Kevin West - Saving the Season


Saving the Season: A Cook's Guide to Home Canning, Pickling, and Preserving ($35.00) is a stylish, richly illustrated, practical guide for home cooks and preserving enthusiasts, and the first cookbook from journalist Kevin West, author of the popular blog www.savingtheseason.com.

Incorporating classic favorites and new flavors, West gives us more than one hundred recipes, organized by season, for sweet preserves and savory pickles; easy-to-can vegetables and fruits; condiments such as relishes, chutneys, and salsas; and cordials, candies, and cocktails. Interspersed with the recipes are chronicles of West's travels and the history of American preserving traditions from California to New Mexico to Long Island. A witty and erudite culinary companion, West makes a rich and entertaining story of the introductions to the recipes.  Also included is a primer on preserving techniques that addresses issues of food safety and nutrition.

Kevin West is from rural Blount County in eastern Tennessee. He attended Deep Springs, an experimental college in the White Mountains of California, and Sewanee: The University of the South. For 13 years he was on staff at W magazine, with postings in New York, Paris, and Los Angeles, where he was West Coast editor and where he still lives. He runs the blog www.savingtheseason.com; writes about food, culture, and travel; and produces a retail collection of jams and marmalades.
