Editorial Reviews


"This beautiful book, which celebrates Berkeley's iconic grocery, is filled not only with Erin Scott's stunning photographs but also with recipes and ideas for how to use produce that grows on our shores but is not always the easiest to know what to do with. Now I know how to use those banana flowers I've encountered in Florida––and many other foods as well." —Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy and In My Kitchen 

"I've been waiting for this book for the past decade. Since moving to the Bay Area, Berkeley Bowl has been my go-to market for buying food––whether catering an event or cooking for my family––and I am always discovering new produce there. The Berkeley Bowl Cookbook is an invaluable resource with fresh ideas for familiar ingredients and dozens of recipes for ingredients that you probably have never heard of (let alone cooked)." —Bryant Terry, James Beard Foundation Leadership Award recipient and author of Afro-Vegan 

"The recipes are adventurous, but their execution is straightforward—perfect for those looking to cook outside their culinary comfort zones." —Publisher's Weekly 

"If you've ever wanted to diversify your diet and include some of the stranger vegetables at the grocery store, The Berkeley Bowl Cookbook is a must-buy. Registered dietitian Laura McLively has created easy, accessible recipes for vegetables like stinging nettle, sea bean, kohlrabi, ramp, green garlic, chayote, pomelo, and more. She also tells you why they're worthy of inclusion in your diet—and it turns out, there are tons of superfoods (with super benefits!) we're all missing out on." —MindBodyGreen

"You could say [McLively] wrote the book on the place.... You'll be cooking inventively in no time." —Diablo Magazine  

"The diversity is stunning and inspiring, with recipes using flowers, seeds and pods, savoury fruits, leaves, spores and succulents, roots and tubers, stems and sweet fruits, plus tips on where to get these if you don’t live in the shop’s vicinity." —American Express Essentials
