Jewels From My Grove: Persimmons, Kumquats & Blood Oranges — Reflections & Recipes

25.95

Helene Beck’s Jewels From My Grove is the culmination of more than 30 years she and her husband, Robert, lovingly spent restoring an ailing tract of farmland. Their vision and passion bore fruit — a wonderfully healthy sustainable organic citrus grove — and this cookbook is Helene’s love letter to her three favorite orange-hued jewels — persimmons, kumquats, and blood oranges. In addition to beautiful grove and food photography, you’ll fi nd recipes for some of Helene’s most cherished citrus-centric dishes that are both easy and challenging, savory and sweet, all wrapped in a story that is compelling and heart-warming.

PRAISE FOR JEWELS FROM MY GROVE

“I have been lucky enough to spend time with Helene Beck, wandering her stunning gardens, exploring the acres of vigorous citrus groves, perusing her massive library of cookbooks, roasting and simmering in her kitchen, and, most memorably, feasting at her table. She made a Fuyu Persimmon and Blood Orange Roulade with Candied Orange Filling (Page 47!) that I will never forget. I cut into citrus and tropical fruits I’d never had before, and my horizons broadened. Visiting Beck Grove was one of the great joys of my life. If you can’t make it there, you can still taste Helene’s passion through the beautifully crafted recipes in this book.”
