Food to Live By - The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook
A bounty of delicious recipes, health information, and food choice tips from the founder of the organic farm that “is changing the way America eats” (People).
Not only has Myra Goodman been growing organic food for over twenty years on Earthbound Farm (founded with her husband, Drew), she has been cooking with it, too. In Food to Live By she combines her twin food passions, serving up hundreds of recipes, ideas, shopping and cooking tips, health notes, and more. Illustrating the book are full-color photographs throughout that bring readers right into the breathtaking California sunshine.
This is perfect cooking for friends and family, packed with irresistible dishes for weeknight dinners and casual entertaining, festive breakfasts and fall picnics. Recipes are all about the ingredients and their intrinsic qualities, not fancy techniques or time-consuming steps. Food to Live By also includes a wealth of information about organic farming and how to make the wisest food choices; there are full-color field guides—to gourmet greens, apples, heirloom tomatoes, winter squash—and farm fresh ingredient guides to sorrel, corn, melons, avocados, organic poultry, asparagus, artichokes, ginger, and more, featuring what to look for, plus care and handling. The book is a boon to food lovers.
