Review

--"My favorite cookbook of the year...Not only is it beautiful enough to be a coffee table book, it's is also jam packed with the most brilliant, original, simple recipes that you will make you want to get into the kitchen immediately." Daily Meal, UK

About the Author

Todd Porter and Diane Cu are professional food photographers and stylists and publish the acclaimed food, recipe, and lifestyle blog WhiteonRiceCouple.com. They are also avid gardeners, busy home cooks and encourage others to share meals with those they love. The popularity of their blog stems from their shared stories of life and food that connect us all. Beyond the blog, their professional work includes clients such as Whole Foods, Williams-Sonoma, Thermador, KitchenAid, Food & Wine Magazine, and the Cooking Channel. They are also photography instructors, teach speciality cooking classes and are sought-after speakers at industry conferences. Todd and Diane have been featured in Sunset magazine, Food & Wine Magazine, Los Angeles Times and on the Cooking Channel.  

"This book walks a direct line of inspiration from Todd and Diane's garden to a beautiful collection of produce-forward recipes. It captures the vitality of simply prepared, seasonal ingredients (whether you grow them or buy them), and their enthusiasm is infectious."
-- Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day

"Brillat-Savarin famously wrote, 'Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are.' The California corollary to this would be 'Tell me what you grow and I'll tell you what you eat.' For so many of us, our kitchens are inextricably linked to our gardens and nobody has captured this union better than Todd Porter and Diane Cu in their perfectly named new book Bountiful."
-- Russ Parsons, food editor for the Los Angeles Times

"There has never been a book more aptly named than Bountiful. Bursting at the seams with lush, inviting photographs and inspired seasonal recipes, this is a cookbook you'll turn to over and over, from summer to winter and back again. The only problem, as far as I can see, is where to start: the savory butternut squash crumble, the honeydew salad with riesling and mint, or maybe the blood orange bars with a brown butter crust?"
-- Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life

Bountiful celebrates the amazing garden Diane Cu and Todd Porter tend where they live in Southern California. The book is organized by type of vegetable, fruit, herb, etc. This approach helps the home cook quickly pick the dishes to make according to what's in season. I also found it straightforward to plan meals, pairing dishes according to what I had on my counter or had picked up at the farmers market.

I've been cooking from Bountiful for the last few weeks and the food is delightful. The dishes are easy to prepare, unfussy and full of flavor. The roasted pluots are a great example -- roast them in the oven with a little brown sugar and balsamic vinegar and out come the naturally sweet flavors of late-in-the-season pluots. The thyme that's added to the pan infuses the pluots with an earthy essence that adds dimension. Deceptively simple to make, but complex in flavor.

One of our favorites is the elegant to look at, but easy-to-make Fig and Gorgonzola Pillows. My family loved the combination of savory cooked onions, salty prosciutto, luscious sweet figs and pungent gorgonzola, which sit on top of a buttery, puff pastry base. While Todd and Diane include a puff pastry recipe in the book, store-bought high-quality puff pastry works very well. The pastries are impressive to look at, and the flavors work together beautifully.

We also really enjoyed the Spinach and Bacon Salad with Avocado Vinaigrette. I made it last weekend as a side salad, but with that special dressing (it includes a tiny bit of soy sauce that really adds depth), I expect it be in rotation throughout the year. I'll add grilled chicken or salmon to make it a main rather than a side salad, too.

One sweet recipe on my short list is great example of refreshing a classic.

Format: Hardcover
Describing the ethos, thought, beauty, and artistic simplicity (which is, truly, a complex thing to achieve) within this book is almost too difficult for any writer to do. Carmine-hued tomatoes laced in galettes, generous pitchers of melon sangria, taut spring rolls bursting from their translucent rice paper bodices. All of it stunning. A halcyon collection of recipes and images of friends, food, and two adorable dogs. This cookbook isn't just a cookbook, but a lovely lifestyle guide to those who want to eat better, live better, and become a more efficient and sustainable gardener.

The book is divided into sections based of vegetable/fruit type such as Herbs & Leafy Greens, Roots & Bulbs, and Stone Fruits. It makes it an easy book to navigate for whatever the season is. For me, I love this sort of compendium that rings of Nigel Slater's most recent work. Clear, concise, and in no way fussy. In addition, recipes aren't abstract or filled with hard to find ingredients. Recipes work, are clear, and affordable (especially if you're an avid gardener). The recipes find inspiration from Southern California, Western ranches, Vietnam and more to create a unique collection of stories. For those who need pictures, the book is packed with them; all striking and evocative.

All and all, a winning cookbook and a must have.

Living in Arizona, the growing season here is closer to Southern California than to other places in the country. I love that much of the book's categories are specific vegetables/fruits so that I can go to that section of the book instead of the more typical seasons (spring, summer, fall, winter) or calendar months formats as these often have no bearing on what I have available here in Phoenix - and I do mean locally, not shipped from some remote place.

I appreciate the nod to Asia in use of the ingredients in the recipe too. It gives the recipes a nice tweak on the more typical ways of sauteing, roasting, and dressing salads, etc.

I have been using the book for only a few weeks now. I only wish it came out earlier in the year when we had the heirloom tomatoes and corn available!

I rarely write reviews, but this cookbook is the most well organized I have seen in a while. Not only is it categorized by vegetable, which is very helpful when you are at the farmer's market and something catches your eye, but also the recipes are very straightforward and easy to follow, requiring mostly ingredients you already have on hand.

This cookbook is not only beautiful to look at but the recipes are amazing! I've made 5 recipes so far and I honestly think I'd like to make everything in it! It's well written and I haven't had to modify or tweak any recipe so far. It's is also stunning to look at - I have it on my counter top in my recipe holder and I get compliments on it all the time!

I received this book compliments of Abrams through The Little Kitchen.
Luscious.
It is tempting to leave it at that. This book is luscious in all respects. Todd Porter and Diane Cu exhibit care and thoughtfulness in the photography, the recipes and the writing. Although not oversized it can be described as a coffee table book with useful recipes. From condiments to cookies to cocktails, from wonderfully simple - Sauteed Celery and Shrimp - to the unexpected - Sweet Potato and Chocolate Squares the recipes are fresh and realistic.
They introduce themselves and tell some about their journey to becoming White on Rice Couple and making this cookbook . That sets the mood of the book which has a very pleasant unity. They realize not everyone has the room to grow lots of fruits and vegetables. They began with some potted plants on a balcony so urge you to at least grow some herbs and find a source of good fresh vegetables. It is hard to imagine that looking at the food in this book wouldn't be enough to make you want to head to the nearest farmers market. The only downside is that the book is so gorgeous I don't want to take it into my kitchen.
