Review

'Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients by Jesse Ziff Cool encourages home cooks to embrace organics as a lifestyle rather than a fad; includes 150 recipes.'Publishers Weekly, March 10, 2008

'Now updated, those first easy recipes and thoughts on buying and cooking sustainably raised foods, meaning those that protect the planet and people in their production, are the basis of this sunny, stunning new volume. It's full of uncomplicated dishes like these, says Cool, designed to show off the quality of whole, fresh ingredients. 'It's what it means to cook, really, in the old-fashioned way,' she says.'NY Daily News, March 22, 2008

'A book by Jesse Ziff Cool, cookbook author and advocate of sustainable agriculture and cuisine, tells how to convert kitchens to organic and how what we pluck from grocery store shelves affects the environment. Simply Organic walks you through the conversation. (Her advice: You don't have to do it all at once.)'The Arizona Republic, February 2008

'If you want a book that is a little more back to basics, give Simply Organic by Jesse Ziff Cool a try...The recipes are straight-forward and easy to follow. There are guides for recipes such as green goodness chicken and asparagus salad, beef stew with baby spring vegetables, stuffed pattypan squash, grilled green tomatoes, and old-fashioned cream spinach. It's sure to take you back to your cooking roots.'Tyler Morning Telegraph, March 2008

'I dug right into this cookbook when I got it since it is inviting and you can almost feel Jesse's strong devotion to organic, seasonally available ingredients as you read it I also loved the details Jesse provided such as how to determine if I'd added enough flour and not merely stating how long to cook the gnocchi but telling me how to know when they were done.' ProjectFoodie.com, April 9, 2008

'a hefty cookbook loaded with semi-glossy pages and gorgeous photographs' 7x7 Blog, March 7, 2008

I'm thrilled this book is back in a much improved, gorgeously formatted version. I had the original edition from some years back, lent it to a friend that ended up moving out of the country, and I'd been meaning to order a used copy for eons until I read something about it recently. The seasonal organization makes it so easy to eat the real food that Jesse's been advocating for, and cooking with, for decades. I can't wait to make the angel food cake again!

Even though I am a huge fan of Jessie Cool's restaurant, the Flea Street Cafe, I wasn't planning on getting this cookbook--a cookbook devoted to organic foods just didn't float my boat. However, after tasting three of the recipes at dinner parties, I was hooked. I've made four of the recipes so far and each tastes as good as I anticipated it would. My only negative comment, and the reason I withheld the final star, is that everything is arranged by season--It would be so much easier to find things by recipe categories or meals. With the wealth of recipes available on the internet, I no longer buy cookbooks. I'm glad I made an exception for this one.

I was really excited about receiving this book, as I had already read "Your Organic Kitchen" By Jesse Ziff Cool and was excited for the follow up.
This book is the same book as Your Organic Kitchen, just re-packaged!!!! Same recipes!!! The pictures were better in Your Organic kitchen. It's the same book marketed under a different title. I feel really riped off. She just decided to reprint the same book from 2000 because Sustainable, local and organic are now all buzz words.
I am really saddened by this misrepresentation.

I received the book in the mail the other day. The book was bigger than I expected but that's cool. I found myself reading most of the introduction which is rare. The only thing I regret about this book is that there were not enough pictures. I found the recipes to be simple and interesting enough to want to try them. I have'n read anything else by this author but I can say I like this one and am excited about trying the recipes.

I got this for a friend at Christmas. I thought there would be creative recipes using organic ingredients. Its ok, but not nothing too new or inventive. The book is categorized by seasons, which is helpful in some ways, but not so much in others. We found a few recipes to try...in the summer. When I think "organic", I also think of healthier eating such as gluten-free, dairy-free, wheat-free, etc. If you think the same way, then this book may not be the best choice for you.
There are good recipes! Just not so much for me.

Format: Paperback
This book was well laid out, sorted by season so you can get a feel for what kinds of meals and ingredients are available at any given time. The information at the beginning of the book may be helpful for people new to organics but will not be news to anyone who is at all familiar with the subject. Large nicely done Colorado photos are a plus.

That said, the recipes peaceable lot to be desired. They are obviously written by a restaurateur; many ingredients are expensive or unlikely to be readily available everywhere. As another reviewer noted, most of these recipes are just minor tweaked on standard cookbook fare with the word organic thrown in front: fillet mignon, scallops, salads, angel food cake, etc.

I was not impressed and am glad I didn't spend money to have my own copy - it isn't worth it.

I got this for a gift from another site (almost double the price so THIS is a great deal). Before I wrapped it I ended up reading through most of the intro and a bunch of recipes! ITs the perfect book to walk you through the seasons and helps you understand all the terms and labels that are used out there. I learned a lot and can't wait to hit our local farms markets! Im getting one for myself now!
