Six Seasons A New Way with Vegetables PDF-Winner, James Beard Award for Best Book in Vegetable-Focused Cooking
Named a Best Cookbook of the Year by the Wall Street Journal, The Atlantic, Bon Appétit, Food Network Magazine, Every Day with Rachael Ray, USA Today, Seattle Times, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Library Journal, Eater, and more
“Of the many vegetable-focused cookbooks on the market, few espouse the dual goals of starting from square one and of deploying minimal ingredients for maximum enjoyment. Joshua McFadden’s guide excels at both. These are recipes that every last relative around your holiday table would use because they’re umami-rich and can be made on a weeknight.”
—USA Today, 8 Cookbooks for People Who Don’t Know How to Cook
“If you’re finding pantry cooking to mean too many uninspired pots of beans, might I suggest Six Seasons? [It] both highlights a perfectly ripe plant . . . and shows you how to transform slightly less peak-season produce (yes, the cabbage lurking in the back of your fridge right now counts) with heat, spice, acid, and fat.”
“Never before have I seen so many fascinating, delicious, easy recipes in one book. . . . [Six Seasons is] about as close to a perfect cookbook as I have seen . . . a book beginner and seasoned cooks alike will reach for repeatedly.”
Joshua McFadden, chef and owner of renowned trattoria Ava Gene’s in Portland, Oregon, is a vegetable whisperer. After years racking up culinary cred at New York City restaurants like Lupa, Momofuku, and Blue Hill, he managed the trailblazing Four Season Farm in coastal Maine, where he developed an appreciation for every part of the plant and learned to coax the best from vegetables at each stage of their lives.
In Six Seasons, his first book, McFadden channels both farmer and chef, highlighting the evolving attributes of vegetables throughout their growing seasons—an arc from spring to early summer to midsummer to the bursting harvest of late summer, then ebbing into autumn and, finally, the earthy, mellow sweetness of winter. Each chapter begins with recipes featuring raw vegetables at the start of their season. As weeks progress, McFadden turns up the heat—grilling and steaming, then moving on to sautés, pan roasts, braises, and stews. His ingenuity is on display in 225 revelatory recipes that celebrate flavor at its peak.

Whether you have your own vegetable gardens or get a weekly CSA box or patronize a thriving farmers’ market, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of this book. If you would rather eat veggies than meat, you have to have it. I haven’t seen such an exciting and creative vegetable-themed cookbook in a long time. Besides dealing with the vegetables themselves, Joshua McFadden has loaded this book with wonderful vinaigrettes, sauces, and butters. He makes valuable and experienced recommendations of his favorite flavor enhancers, too.
I am so enamored of this book that it sits on the edge of my ottoman where I prop my feet up, and I re-read some part of it daily: It is that time of the year when veggies really come into their own–exciting and varied and so obviously fresh–that I can’t get enough of them. It is so, so satisfying and rewarding to have so many terrific recipes to refer to for the vegetables and herbs and greens that I have at hand, in hand. We do get a CSA half-bushel box each Wednesday, and I always have an assortment of fresh vegetables in our refrigerator bins, with overflow in a cooler on our porch. I also have a thriving herb garden, and a small raised garden of leafy greens. Plus my tomatoes are ripening, and sweet corn is ready in my area. (The corn recipes in this book are great!) So, this cookbook is right up my alley, and it came available at the perfect time.
And, get this: He encourages us to eat our green salads with our hands. Tried it and loved it and will continue to eat salads with my fingers from here on out.
He does an excellent job of training the reader to season properly. He salts, peppers, and dashes vinegars on his fresh greens, then tastes and adjusts. Then he adds olive oil for richness and mellowness. The technique works well for me.
McFadden has a technique that I find invaluable: Dry-grill veggies. After many years of trying, I had finally discontinued grilling vegetables. Period. Didn’t like the taste of most veggies on the grill. McFadden claims that off-flavor is the oil in the marinade or simply the oil that one uses to “grease” whatever vegetables get put on the grill. Solution? Don’t oil them, put them on the grill without adornment, and dress them after you take them off the grate. Simply amazing how well this technique works.
He also is a fan of refrigerator pickles. I am too, and I am always searching for and buying cookbooks that contain new ideas for frig pickles. There are two charts for frig pickles–listing vegetables along with appropriate seasonings to go into a basic brine. There is a longer list of vegetables that go into a cold brine, a short list suited for a hot brine.
I like that he incorporated grains into his veggie dishes, too.
And the idea of six seasons? It’s about time we acknowledge them. Those of us who garden vegetables know in the back of our minds that there are many differences between early and late summer. Those of us down South, (I grow in south-central Texas), can even call out Early Spring and Late Spring, and Early Fall and Late Fall, rather than the three Summer seasons that are called out in this book. But it is good to acknowledge them all: For me, acknowledgement spurs me to plant earlier and more.
Recipes in this book are arranged by season, then alphabetically by main vegetable. There are line drawings in addition to full-color photos of the veggies themselves, how-to photos and finished dishes. The pages are a nice, heavy stock, and the books is a hardback.
My favorite recipe at this point is a fairly simple one: Grilled Carrots, Steak, and Red Onion with Spicy Fish-Sauce Sauce. I could make it all grilling season long. And I don’t need the steak. And I can make it with summer squash, too, but the carrots and onions is a must. And the Spicy Fish-Sauce Sauce comes together in a few minutes of prep work. (I use Red Boat fish sauce as McFadden recommends).
The sliced Hakurei turnips with herbs, yogurt and poppy seeds is almost too awesome looking to eat–but we did, and can’t wait until those turnips come back into season.
How much do I love this book? I am a reviewer of cookbooks. It’s one of my hobbies. And I first received this one as a temporary download from the publisher. I worked with the recipes for quite a while before this book was published a few weeks ago. But, as you can see from the “” tag at the top of this review, I had to have my own copy. And, now that it is in my hot hands, I can say that it’s even better than it was in its preliminary form.”
Google Recipes from Ava Gene’s Restaurant and make them yourself. Fantastic. I make the Carrot and Beet Slaw with Pistachios and Raisins and Celery Salad with Dates, Almonds, and Parmesan the most (and I don’t even like celery much, usually), but they’re all good, and they made such an impression on me that I’ve twice driven from California to Portland to dine in the restaurant.
Once you start following Joshua McFadden’s recipes it will change the way you think about flavor combinations and textures, and in time you will become more inventive yourself.
I waited for this book to be released for YEARS after it was announced, and I wasn’t disappointed (even if the cover is pretty boring visually).
I highly recommend it without reservation. It will get you eating more vegetables, make you a better cook, and change the way you think about cooking and what takes a dish from simply good to memorably good.
After eating more “vegetable forward” (finding ways to add more vegetables, and different kinds, and to INCREASE the amount of vegetables on my plate), largely using this book, I dropped from being fully diabetic back to pre-diabetic levels on my A1C tests. I also find myself craving huge salads. Even just the addition of soaking raisins in vinegar with some garlic for a half hour, then putting the raisins in the salad and using the vinegar to make a vinaigrette (mixed with creme fraiche sometimes), I find I’m hitting the sweet and chewy combination for satisfying meals. If you like a spicy counter note (as demonstrated in many of the recipes here) that’s easy to do too. You’ll find you’re coming up with your own recipes just from absorbing how it’s done here. My favorite this fall is thinly sliced fennel or Napa cabbage mixed with soaked raisins and julienned strips of Fuji apples, salt, pepper, toasted walnuts (chopped), and vinaigrette stirred up with creme fraiche (or mayonnaise, if you prefer).”
