Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Fifield offers 100 main-dish recipes from her popular What's for Supper? program at the Co-op Food Stores in New Hampshire. These excellent dishes are low in fat, emphasize fresh produce and will please both meat eaters and vegetarians. Soups, stews and stir-frys can generally be prepared in a single pot or pan. Recipes "are designed to encourage the cook's creativity," which is not a way of saying the recipes haven't been adequately tested. Quite the contrary: additions and substitutions are suggested for almost every recipe. Dishes such as Portabella Cassoulet will inspire cooks to cruise the produce aisle of their grocery store or co-op with renewed zeal. Sturdy recipes such as Pasta with Tomato "Cream," which uses evaporated milk for a creamy taste without the calories, and Spicy Sesame Stir-Fry Beef will please kids and picky eaters without boring sophisticates. Golden Delight transforms seasonal butternut squash and walnuts into a topping for pasta. Recipes make the most of healthful ingredients such as salmon, whole grains (including quinoa) and ground turkey. Texas Hash and Grampa's Saturday Night Kale invigorate comfort foods with spice. Peanut Veggie Stir-Fry, among many other dishes, is a deceptively simple, deeply satisfying meal that will easily become a staple of the healthful and economical home cook's menu. (Apr.)

From Library Journal

What makes this cookbook unique is the inclusion of a brief history of the Hanover Consumer Cooperative Society (NH), America's oldest continually operated consumer cooperative. Located near Dartmouth College, the co-op was organized in the mid-1930s and still offers a range of products, services, and educational opportunities like the "What's for Supper?" program that spawned this cookbook. Fifield, the co-op's education director, uses these recipes to reinforce her assertion that healthy meals can be made quickly using fresh vegetables and a variety of grains, beans, seafood, and meat. Ingredients for these one-dish meals should be readily available in supermarkets as well as co-op stores. Meals-in-minutes cookbooks certainly aren't rare, and Fifield's comments on ingredients, food safety, and kitchen timesavers aren't unique, but the historical notes may appeal to people of the region and to members of other co-ops. Others will enjoy it simply as a resource for 100 easy, satisfying recipes. Recommended.

Format: Paperback
In The Co-Op Cookbook, Rosemary Fifield (Education Director at the Co-op Food Stores in Hanover and Lebanon, New Hampshire) provides the health and budget conscious kitchen cook a compendium of tips for planning ahead, hints on using a kitchen more efficiently, directions for preparing and using fresh ingredients, ideas for substituting ingredients (including seasonal produce and grains), and an informative introduction to the principles of cooperative ownership. From Grampa's Saturday Night Kale, Asian Spicy Rice, and Sicilian Spirals, to Apple Harvest Chicken, Tarragon Surimi, and Cold Turkey Salad, Highly recommended for any family kitchen cookbook collection, The Co-Op Cookbook showcases recipes taken from traditional cuisines featuring Italian, Asian, and Mexican influences, adapted to please even the most discriminating palate. Virtually all of these mouth-watering main-dish recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less!

Format: Paperback
As you know, cookbooks abound and most serious cooks have a plethora of good cookbooks in their kitchen library. Though this small paperback (100 recipes) has some interesting aspects about it, overall it doesn't stack-up well.
After trying various recipes, such as Chicken Pozole and Chicken Palermo, my guest and I came away unimpressed. The dishes were generous but the flavor in most recipes was just fair to good. There are no photos or drawings and the first 25 pages of the book deal with the 150 years of the Hanover Co-Op. The strength of "Co-Op Cookbook" is in the cooking time (30 minutes or less), the easy to follow instructions and most of the recipes ingredients are those that you would normally have.. This cookbook doesn't have the verve of the great cookbooks available today. Conditionally Recommended.
