Deborah Madison at Boggy Creek Farm

I was thumbing through the Chronicle on Friday and saw that Deborah Madison was going to be in Austin to sign her new book, Seasonal Fruit Desserts. I was over the moon! I have been cooking from Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone forever, and it is my FAVORITE cookbook. Unparalleled. Also, it was at Boggy Creek Farm, which is always a treat. I picked up some sorrel and, at Ms. Madison’s suggestion, some chervil.

She signed her new book for me and was kind enough to pose for a photo with me before she signed my book. I am really looking forward to trying recipes from the new book! It looks just as amazing as her other cookbooks. She has a talent for capturing seasonal, fresh flavors in unfussy recipes.

We also poked around at the farm, which is full of flowers right now.

And, of course, chickens.

And other things waiting to happen.

    Lovely post. I grow sorrel in my garden and love it on sandwiches:) Nice shot of the poppy head.
