Cookbooks to showcase summer produce

Faced with a choice between updating a beach wardrobe or my cache of cookbooks suited to warm weather, I’ll go with the latter every time. Waves of spring and summer ingredients ebb and flow with such urgent appeal that it’s all too easy to celebrate them simply, and mostly unadorned. But an innovative recipe that involves, say, blueberries will work its way into my gray matter – the result of which is that twice the usual amount comes home from the farmers market, or half of what’s on hand is held in reserve.
