White Turnip Soup
By all means, give these creamy white turnip orbs (some varieties come with a pretty purple blush) a try. Pulled fresh from the ground, an increasing army of turnip hybrids available at farmers markets are light years away from the pungent, tough, waxy, long-stored turnips that formerly gave turnips an unglamorous reputation.This soup is delicately feminine, ever so elegant and one of my personal favorites. The salty bite of prosciutto nicely counters the sweetness of the onions and turnips. Save the turnip greens for a quick sauté in olive oil with a bit of garlic and serve it alongside.Adapted from "Southern Farmers Market Cookbook" by Holly Herrick.

Braised Turnips and Carrots
I can probably count on one hand the number of times I've eaten turnips. They're so often overlooked, because most people don't know how to cook these ruddy little root vegetables which are high in vitamin C. Then I had braised turnips at Locanda in San Francisco and I was sold on the idea that a turnip could taste delicious. And after creating this recipe, I can safely say that I have kindled a new love of turnips in our home. Click here to see Comfort Food Alternatives.

Holiday Turnip Mash
By
This is an easy way to add a new twist to your mashed potatoes. Turnips add an interesting spicy flavor and the carrots add some nice color and a bit of sweetness. You can make this in advance and place in a covered casserole dish, keeping it in a warm oven at about 200 degrees.

Pear, Turnip, and Pecorino Pepato Salad
Quick to prepare and delicious, this versatile little salad can be served as a starter, a light lunch, or a cheese course/dessert. The shaved pecorino pepato, a delicious hard Italian cheese studded with black peppercorns, is my way of seasoning the salad — it adds sharpness, salt, and pepper all at once. Make sure you use baby turnips, which can be eaten raw. — Greg Marchand, Frenchie Click Here to See More Pear Recipes

The Accidental Locavore loves turnip greens! Who knew? They were in my first farm box of the season and they were delicious. How did they get so good? Well, fresh from the farm is always good and for once, no bacon was used in the making of this dish. Not to worry, pork products still made an appearance in the form of andouille from Uphill Farm near us upstate (also at the Union Square Greenmarket). To prep the greens, stem them like spinach and soak in cold water to get rid of the sand, rinse and let dry. This is an easy dish and will serve 2 as a main course. Feel free to substitute any sausage you like, Italian would work fine.

Don’t pay attention to the temperature! Grilling is the perfect year-round activity, especially when using a robust brew like Samuel Adams Boston Lager that has a rich malt and roast character; it’s the perfect beer to emphasize the wonderful flavors the food gets from being grilled. The balance between the malt and the hops and moderate alcohol level make it a flavorful and complex brew that is perfect for pairing with all kinds of food.  Experiment!  Enjoy!!

This dish from Chef Scott Campbell of New Leaf Restaurant & Bar uses chocolate both in the spice mixture used to season the duck, and also in the flavorful jus that finishes the dish. It is one of the most popular dishes on the dinner menu, and is good to serve on Valentine's Day.

Apples and pork is an obvious combination, but this recipe combines the two in an entirely new way, by braising a tender loin of pork in cider and fresh apples. It's then shredded and topped with a ginger-based salsa in a mini corn tortilla.

Barley and Roasted Vegetable Pilaf
Barley is often the overlooked grain, and it's not just for making beer. It's a satisfyingly chewy grain with a neutral taste that takes on surrounding flavors easily. Here, the roasted vegetables liven up fiber-rich barley.
