I own a few hundred cookbooks but only a dozen or so are favorites that live on my kitchen shelf. At Home in the Whole Food Kitchen has quickly earned a spot in that group. From the quality of the paper to the gorgeous photography and the fantastic recipes, I love everything about it!

To me, this book is an invitation to engage in the nourishing rituals of shopping for quality ingredients (whole, seasonal, local, organic) and preparing them in a way that delivers maximum taste and health benefits. Amy Chaplin’s professional background shines through these pages: her experience as a chef, recipe developer and teacher is evident in the perfectly composed recipes and the clear, concise instructions.

The first part of the book offers thoughtful, well-edited sections on ingredients, equipment, and techniques, where Amy shares a cooking philosophy that is gentle for our health and for the planet: practical strategies to reduce plastic use; methods for soaking and preparing grains, beans and nuts; etc.

This is followed by more than 150 inspiring recipes that comprise a nice balance of simple, quick recipes for busy days and recipes that require more time or involve several components. Throughout the book Amy offers several suggestions for meal/menu composition and I especially enjoyed her description of “A week of meals in my kitchen.” There are also many great tips that will enhance my cooking skills; for example, Amy suggests adding an umeboshi plum instead of salt when cooking rice and the result is indeed very good.

This book takes the way we eat in our house now (vegan-tending, focus on grains, legumes, and vegetables, few highly processed foods) and makes it delicious. I'm cooking out of this book more now even than I did from Moosewood back in the day. Many dishes have already become favorites, among them the Kale Slaw with Creamy Mustard Dressing, the Tempeh-Portobello Burgers, the Arame dish, and the Lemony Lentils. Lots more too.

i've been in the natural food world for twenty years and order a lot of cookbooks on amazon. there was a buzz about this book before it came out and word on other food blogs about amy's work were really positive. so naturally i did the point and click and bought the book. it has not disappointed. she has twisted a lot of healthy standbys into really tasty food. and amy has come up with some truly original recipes. what else can you do with quinoa, you ask? try it with coconut, vanilla, lemon and additional ingredients for pancakes that are splendid. some of the salad dressings that i've tried have been just gorgeous (flax, black sesame seeds, scallions, tamari and a dash of apple cider vinegar - trust me on this you could eat the phone book with this dressing). this book has opened me up to new ingredients (black sesame seeds, hemp seeds, chickpea flour for socca) and new cooking methods (pressure cooker). amy also found a way to make soaking your grains, seeds and beans into a lovely ritual. this is great book to get you out of a healthy cooking rut and fall in love with food that has soul.

As a new vegetarian I wasn't eating right, my energy level was low, and I wasn't sleeping good. I found Amy Chaplin. Thank God. Started subscribing to her newsletter, and bought her cookbook. I love these recipes, they are easy to read, and easy to make. Amy takes you step by step also suggesting substitutes as to what's fresh at your local farmers market. I can safely say I am addicted to the Fall Stew. My Husband has been a daily eater of meat and potatoes, white rice, ect... When I make Fall Stew he falls in love with me all over again. After 23yrs food matters lol. He is diabetic with a sweet tooth, I make Amy's desserts and his doctor said if he keeps up the good work and keeps his sugar down he will be off insulin and on a pill soon. Amy is a life saver and she has taught me so much, most importantly how to prepare foods that aren't made with processed ingredients. Buy this book, it will change your life. Thank you Amy xo

One of the best healthy cookbook! So beautiful! Inspire my daily cooking. I have tried so many great recipes from this week, they all turn out amazing and very delicious! Besides recipes, I love the pantry section and extra sections-my life with tea,cleaning, organics, resources, very informative! I attached few pictures of the recipes I tried. Date pistachio praline tart, Cranberry almond tart and Fettuccini with kale, red lions and marinated goat cheese...

This is a nice book and I would like to rate it higher - but, many of the ingredients are costly and not readily available unless one lives close to a outstanding produce market. Most of the recipes sound tasty though and the photography is well done. This is a book for someone who is in their kitchen a lot, someone who loves to dice and chop, someone who is really in to whole foods as a lifestyle - which we all should be I guess. I try, I never go to the frozen or canned food isles yet this book still is too intense for me. However, I purchased this book for my young daughter-in-law who is a Home Economics teacher at a high school and I think she will like it. If you dream of mason jars of lentils and yeast on a open wood shelf in a hipster kitchen - go for it!
