need some new recipes to keep us on track with our commitment of eating locally and seasonally.
