Karen Evenden, the author of the best-selling travel memoir and cookbook, A Taste of Croatia has done it again.
This time she invites readers to explore Southern California's unique Ojai Valley.

The colorful and picturesque cover of Ojai’s Table hides more than a simple collection of recipes.
Flip through the pages and you’ll soon discover the magic of this rural Southern California village that has, for more than a century,
 been a magnet for educators, artists, spiritualists and farmers. Through colorful essays, informative head notes,
enlightening sidebars and illuminating quotes the author pays homage to a wonderful hamlet that is situated in a glorious east-west valley.
It is a beautiful celebration of the people who inhabit the Ojai Valley and the crops that come to her tables.

But don’t let the stories totally distract you. First and foremost, Ojai’s Table is a cookbook. There are more than 125 original recipes
each featuring locally grown Mediterranean ingredients like avocados, citrus, olive oil, walnuts, persimmons, lavender, tomatoes, pomegranates, zucchini
-all the desirable and necessary makings for a healthy Mediterranean diet. And be on the lookout for some unexpected uses for those ingredients.

So if you are a cook or a gardener or if you dream of being a cook or gardener, pick up a copy of Ojai’s Table, find a comfy chair and enjoy a rich collection of recipes,
the intriguing snippets of Southern California history, the generous splashes of local color and the first-hand stories about farming life.

A MASTER WEAVERReview by Emily
“Karen’s new book weaves the story of how two wonderful people stumbled upon Ojai, embraced the land, people, and of course the ingredients of our valley. Karen is a must-invite to any Ojai potluck and we are blessed to be able to have her Ojai recipes in this new book. As you read through the recipes your mouth will water, you will be inspired in the kitchen and it just may get you thinking about sourcing some new edibles from Ojai’s farms.”
