"The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a
Healthy Planet is classified as a cookbook, and, indeed, it is.
It doesn't take long to discover, however, that, in addition to
recipes for delicious sounding dishes like Butternut, White Bean
and Chard Soup or Mussels Provencal, the book is a treasure trove
of information about organic farming, environmental concerns, food
production, environmentally responsible living and other important
topics that affect the Earth and the food we eat. The book is fun
to read; offers lots of good tips and advice; and serves as a
wake-up call regarding the significance of how our food is
produced, processed, packaged and transported."
- Susan Shelly, The Reading Eagle
"It's packed with family-tested recipes, time- and energy-saving tips, written with a "save the planet" message that is more heartfelt than heavy-handed."
- Kristen Browning-Blas, The Denver Post
"The book's core is sharing ecological information and encouraging readers to change the world with what they buy and serve on their family table. She kneaded basic cooking info with 250 palate-pleasing recipes that protect the environment."
- Janice Denham, YourJournal.Com
"Co-founder of Earthbound Farm, one of the country's largest organic food suppliers, Goodman knows about cooking with a conscience. Filled with 250 healthy and eco-friendly recipes, this new cookbook also helps solve common problems for the modern cook, like choosing between farmed and wild fish and decoding food labels."
- Barbara Fairchild, Bon Appetit
"...The Earthbound Cook should be a kitchen staple for anyone passionate about good, fresh food, and who believes that what we choose to eat is a powerful way to take eco-responsibility."
