Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Winner of the 2014 IACP Cookbook Award in the category of "Food Matters." The next stage in the food revolution — a radical way to select fruits and vegetables and reclaim the flavor and nutrients we've lost. Ever since farmers first planted seeds 10,000 years ago, humans have been destroying the nutritional value of their fruits and vegetables. Unwittingly, we've been selecting plants that are high in starch and sugar and low in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants for more than 400 generations. Eating on the Wild Side reveals the solution — choosing modern varieties that approach the nutritional content of wild plants but that also please the modern palate. Jo Robinson explains that many of these newly identified varieties can be found in supermarkets and farmer's market, and introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of preparation that enhance their flavor and nutrition. Based on years of scientific research and filled with food history and practical advice, Eating on the Wild Side will forever change the way we think about food.

Review:

"The next Omnivore's Dilemma." Epicurious.com

Review:

"Phenomenal....The cure for what ails us is right here, and it's delicious." Dan Barber, chef and owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns

Review:

"Because recent studies have taught us that we should be getting our beta carotene and other health-builders not from pills but from well-grown food, this book is just what gardeners and cooks need." The Washington Post

Review:

"If the organic movement needs a Joan of Arc I would surely nominate Jo Robinson. Only Michael Pollan would come close to her superbly researched work." Bill Kurtis, Chairman and Founder, Tallgrass Beef Company
