Author Joanne Neft and chef Laura Kenny have created another Placer County cookbook, scheduled to be launched April 28 in Auburn.

“The Art of Real Food” features more than 250 dishes along with 35 illustrations painted by Paula Amerine. The food is presented on more than 70 serving dishes created by Auburn sculptor Anthony Maki Gill, all captured by photographer Keith Sutter. Each recipe uses local ingredients from farmers markets to produce healthy dishes.

The Foothill Farmers Market takes place in Auburn from 8 a.m. to noon Saturdays in the Old Courthouse parking lot. For more information, visit
