Farm-to-table dining may be trendy elsewhere, but it’s a way of life in Kansas. In The New Kansas Cookbook: Rural Roots, Modern Table, husband and wife Frank and Jayni Carey offer a taste of that fare – 220 well-tested recipes – and insight into the innovative foodways from whence they came.
 
In a discussion of the book, the Careys explore how a fusion of fresh ingredients from farmers markets, fresh ideas, and old-fashioned Kansas know-how has created a dynamic 21st-century food scene in the state. Beyond the recipes, they introduce you to those who enjoy the fruits of their own labors, growing the best asparagus and raising grass-fed beef.
 
Both of the Careys are award-winning cooks, and Jayni Carey hosts a cooking show on WOW-TV in Lawrence, Kansas.
