“Agricola’s recipes are simple, robust, and full of life—and celebrate farm and farmer.”
Next time you’re at the restaurant, pick up a copy of Agricola Cookbook, our collection of 100 farm-to-table recipes, accompanied by the luminous photography of Guy Ambrosino.
Like Agricola itself, the cookbook is a love letter to our home state of New Jersey, with each page influenced by local products and produce. It also reveals the secrets behind some of our most memorable dishes.
Agricola Cookbook includes detailed “From the Farmer” notes of the restaurant’s nearby Great Road Farm, explaining how growing and storage conditions affect the distinctive flavors of seasonal produce. The book introduces noteworthy producers such as Terhune Orchards, as well as Zone 7, the local farm-to-kitchen distribution service that connects farms to community eateries like ours. The chapter on “Pickles, Preserves, and Kitchen Basics” serves as a comprehensive guide to the brilliant jars of produce that fill a wall in our restaurant.
Agricola Cookbook was published by Burgess Lea Press in New Hope, Pennsylvania. In an innovative charitable model, 100 percent of the publisher’s after-tax profits on every book are donated to a food-related beneficiary–in our case Edible Schoolyard Project, the Berkeley, California-based K-12 teaching institution established by Alice Waters that has inspired national and international programs on food education.
Agricola Cookbook is available for $30 from the restaurant, your local bookstore, or online booksellers. It makes a great gift for just about anyone.
