Fresh & Honest is centered around Davis s belief in sustainable dining and the use of local, farm-fresh foods. The 218-page, full color cookbook was coauthored by Alexandra Hall, and is energized by the spectacular photography of recipes, farms, and coastlines by Heath Robbins. Sidebars scattered throughout the book highlight New England farmers and purveyors, bringing the story of New England cuisine to life. And, of course, Davis s recipes are tantalizing. Home chefs will discover dishes such as Roasted Beet Salad with Chevre, Arugula, and Blood Orange Vinaigrette; Butternut Squash Pie; Smoked Scallop Chowder; Grit Cakes with Mushrooms; Cornmeal-Crusted Monkfish Sandwich; Cider Braised Pork; Blue Cheese Potatoes au Gratin; and Baked Stuffed Apples.
