The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet


The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cookbook with a conscience, from an author who knows the world of responsible eating as well as anyone. Is cage-free the same as free-range? Is grass-fed worth the price? Whats better: farmed salmon or wild? Organic salad thats been shipped across the country, or local salad grown with pesticides? To nuke leftovers in the microwave or crank up the oven? Myra Goodman—co-owner of Earthbound Farm, the countrys largest producer of organic produce and other products, inspiration behind the Earthbound Farmstand Café, and author of Food to Live By—now brings both sides of the dinner dilemma together by showing us what to shop for, and how to cook it.

The Earthbound Cook turns dilemma into joy—in full-color. It pairs 250 sumptuous recipes with all the information cooks need to make greener, smarter choices. Here is Pork Chile Verde, Beef Tenderloin with Brandy Mushroom Sauce, Chicken Puttanesca—plus how to make the most eco-friendly meat choices and how to decode the labels on poultry and eggs. Vegetarian entrees such as Roasted Cauliflower Tart and Rigatoni with Eggplant and Buffalo Mozzarella for that one day a week we should abstain from meat. Salads (Escarole with Walnuts, Dates, and Bacon, Farro Salad with Edamame and Arugula) and sides (Carrot Risotto) and all the facts about the benefits of eating organically. And fish of course—Coconut-Crusted Salmon, and why to choose wild whenever possible.

No sacrifices here—doing the right thing has never looked, sounded, or tasted better. Or been easier. 

About the Author

Myra Goodman, along with her husband Drew, founded Earthbound Farm on a 2½-acre backyard garden in 1984. In 1986, Earthbound Farm became the first company to successfully launch packaged salads for retail sale, and it is credited with popularizing spring mix salads nationwide, which is now the biggest segment of the packaged salad category. Today, Earthbound Farm is the largest grower of organic produce in North America, with 150 farmers growing organic produce on more than 35,000 acres. In 2010 alone, this will avoid the use of more than 11 million pounds of conventional agricultural chemicals. In addition to numerous corporate awards, Myra and Drew were honored with Global Green USA's Corporate Environmental Leadership Award in 2003; in 2008, they received the Organic Trade Association's Organic Leadership Award.

Myra has taken her passion for organic food from the farm into the kitchen by showcasing delicious recipes in two cookbooks — Food to Live By: The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook (Workman Publishing, 2006) and The Earthbound Cook: Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet (Workman, 2010). Myra is also a regular contributor to Bon Appetit magazine.
