Culinary expert, eco-stylist, and food enthusiast, Kerry Dunnington has assembled a lengthy collection of her family’s best recipes and compiled This Book Cooks, Farm-Fresh Traditional Recipes for Healthy Contemporary Cooking. The book features nearly 200 superbly-seasoned, beautifully presented, eco-friendly meals that she’s selected to serve as the center of any occasion, from an intimate family dinner to a large holiday celebration.
Below is a sample of some of her best summertime offerings:
Summer Corn Pancakes
“When fresh corn is abundant during the summer months, it seems I am always gratefully decobbing and making these tasty pancakes. I chop half of the corn kernels because they are a great contrast to the whole corn kernels. Bacon and fried green tomatoes are delicious accompaniments.”
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons neutral oil
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup yellow corn flour
- ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups fresh corn kernels
- Butter and syrup
