Firm, ripe tomatoes. Golden corn. Fragrant basil. Juicy peaches. Nothing
compares with the bounty of summer when colors, flavors, and aromas are
at their peak and cooking is easier than ever. Fresh, ripe produce is
so tasty and perfect on its own that creating a terrific summer meal can
be stress-free, delicious, and fun.

In Summer Gatherings, award-winning cooking instructor Rick Rodgers has
compiled his favorite simple summer recipes that make the most of the
season’s flavors. Purposely casual, stripped to their essentials, these
recipes are uncomplicated by elaborate sauces or fussy garnishes,
focusing instead on the fruits and vegetables that make summer cooking
what it is. With Watermelon, Tomato, and Mint Salad to Fried Stuffed
Zucchini Blossoms; Soft Shell Crab BLT Sandwiches; Chocolate Cherry
Parfaits; Grilled Chicken with White Rosemary Barbecue Sauce; Risotto
with Tomatoes, Basil, and Ricotta Salata; and Cantaloupe Ice Pops,
Rodgers will help you take full advantage of summer’s bounty.

From family cookouts to neighborhood block parties, from picnics on the
lawn to picnics at the beach, the appetizing recipes and photographs in
Summer Gatherings are guaranteed to satisfy and inspire all season long.
