Editorial Reviews

Review

Going beyond simply eating local and seasonally, jae steele tackles the largest issue: food production. Plants require less energy to produce, yet yield significantly more nutrients than animal options, making a plant-based diet an important choice. If all of us in the western world implemented the ideas in "Ripe from around Here", there would be a global decline in disease, obesity, and dependence on fossil fuel. Climate change would slow; our economy would see a resurgence. Bold statements, I realize, but I don't hesitate to make them. When applied, the information in this book will prove to be the best thing you can do for personal and environmental health.
?Brendan Brazier, creator of Vega, author of "The Thrive Diet" and "Thrive Fitness", and professional vegan triathlete--Brendan Brazier "Brendan Brazier "

She's done it again! I found Jae Steele's first cookbook in a cool little bookshop while I was on holiday in Canada - it quickly became my favourite cookbook, and I've given at least five copies of it as gifts. I've only had my copy of this new volume for a few days but I can already tell that I will love it just as much. To be honest, I haven't read the essays in front, I probably will some time, but they aren't what holds my interest. What I like about Jae's books is the way she combines healthy foods into utterly yummy recipes. She has a real talent for finding tasty combinations that are new to me, things I hadn't thought of before that turn out to be just what I wanted to eat - and I've been a fairly serious vegetarian cook for about 25 years now. Also I find her recipes are forgiving and easy to adapt so that I can use the ingredients I want to use and get good results.

Her wholegrain baking has been a revelation to me - I love baked goods, but I do so much better on a not-too-rich wholegrain diet and her muffin & cookie recipes in particular are an awesome way to get these two particular ends to meet. I've not found another wholegrain baking recipe-author who has been able to achieve the balance between health and scrumptiousness as well as Jae has. The strawberry rhubarb muffins in Ripe From Around Here are a subtle delight - not too sweet, the flavours of the fruits mingle beautifully and go so well with the wholegrain spelt muffin. I made a batch today that has been nearly finished already and I've had requests for another batch tomorrow!

I've tried several other recipes from this book so far, and each one has been a delight.

jae steele's first cookbook was a delight, presenting her unique spin on health-conscious veganism. However, she has surpassed herself with this sophomore effort. The introductory sections provide clear guidance through the jungle of issues which arise when one tries to cook and eat in a local, sustainable, ethical way. jae allows for complexity, and encourages her readers to examine the information and make their own conscious choices. Her recipes teach the practical application of the material covered in the earlier chapters. We have made several recipes (the tomato-chard bake, pad thai in the raw, mexican stuffed peppers) so far. Not only have the dishes been excellent and easy/quick enough for a worknight, but most of the ingredients came from our garden or our weekly community supported agriculture share. Whether you care about food politics, good recipes, or both, jae's book is a must-have.

Registered holistic nutritionist Jae Steele presents Ripe From Around Here, a cookbook designed to promote the value of organic and local vegan foods - not only for personal nutrition and health, but also to promote a positive, self-sustaining way of life in harmony with the planet. The first section is packed with tips, tricks, and techniques for finding fresh, healthy, and local ingredients; the second section is packed with recipes and illustrated with a handful of color plates. Recommended culinary creations range from Blueberry Peach Pancakes to Sesame Arame Broccoli Salad to Roasted Ratatouille, Chai Pumpkin Seed Cookies, and much more. A treasury for vegans, or anyone interested in promoting healthy, eco-friendly eating, Ripe From Around Here is highly recommended.

Vegan eating does not have to be boring and having many different cookbooks is always helpful. Many good ideas in this book to work with.
