Develops a sense of lifelong learning as the authors walk through their experience of growing an earth-friendly restaurant.

They love life, food, and sharing their discoveries together.

The seasonal organization helped me decide how to begin to apply what they have learned. I liked the "start with these local foods" approach at the beginning of each season.

I love the earth to table thought. Getting something straight from the farm. I picked this up at a thrift store because of the bright pictures of salads and fruit. There are some good recipes in there. I really want to make the corn on the cob with the chili lime. I like that it’s separated by seasons. Gives it more of a spring to summer feel in the types of food and then into fall winter.

Great book to introduce you to being a chef, along with great recipes. Changed my views on food and eating.

A beautiful book. It feels like luxury just to read it. I particularly appreciated the book's focus on seasonal and sustainable eating. It also inspired me to forage for food, a hobby that I think will serve me for the rest of my life. With each season, I go and gather the foods--delicious and free--that I did not think to gather before. Blackberries, fiddleheads, mushrooms, dandelion greens, and apples---all now serving to sustain my family. Now each season brings with it the delight of the foods that go best with that season. There is always something to look forward to!

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
Maple Shoofly Pie
New Potatoes Salad with Green Beans and Shallots
Grilled Corn on the Cob with Chilies and Cheese
French Vanilla Ice Cream...

This securely bound, hardcover cookbook is just the thing for cooks who are very selective and prefer to use organic foods; it is also a very functional cookbook for those of us who are non-organic cooks and food consumers. Each of the seasonal recipe sections is prefaced with an introduction that talks about the foods available during that particular season; the flavorful and imaginative recipes are easy to understand and easy to follow with a clear layout that makes this a great cookbook for beginners, right on up to experienced cooks. There are several enlightening profiles that feature Chiefs from...

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 shelf, and some of the recipes do look stunning.

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!

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.

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.

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?

there are some good recipes, but a lot of them are just not something I would feed to my family on an everyday basis.

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.
