Food journalist Dalia Colón is your guide to discovering flavorful dishes that showcase Florida’s bounty of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and grains.

Colón inspires readers to try new twists on classic recipes such as her Spanakopita, a satisfying entrée that pays homage to the Greek restaurants of Tarpon Springs; her sweet-and-spicy Game Day Buffalo Cauliflower that will win over any potluck party; and her Chocolate-Dipped Avocado Paletas that combine creamy avocado, zesty lime, and sweet dark chocolate for a refreshing treat in the summer heat. Colón’s recipes are accompanied by 12 essays that offer the stories behind some of Florida’s most cherished food traditions.

Topics include the origins of the Florida Strawberry Festival, the rise and decline of Florida’s citrus industry, the importance of corn for Florida’s First Peoples, and more.

Crafted for home cooks seeking to lean into a plant-based lifestyle, this cookbook includes tips on how to plan meals around seasonal fruits and vegetables, using local farmers markets for fresh produce, and exploring the cuisines of different cultures.

Colorfully illustrated with simple step-by-step instructions, this book will take you on a delectable journey through the many ways that vegetarian and vegan foods are woven into Florida’s history and culture.
