There is nothing more delightful than a tomato still warm from the sun, or a strawberry so perfectly ripe that it stains your fingers.

Why not eat this way all the time? The healthiest and most delicious food comes from farmers and artisans just down the road—though it is often easy to forget when we are surrounded by food shipped to our supermarkets from around the world a

Earth to Table is much more than a cookbook; it covers a wide range of organic, "slow food" topics, delicious and unique recipes that use all-organic ingredients and features several Chief profiles.

A sample of the recipes inside:

Scrambled Eggs with Chives and Caviar
Saffron Rice
Rhubarb Fool
The photography was what first drew me to this book - vibrant, earthy shots of vegetables, fields, and what we call “food” in its natural element. Visually appealing, the book progresses through the seasons with a list of what foods are available, recipes using those ingredients, and various commentary by chefs who have learned the connection between farm and table.

I do wish there was more substance to the book - more recipes and less commentary. Still, it’s a beautiful book to have on your she

Such a beautiful book! It contains a veritable wealth of lovely photographs, stories, and recipes. Most of all, though, it's a love letter to farmers, and organics, and the earth, and beautiful food. You could literally spend hours paging through it and reveling in the gorgeous photography and stories (plus the delicious-looking food!). I especially enjoyed the organic manifesto at the end - right on!
I added this book to my list to read long before I even moved to Hamilton. After moving here and discovering the Earth to Table Bread bar restaurant, I unearthed the beautiful home of this amazing cookbook. I ended up getting it as a birthday gift from my partner a few months later and I still love flipping through it for seasonal inspiration.
Delicious! I have cooked several of the recipes out of the Fall section of the book. I was impressed with both the production quality of the book (beautiful photos, entertaining essays with famous chefs covering sustainability topics and the recipes themselves).

I made the French Onion soup and was in heaven!
After reading Grapes of Wrath, this cookbook seems timely... Interesting commentary about the importance of supporting your local farmers (without being preachy) beautiful pictures, and delicious recipes. Can I get a caprese salad with some Mapletons ice cream for dessert please?

My brother gave me this book for Christmas and I'm loving it! It has inspired me to plant a garden again this spring so I can reap the benefits of fresh fruits and veggies all summer long! I have also tried a couple of the recipes already. Everything is simple and delicious.
Beautiful photography. Great looking food. And perfect message about organic, local food. But not very practical for me as far as the complexity of the recipes.

I loved this book to it's core. If you want to start thinking, cooking, and farming/gardening in a sustainable way, I recommend this book.
there are some good recipes, but a lot of them are just not something I would feed to my family on an everyday basis.
