Editorial Reviews

Review

“Co-founder of Earthbound Farm, one of the country’s largest organic food suppliers, Goodman knows about cooking with a conscience. Filled with 250 healthy and eco-friendly recipes, this new cookbook also helps solve common problems for the modern cook, like choosing between farmed and wild fish and decoding food labels.”
- Barbara Fairchild, Bon Appétit

“It’s packed with family-tested recipes, time- and energy-saving tips, written with a “save the planet” message that is more heartfelt than heavy-handed.”
- Kristen Browning-Blas, The Denver Post

The Earthbound Cook: 250 Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet is classified as a cookbook, and, indeed, it is. It doesn’t take long to discover, however, that, in addition to recipes for delicious sounding dishes like Butternut, White Bean and Chard Soup or Mussels Provencal, the book is a treasure trove of information about organic farming, environmental concerns, food production, environmentally responsible living and other important topics that affect the Earth and the food we eat. The book is fun to read; offers lots of good tips and advice; and serves as a wake-up call regarding the significance of how our food is produced, processed, packaged and transported.”
- Susan Shelly, The Reading Eagle

“…The Earthbound Cook should be a kitchen staple for anyone passionate about good, fresh food, and who believes that what we choose to eat is a powerful way to take eco-responsibility.”
Lynn Alley, Yoga Journal Blog

“The book’s core is sharing ecological information and encouraging readers to change the world with what they buy and serve on their family table. She kneaded basic cooking info with 250 palate-pleasing recipes that protect the environment.”
- Janice Denham, YourJournal.Com

Review

“Myra Goodman’s passion for producing delicious food – on the farm and in the kitchen – is absolutely infectious! The Earthbound Cook will delight your palate and make it easy for you to make environmentally friendly food choices in the kitchen and at the grocery store.”
- Ken Cook, Founder and Executive Director of Environmental Working Group

More About the Author

Myra Goodman and her husband, Drew, originally "city kids" from Manhattan, founded Earthbound Farm in their 2 1/2 acre backyard garden in Carmel Valley, CA in 1984. They originally farmed heirloom raspberries, and then added herbs, baby lettuces, and gourmet greens. Myra and Drew were the first to successfully market pre-washed salads for retail sale, and Earthbound Farm soon grew to become the largest grower of organic produce in North America. Myra fell in love with organic farming and cooking at the same time. Her inspiration has always been the bountiful seasonal harvest. She is very excited that her newest cookbook was created in collaboration with her daughter Marea, who grew up on the founding farm where Drew and Myra still live today.

OK, I love cookbooks and have shelves in my home filled with them. So it is no small thing for me to say that The Earthbound Cook is probably my favorite. Ever. The recipes in this book are absolutely wonderful. I was surprised to find so many dishes that appeal to me in one book: almost all of them!

There are plenty of meat dishes, along with tasty vegetable based recipes (check out the interesting salads and dressing). There are clever uses of whole grains, delicious breakfasts, breads, desserts and drinks. Every recipe I've tried is wholesome yet full of flavor.

Along the side of many of the pages there are green tips and information about how what we eat effects the environment. There are also many helpful kitchen tips. In the section "Pantry Basics" we can learn about "cleaning green," "freezing fresh produce" (who knew?) and how to live more ecologically minded. I did not feel knocked over the head with "go green or else." Interesting information was presented here in a friendly, useful, unobtrusive way. I have even learned some surprising things (microwave ovens can an times be an "eco hero"?!).

Most importantly, the food is fantastic. In my house, many of the recipes are instant classics. Here are some of my favorites:
I am addicted to the Yam and Winter Squash Casserole (p.233- which I also like eating cold as leftovers); Buffalo Shepherd's Pie (p.87-really, give it a try!); the Stuffed Cabbage (p.81--I actually like the brown rice and ground turkey version/option even better than the beef, although it needs to cook for a little longer. FYI this recipe gives you so many stuffed cabbages you can throw a big dinner party or freeze some for another time).

The Oatmeal, Carrot and Apple Breakfast Squares (p.392) have changed our lives.

Format: Paperback
Wow. I am so impressed with Earthbound Farm's new cookbook. I have been reading it since 6:00 a.m. this morning. Not only is it a great cookbook, but I really enjoy the explanations/definitions of what is farmed seafood, what is organic vs. natural meat, tips about recycling and it seems like every other page has a "living green" section. As a consumer, I have been really confused about what these various things mean. Now, I have an better understanding.

The recipes range from Myra Goodman's Mother Edith's Stuffed Cabbage recipe to Vietnamese Shrimp and Bok Choy Curry. Myra also gives a very good explanation of Southeast Asian cooking and various types of green and red curry recipes. There is also a vegetarian section with unique and easy to make side dishes and entrees.

Again, this is such a good cookbook. She even has an entire section on how to cut herbs and what kind of knives are most effective.

I really look forward to reading again tomorrow morning as I drink my 6:00 a.m. coffee. Earthbound Cook is not just a cookbook, it's an educational tool that can teach me how to make better choices as a consumer and a person who feels responsibility to the earth.

Format: Paperback
Everyone I know loves this book. First off, the recipes are absolutely incredible. You feel like you're at your own farm to table restaurant (which is my dream as I live in a big urban city). They're the kind of dishes you crave for days afterward and have to make again as soon as possible. My sister and I found ourselves making things and calling each other saying "You have to make the salad with the strawberries! And you've never tasted halibut like this! They're beyond delicious."
But there's so much more to this book you won't find anyplace else: The field guide to salad greens (brilliant idea), the guide to making eco friendly meat choices. Lots of great photos and easy to follow.
You also feel like you're a guest at Myra Goodman's house (again my dream).
The absolute most perfect holiday gift for anyone who loves food, loves to cook, or is learning to cook.

The illustrations alone urge you to use local organic foodstuffs, but the simple recipes yield delicious, wholesome dishes that delight the eye and the palate! Earthbound Cook lets us know why we should cook to bring joy to family eating. A great addition to the universe of cookbooks!

Format: Paperback
Myra Goodman's marvelous new book, The Earthbound Cook: Recipes for Delicious Food and a Healthy Planet (Workman), is much, much more than a cookbook. In addition to recipes, it is replete with gorgeous food, farm and family photos, practical kitchen tips, and eye-opening information on how to live sustainably to protect the earth's precious resources.

And what a story! Myra, the co-founder of Earthbound Farm (EBF) along with her husband Drew, started EBF on several acres in their backyard in 1984, and today, their once-small garden has grown to more than 150 farmers growing organic produce on 37,000 acres, making EBF the largest grower/producer of organic produce and related products in the U.S.
In reality, there is nothing earthbound about Myra--more like heavenly in my view!--and her new book is chock full of out-of-this-world recipes accompanied by mouth-watering photos of delectable dishes made from organic food, straight from the garden.

Myra's passion for organic food comes alive in recipes like Curried Garnet Yam Soup, Roasted Cauliflower Tart, and Whole Wheat Crepes filled with a variety of sweet and savory ingredients. Each and every recipe inspires even the most reluctant cook to action, and the accompanying photos are a veritable feast for the eyes.

Adding to the value of this beautiful book is the information Myra offers on a wealth of food related topics: responsible living and eating; preserving our precious resources; avoiding harmful pesticides; cage free v. nest fresh eggs; wild or farmed salmon; carbon footprint measures; energy saving cooking tips; clarification of oft-confusing terms such as grass fed, pasture forage or free range; the environmental benefits of organic farming, and more.
