CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $35.00 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Growing Roots: The New Generation of Sustainable Farmers, Cooks, and Food Activists is about a new revolution in food that involves young people who are living sustainable lives that revolve around healthy, natural food.

The book introduces us to farmers and beekeepers, fishermen and chefs, food activists and cheesemongers, and many, many more. We meet these fascinating young people from all across the nation through first-person profiles, along with brilliant photographs and delicious, simple recipes. They talk about raising grass-fed beef, lamb, and pork; growing vegetables and grains; keeping bees and making cheese; and their restaurants and their markets. Included are filmmakers, writers, and artists who change the way we look at what we eat and where our food comes from. In their profiles we learn how these young people got to where they are today, their backgrounds, their education, and their passionate relationship to food.

The author’s through-line gives us a glimpse of her own journey with food, through her own childhood, raising children, and becoming an empty-nester. Growing Roots is about relationships and how food figures in those relationships. It is for everyone who is interested in learning about this new iteration of the food movement and the folks involved, whether you’d like to figure out how to do it for yourself, or just love reading about it. The photos are beautiful, the narrative lively, and the recipes simple and delicious. A must-read for all ages and a wonderful addition to the food-lover’s bookshelf.

Good Meat is a comprehensive guide to sourcing and enjoying sustainable meat. With the rising popularity of the locavore and organic food movements — and the terms “grass fed” and “free range” commonly seen on menus and in grocery stores — people across the country are turning their attention to where their meat comes from. Whether for environmental reasons, health benefits, or the astounding difference in taste, consumers want to know that their meat was raised well.

With more than 200 recipes for pork, beef, lamb, poultry and game, stunning photos of delicious dishes, and tips on raising sustainable meat and buying from local farmers, Good Meat is sure to become the classic cooking resource of the sustainable meat movement.

“The healing local food movement's success hinges on artisanal farming and domestic culinary arts. Good Meat takes the mystery out of both in a masterful way, bringing all of us another giant step closer to healing the planet one bite at a time. Beautiful pictures and delightful explanations . . . Everyone interested in local, earth-friendly food will love this book." —Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farm

"Good Meat is a template for all future cookbooks: one that educates on the culinary differences between factory-farmed meats and animals raised on family farms, and the utilization of the entire animal in a sustainable manner." —Patrick Martins, founder of Slow Food USA, Heritage Foods USA

Why a honey recipe book? Because nothing could be sweeter!

Honey, I'm Homemade: Sweet Treats From the Beehive Across the Centuries and Around the World showcases a wealth of recipes for cookies, breads, pies, puddings, and cakes that feature honey as an essential ingredient. Noted entomologist May Berenbaum also details the fascinating history of honey harvesting and consumption around the world, explains the honey bee's extraordinary capacity to process nectar into concentrated sweetness, and marvels at honey's diverse flavors and health benefits.

Honey is a unique food because of its power to evoke a particular time and place. Every time it is collected from a hive, honey takes on the nuanced flavors of a particular set of flowers - clover, orange blossoms, buckwheat, or others - at a certain point in time processed and stored by a particular group of bees. Honey is not just a snapshot of a time and place - it's the taste of a time and place, and it lends its flavors to the delectable baked goods and other treats found here.

More than a cookbook, Honey, I'm Homemade is a tribute to the remarkable work of Apis mellifera, the humble honey bee whose pollination services allow three-quarters of all flowering plant species to reproduce and flourish. Sales of the book will benefit the University of Illinois Pollinatarium - the first freestanding science outreach center in the nation devoted to flowering plants and their pollinators.

Because so much depends on honey bees, and because people have benefited from their labors for millennia, Honey, I'm Homemade is the perfect way to share and celebrate honey's sweetness and delight.

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $21.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Organic food is synonymous with premium quality, the deepest, richest taste, conscientious farming, and optimum health. It’s what we need to feed our kids, what we deserve to feed ourselves. And no one is doing more to popularize organic food than author Myra Goodman in Food to Live By.

A dazzling full-color cookbook, Food to Live By offers an utterly appealing, new casual style of cooking based on using the best ingredients, organic or otherwise. Easy to prepare, the more than 260 recipes make a deliciously persuasive case for using flavorful, fresh, organic foods as often as possible.

Take the Sweet Corn Chowder, which uses not only corn kernels for the soup, but also the stripped cobs to make a rich, herb-scented broth. Or Ginger Carrot Soup, which proves how even familiar vegetables take on a whole new intensity and character when raised organically. Plus, throughout are Farm-Fresh Ingredient boxes — on sorrel, corn, asparagus, artichokes — cooking and shopping tips, and health notes.

About the authors:

Myra Goodman and her husband, Drew, founded Earthbound Farm in 1984. She's been creating her own recipes and cooking with their organic food ever since their first raspberry crop.

Linda Holland is a California-based food writer whose pieces have appeared in The New York Times and Gourmet.

Pamela McKinstry is the consulting chef of Earthbound Farm; previously, she owned and operated several restaurants on Nantucket.
