Product Description


"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 look forward to the arrival of spring because it means, after a long winter, that Loaves & Fishes will soon reopen. What a treat it is, in the meanwhile, to have our most delicious recipes in this wonderful book." -- Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder

"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 books is easy to follow. The recipes are clear, easy to make and so far, very good. I can hardly try to make some on the BBQ soon

HASH(0xa2278db0) out of 5 stars Summer on a Plate Aug. 17 2008
By Julie W. Snyder - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Everyone in our family has chosen one and sometimes two recipes out of this book (at the same time)to prepare for dinner parties this summer. Anna Pump has done it again. I have all of her books and this one is right up there.

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!

HASH(0xa222106c) out of 5 stars Beautiful Flavors, Fresh Ingredients July 8 2009
By j.s. - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I found out about Anna Pump and The Loaves and Fishes through Ina Garten (the Barefoot Contessa). Ina dedicated her latest cookbook to Anna and also showcased Anna's marmalade on her cooking show.

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.

HASH(0xa2258d68) out of 5 stars Over 100 gourmet dishes for non-fuss, hot-weather meals Sept. 11 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Summer is a time for lazy weekends and longer days - and cooking should be the same. A catering proprietor provides easy yet unique dishes in SUMMER ON A PLATE: over 100 gourmet dishes for non-fuss, hot-weather meals. From Grilled Beef with Herb Sauce to Warm Tuna Sandwich with Ginger-Lemon Sauce, it's packed with unusual dishes not to be found elsewhere. No color photos - but the easy dishes don't need embellishment to appeal to any cookbook fan or lending library focusing on unique recipe collections.

HASH(0xa2cf181c) out of 5 stars I like it... May 7 2013
By Lyndell VanMatre - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
...but not well enough to keep it. I debated between three & four stars, then decided that four was more appropriate. That is because most of my complaints are unique to me: things like just knowing I won't be cooking from it because most of the recipes are either things I already do or use ingredients we don't care for. Our condo association doesn't allow grilling on balconies. This book is so much about eating outside and grilling.

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.

I was referred to this cookbook on Ina Garten's blog. I live in Florida many months where it's summer all the time and wanted some recipes for this lifestyle. The recipes are incredible. Just last night I made the Shrimp Cakes with Herb Mayonnaise. I cook all the time and this recipes was one of the best I've ever made. They tasted as good as a seafood cake you'd get at a top New England restaurant. I can't wait to try my next recipe.
