NorthJersey.com of Hackensack NJ has a short piece on a new cookbook. The original appeared in the Clifton weekly.

I have no experience with the book or the series in which it fits (32 previous books) but selling 15,000 book in 14 minutes on QVC sounds like a huge accomplishment.

This new cookbook contains recipes that feature fruits and vegetables as the main ingredients and celebrates that time of year when the tomatoes are red, ripe and juicy, the okra is tender, the butter beans are ready to be shelled, the corn is shucked, the strawberries perfect and the cucumbers are tender and sweet.

The recipes for this new cookbook were selected from the database of more than 25,000 award-winning recipes included in Quail Ridge Press' nationally acclaimed Best of the Best State Cookbook Series. (This Series has sold over 3.5 million copies.)

These 390 "Recipe Hall of Fame" recipes selected are considered the best of the Best of the Best state cookbook series! Included among the recipes are a variety of dishes ranging from appetizers to desserts. Also included in the cookbook are quips that provide information about the produce used to create these delectable dishes.

This cookbook was compiled and edited by Gwen McKee, Barbara Moseley and Terresa Ray, the ladies who have produced over a hundred cookbooks over the past 32 years.

The "Fresh from the Farmers Market Cookbook" was initially offered exclusively on the national shopping television channel, QVC, where the first printing of 15,000 copies sold out in less than 14 minutes. The cookbook will be available to the public at large in September and will be available at bookstores, kitchen and gift shops, farmers markets, and directly from the publisher by calling 800-343-1583.

Fresh from the Farmers Market

“It must be remembered that there is nothing more difficult to plan, more doubtful of success, nor more dangerous to manage than a new system. For the initiator has the enmity of all who would profit by the preservation of the old institution and merely lukewarm defenders in those who gain by the new ones. ”

Niccolò Machiavelli

I'm sure they're very nice ladies.
