Weekly Book Special: July 20th-July 26th

July is National Blueberry Month, a celebration of blueberries — the delicious native American fruit that’s low in calories and sodium, but rich in fiber. This week’s book special is a blueberry cookbook:

True Blueberry:
Recipes for Soups, Salads, Desserts and More

Written by Linda Dannenberg, Photography by Zeva Oelbaum
Hardcover, 128 pages, List Price: $22.00, OUR PRICE: $5.95
True Blueberry

Blueberries have become a favorite ingredient not just for breakfast and dessert but for dishes at every meal. Blueberries are known to help fight cancer and diabetes, aid in lowering cholesterol, and combat aging.

This book is a celebration of the fruit prized for its distinctive color and delicate, sweet flavor. It highlights the health benefits of blueberries, and presents 80 fresh, innovative and appealing recipes, illustrated with more than a dozen beautiful full-color photographs.

Featured are creations such as Lemon-Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry-Peach Compote; Fennel, Arugula, Orange, and Blueberry Salad; and Blueberry Martinis.

The recipes are gathered from home cooks and renowned chefs, including Debra Ponzek and Alain Ducasse, as well as restaurants such as Moody’s Diner in Maine.

Our favorite recipe is for the delicious summer treat of blueberry ice cream (click to enlarge):

“Dannenberg provides plenty of variety in her cookbook,” writes Publisher’s Weekly in a review. “Offerings in the soup and salad section include Lobster Salad with Blueberry-Beet Sauce and Blueberry–Sour Cream Dressing with Trio of Bitter Greens Salad. Appetizers and main courses include unexpected fare such as King Salmon Tartare with Blueberries and Roast Stuffed Turkey Breast with Red Wine–Blueberry Sauce. Desserts range from traditional pies to Blueberry Potato Cake with Glazed Blueberry Sauce.”

Victoria Wesseler, a food writer and master gardener, writes on the Going Local blog about local food: “In a handy place on my kitchen counter is [this] wonderful cookbook. Recipes include blueberry-beet borscht, blueberry steak sauce, and, my favorite of the moment, blueberry vodka.”

This book is discounted only through August 2nd. Purchase it for $5.95 (list price $22.00):
