"Every one of Anna's recipes is a showstopper! I couldn't wait to see this book all summer long while I was feasting on the food from Loaves & Fishes. You'll love it as much as I do." -- Sheila Lukins, coauthor, "The Silver Palate Cookbooks", and food editor at "Parade" Magazine

"We continue to be devout customers of the wonderful Loaves & Fishes, and now we have an added bonus...a book with Anna's mouthwatering recipes." -- Julie Andrews

The layers of flavors in the dishes are marvelous. Recently our guests raved about her Creamed Carrot soup with Ginger and Lime. Her Citrus-Marinated Salmon is fantastic as well as her Blueberry Crumble and her Blueberry-Rhubarb Pie.
Enjoy! It would make a great house gift!
On this recommendation alone, I purchased "Summer on a Plate." This is a fantastic book full of mouth-watering recipes that utilize fresh ingredients and simple, clean flavors. Recipes such as a chilled Strawberry Soup use citrus and sour cream to really bring home the wondrous flavors of fresh berries.
I am sorry to say that the book is not as beautiful as its written content. The pages are thin and, honestly, somewhat cheap looking. There is a slim insert of color pictures (which look nice), but I can only imagine how this book would look full of vibrant pictures and crisp pages.
The layout in no way affects the recipes, but I think the recipes deserve better! In fact, I recently spotted this book in a bargain section of the bookstore...which is a crime! It is one of my simplest (and yet most appetizing) cookbook purchases in recent memory.
Don't be fooled by any discount you see...or judge this book by its look. Take a peek at the recipes and you'll see why Anna Pump and "Summer on a Plate" deserve five stars!
Highly recommended to fans of Ina Garten and those who champion fresh ingredients and clean flavors.

Those things don't make it a bad book, just one that's not suitable for my library.
It's a really good book for the right audience, with one exception: the lack of pictures in this day is a serious lacking for a cookbook. We've grown used to having that gloriously styled image of "what the dish is supposed to look like" when it's plated, or served. There are a few (nicely done) pics toward the end, but not enough.
Recommended for most. especially for people who have backyards, or can otherwise use a grill. The recipes are delicious sounding, and fairly simple/easy. Good for summer.
