Cooking with What You’ve Got
Tod Davies, author of the Jam Today cookbook/memoir series, and Sarah Lemon, food writer for the Medford Mail Tribune, team up for one of their favorite sports: cooking with what they’ve got.

But also: support for cooks everywhere in making delicious meals from what we have, and what we like.
