Introducing the Apple Lover’s Cookbook

Like many of your spa clients, one of my favorite fall activities is apple picking. Each autumn, my husband, my dog, Winston, and I head to the orchards and come home with a trunk full of apples. Unfortunately, we also tend to buy way too many and find ourselves at a loss for what to do with them. This year, I don’t think we’ll have that problem, thanks to The Apple Lover’s Cookbook (W. W. Norton & Company; 2011; $29.95 hardcover) by Amy Traverso, which features 100 delicious and easy-to-follow recipes, from appetizers to desserts to beverages. The cookbook includes a fascinating history of the apple and offers cooking tips, a list of American apple festivals, a guide to apple products, the best method for peeling and coring an apple, and tips for pairing cheeses and hard ciders.  In short, this book is a veritable apple encyclopedia, and I think it could be an excellent fall retail option for your spa.
