We have a lot of talent here in Arkansas… and one of those great talented folks happens to be P. Allen Smith. He has managed to become a guru of the garden and a master of the house, all in one.

Late last year Smith’s Seasonal Recipes from the Garden came out… a very pretty book with great photography to boot. One thing I really appreciate about it is the way recipes are laid out. They’re sectioned off not only by the type of recipe but also by the season — spring, summer, fall and winter. There’s a nice clarity to the way the recipes are compiled — each with an explanation or story, told in a simple but informative style.

You can preview a lot of the cookbook through Amazon. And if you’re interested, there’s a great recipe for Buttermilk Pecan Pie from the cookbook, shared on the jump.
