Tasting the Seasons Cookbook Review

Disclosure: I received this product for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Do you love to cook with seasonal ingredients? To me, nothing is more fun than going to a farmers market or local farm and getting fresh fruits and vegetables during the harvest season. This is the time of year when you can really get some good deals and make the sort of fall recipes you crave all year long. The problem for me, however, is finding great recipes to use them in. I have some seasonal cookbooks but  many of them require unrealistic ingredients, 0r in all honesty, have recipes that aren’t very appealing. As I was looking for some new cookbooks, I was approached to review a new seasonal cookbook – Tasting the Seasons: Inspired, In-Season Cuisine That’s Easy, Healthy, Fresh, and Fun. After reading a bit about this book online, I couldn’t wait for it to arrive in the mail!

Tasting the Seasons: What is It

Looking for a cookbook that focuses on healthy, seasonal recipes that are realistic for busy cooks like you and me? If so, we think you will love Tasting the Seasons. This cookbook contains 250 recipes and commentary on the recipes created by culinary expert Kerry Dunnington. All the recipes in the book are designed to be made in your home kitchen, and for entertaining friends and family. While the approach of the book promotes eco-friendly, sustainable living, it also is realistic, allowing busy cooks like us the chance to feed our families meals that we are proud to put on the table. Once you have tried some of these delicious recipes you will never go back to high fat, processed food recipes again!

Tasting the Seasons: Overall

Okay everyone, I have to say this may very well be one of the best cookbooks I have tried in awhile. All the recipes are realistic, have easy to follow directions, and the ingredients are made using seasonal foods that are perfect for foodies like me. After going through this cookbook, I can’t wait to get in the kitchen and start cooking. Now all I need is a trip to the local orchard or to send my husband to the grocery for us while I work! Probably the best section in my eyes, however, are the soups. Many of the soups sound absolutely heavenly, and are meals you would expect to find on restaurant menus. Based on our own experience, I am happy to give Tasting the Seasons an A+ rating!

    This cookbook sounds great, as I have been interested in using seasonal fresh ingredients in cooking lately. I’m not a very good cook, so I appreciate a cookbook that is easy to follow and has regular ingredients that are easily found. My only quibble with your review is I wish you had listed at least some of the recipes in the cookbook. But this looks like a worthwhile cookbook to check out. Thank you.

    WOW! You really love This cookbook! It sounds like It has some really terrific recipes! In the Summer, I don’t particularly like to cook when it’s so hot outside! We generally eat light when it’s hot! Now is the time of year I start thinking of more substantial food! I love soups! It sounds like Tasting the Seasons is a Fantastic find! Thanks for sharing your review of this cookbook with all of us! I know I appreciate it, and, when things get better around here, money wise, I am definitely going to look into purchasing this book! Thanks again, Michele 🙂
