Some recipes are dreamed up in the kitchen. Others are dished up from the dirt. For Andrea Bemis, who owns and operates an organic vegetable farm with her husband in Parkdale, Oregon, meals are inspired by the day's harvest. In this stunning cookbook, Andrea shares simple, inventive, and delicious recipes for cooking through the seasons. Welcome to life on Tumbleweed Farm--where the work may be hard, but the stove is always warm.

Andrea Bemis, the creator of the popular farm-to-table blog Dishing Up the Dirt builds on her success with this beautiful, simple, seasonally driven cookbook, featuring more than 100 inventive and delicious whole-foods recipes and dozens of color photographs.

For Andrea Bemis, who owns and runs a six-acre organic farm with her husband outside of Portland, Oregon, dinners are inspired by what is grown in the soil and picked by hand. In Dishing Up the Dirt, Andrea offers 100 authentic farm-to-table recipes, arranged by season, including:

Spring: Honey Roasted Strawberry Muffins, Lamb Lettuce Wraps with Mint Yogurt Sauce, Spring Harvest Pizza with Mint & Pea Pesto, Kohlrabi and Chickpea Salad

Summer: Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Biscuits, Roasted Ratatouille Toast, Kohlrabi Fritters with Garlic Herb Cashew Cream Sauce, Farmers Market Burgers with Mustard Greens Pesto

Fall: Farm Girl Veggie Bowls, Butternut Molasses Muffins, Early Autumn Moroccan Stew, Collard Green Slaw with Bacon Gremolata

Winter: Rutabaga Home Fries with Smokey Cashew Sauce, Hoisin Glazed Brussels Sprouts, Country Girl Old Fashioned Cocktails, Tumbleweed Farm Winter Panzanella

Andrea's recipes focus on using whole, locally-sourced foods--incorporating the philosophy of eating as close to the land as possible. While many recipes are naturally gluten-free, dairy-free, or vegetarian, many others include elemental ingredients like bread, cheese, eggs, meat, and sweeteners, which are incorporated in new and inventive ways.

In short essays throughout the book, Andrea also presents an honest glimpse of life on Tumbleweed Farm--the real life of a farmer, not the shabby-chic fantasy often portrayed--offering fascinating and frequently entertaining details about where the food on our dinner tables comes from. With stunning food photography as well as intimate portraits of farm life, Dishing Up the Dirt allows anyone to be a seasonal foodie and an armchair farmer.

Andrea Bemis is the writer, recipe developer, and photographer behind Her recipes and Tumbleweed Farm have been featured in print and online publications, including the New York TimesThe KitchnWell and Good NYCEatingWell, and Epicurious. She lives in Oregon.

"Andrea's approach to food is honest, real, and down-to-earth. Her descriptions of life on the farm are beautifully timeless, while her recipes breathe new life into the idea of cooking dinner after a long, hard day's work. Dishing Up the Dirt is packed full of flavorful dishes that are not the least bit fussy." -- Dana Shultz, author of Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-Based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes

"Reading this book makes me yearn for the joy of cooking vegetables right out of the garden and warming up by a woodstove in winter. Andrea's recipes are refreshingly uncomplicated, delicious, and a wonderful way to celebrate the seasons." --Amy Chaplin, James Beard Award winning author ofAt Home in the Whole Food Kitchen: Celebrating the Art of Eating Well
