By Wendy Hammond VINE VOICE on January 22, 2011
Format: Hardcover
When the publisher of Green Market Baking Book: 100 Delicious Recipes for Naturally Sweet & Savory Treats asked if I'd be willing to review their book, I was super excited. I've been on sort of a baking kick lately and was looking for something seasonal, and that used mainly natural sugars. I found it!

Laura Martin has curated over 100 recipes from some of the best chefs and bakers in the slow food movement. Many are gluten or dairy free (or she explains how you can use that option).
The introductory chapters are quite informative and includes
- why eat local, seasonal, organic, and natural
- description and explanation of ingredients
- pantry list
- substitution guidelines for flours and sugars

The recipes themselves are divided into spring, summer, fall, and winter and includes an introduction on choosing produce. Unfortunately, with baking a lot of the recipes don't quite fit into those categories, so I think it could have been organized in a more helpful manner. Especially since at least in Michigan the seasons are so short that fruits (especially berries) are frozen for baking later anyway.

I found myself marking several of the recipes to try, and did make Energy Bars, Blueberry and Corn Skillet Bread, and Honey Wheat Bread. All of them turned out, although somehow the oven temp was omitted in the Honey Wheat Bread recipe. I figured it out by checking other bread recipes to see what temps those were baked at.

Concluding the book are chapters on
- preserving the harvest
- growing your own
- sample menus
- contributor biographies

which were nice but not necessary as the star really is the recipes. Oh, and the index is nice and thorough-something I've come to appreciate as I've added to my cookbook collection.
If you're looking for an everyday sort of baking book, this is one to consider.

I'm very conscious of what and how I eat, but most cookbooks of this type read as boring nutritional primers. Finally a bok about fine cooking and dining that validates my choices. I really love the emphasis on quality ingredients, and appreciate the wealth of knowledge Ms. Martin has brought together. The book itself is a work of art, and makes a wonderful gift (I gave copies to several people this holiday season). Highly recommended for the discriminating and intelligent palate.

This book is filled recipes simple to make, yet delectable to the palate. It is a visually beautiful book, with an easy to read format. It encourages and informs the reader to shop locally and seasonally. I appreciate the introduction to alternative flours and sweeteners: truly an excellent guide to start altering other recipes. The Chocolate Coconut Cookies in this book are unbelievably decadent for the quick time it took to make. The Green Market Baking Book is a delightful treat not to be missed by anyone who loves to bake. You will certainly have your eaters ooo-ing, ahh-ing, and yumming for more. Enjoy!

I like this book for a number of reasons. First, I enjoy cooking interesting food with local ingredients. Second, there are very few outright weird recipes (and I plan to make one of the ones that I find odd, the chocolate beet cake for an open minded bunch this weekend). I love sweets (maybe not a whole lot at once) and bread and this book is brimming with them. Aside from some of the more exotic sweeteners there are relatively few recipes that require hard to find ingredients. I like this too, it reminds me of my old favorite, the Moosewood Cookbook. This makes the book good for those who don't like to go too far afield looking for ingredients. Also, the recipe I have tried so far, the maple ice cream is awesome.

Now for the reason I gave the book four stars instead of five. I worry about some of the nutritional advice given in this book.is questionable. I'll focus on the one major point I have. I'm all for eating less refined sugar and helping the little guy but the suggestion that we should avoid anything sugarcane based/derived is just absurd. Moreover most (if not all) of the "natural" sweeteners mentioned can be just as detrimental to your health as white sugar. And molasses, particularly black strap is full of calcium and iron an other stuff.

Also, the tone felt condescending sometimes.

I'll give an update on the Beet Cake.

This is a well organized, beautifully illustrated cook book. The recipes are segregated by season so that you are able to use only the freshest ingredients. I purchased this book as a gift for my college age son, who is a budding chef. After reading the book, I had to make a few of the recipes before I gave the book away and am very glad that I did. Don't miss the Figgy Pudding.

A friend loaned me this book last week and we have already made the Veggie Frittata, Blueberry muffins, and Chocolate Tofu Pudding. Everything is free of processed sugar and I have made all of mine dairy free as well and my 4 year old son gobbled everything up. I love how easy the recipes are, and yet how delicious they are. She makes it very easy to use substitutes if you do not have a particular ingredient on hand. Love it!

I am thoroughly enjoying this recipe book because it is more than just a recipe book. It is teaching how to cook more healthily, as well as educating the reader about the ingredients, how to substitute ingredients, etc. I have tried many of the entries and loved all of them so far. I especially liked the apple pie for both ease and taste...the best I have ever tasted! Thank you to the authors for this book, the delicious recipes and getting me back trying to cook more naturally and healthily.
