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.
