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

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.

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.

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.

I live in the Pacific NW, in a smallish town about halfway between two major cities, surrounded by farms and orchards, and close to the water. To say we have an abundance of amazing produce and fish would be an understatement. I prefer shopping at local farm stands and farmers' markets, and I usually purchase local fish already broken down and flash frozen. I don't eat a lot of meat, but do like chicken. I'm not a vegetarian, but find that I eat "vegetarian" usually 3 days a week, sometimes more.

So this book really is right up my alley. Close to nature, simply prepared dishes utilizing locally-grown products, minimal "fuss." Yes, this is the way I like to cook. There are 250 recipes - most are easy to prepare using basic ingredients.

Myra Goodman has filled in the book with tips and techniques to make your kitchen more "green" -- covering topics like water conservation, energy savings, sustainability, composting -- you get the idea. These are presented as essays or quick tips -- easy to read while you're waiting for the water to boil or the soup to simmer.

But I really purchased this for the recipes, and so far, I have not been disappointed. I always try at least three recipes from each cookbook before I review it, and "The Earthbound Cook" was no exception.

FIrst up: from Chapter 4 (Fish and Shellfish) -- Seared Salmon with Chipotle-Lime Butter. I'm single, so I cut the recipe in half to make 2 servings instead of 4. This was a fast dish -- mix the marinade, let fish sit in that for an hour, then a quick sear while preparing the butter mixture. Less than 15 minutes from fish into the skillet to eating. And it was sublime.
