Praise for jae steele's Get It Ripe:

“This book is less a cookbook than an all-in-one guide to healthy vegan living, for which steele's holistic-nutritionist training is put to good use.”—VegNews

Get It Ripe, jae steele’s 2008 cookbook, established her as a credible and charismatic authority on veganism; her holistic nutritionist background and sassy cowpunk sensibility enco

One of my favorite things about cookbooks and recipe collections is that there's a chance to learn more about different cultures, lifestyles, and folks who enjoy things that are new to you. Although I'm not a vegan personally, I am definitely interested in local eating and sustainable food-related practices, which is what piqued my interest in this book.

Ripe From Around Here comes out swinging, with informational sections on seasonal eating, local eating, growing your own produce (even in urban
It was alright. Mostly cookbook with some interesting info but not what I was expecting or looking for at the time.

A book that finally combines local sustainable eating with vegan recipes! There's also a large section on traditional Chinese medicine. I learned a lot from reading this book, which was written by a holistic nutritionist.The book is stil a great resource that discusses farming, food creation and principles. As a beelover, I especially appreciated her take on beekeeping and support for it. The book is Canadian and lists lots of other books for further reading.

"...capitalism has led us to believe that development is a process that will go on forever. This philosophy portrays nature as an infinite resource. [Petrini] says we have treated the earth that provides our food as if there were no need to reinvest in it, no need to help rebuild the soils we deplete or clean the water we poison. What has recently become apparent to anyone who reads the news is that this is not true." (pg. 46)

Honestly, I love this lady! She was so knowledgeable and exposed me to some important information that I had no idea about! I like the recipes but I wish there were more pictures. This book really needed some food-porn shots!
I really liked how much she stresses the importance of eating locally grown foods. I definitely think more people, including myself, could make a bigger effort to support their communities.
I love this book. My daughter was a recipe tester in this book! Every recipe I have tried has been a winner. There are lots of raw recipes too.
The recipes aren't very accessible, using a large number of odd ingredients. The first chapter, Health is Happiness, is very worth a read.
What could be better than vegan food based right in my neighbourhood?
I loved the recipes in this book, and the general realistic locavore advice.
I love the recipes in the book. It's easy to cook and taste great.
A very helpful book. Far more than a cookbook.
