August 2002
Paperback

Book Review
The first Whole Foods Market, selling only minimally processed natural and organic products, opened in 1980. In response to all the customers who ever asked, "How do I cook this?", chef Steve Petusevsky and the Whole Foods Market team members present The Whole Foods Market Cookbook, an enormous collection of healthy recipes, filled with comprehensive explanations and descriptions.

Many of the recipes are longtime customer favorites.

Thirty-five soups and chilis include a heartwarming Roasted Corn Poblano Chowder and a rich, fragrant Sweet Potato Chili. There are a multitude of vegetarian and vegan recipes in every chapter, all clearly marked, and even...

From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Perry, a teacher and consultant to the organic food industry, and freelance writer Schultz skillfully guide readers through the complexities of organic food production, distribution and consumption to help informed purchasing decisions. They begin by detailing the history of organic farming; federal regulations and the U.S.D.A. certification process; nonorganic practices of concern for consumers (pesticides, hormones, genetically engineered organisms and crops, etc.); and the effects of current production methods on the environment and society. Then, they give an aisle-by-aisle guide to supermarket and health food store shelves. Useful tools—such as label and ingredient comparisons, a brand guide, explanations of processing methods—will allow readers to confidently choose between...

Juiceman's Power of Juicing
Jay Kordich
0688114431
May 1992
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Written by juicing pioneer and juice machine marketer "The Juiceman" Kordich, this primer will attract readers hip to a new health craze. Juice is the health food of the moment, a tonic, some believe, for various maladies. And while the author is cautious about depicting his juices as panaceas (he heralds juicing simply as "a magnificent way to feed the body with valuable vitamins and minerals"), he clearly believes people should use juicing for what ails them. Recipes like "the blemish blaster" are fully designed with sickness in mind. Yet not all the juices are medicinal. Included are some interesting fruit combinations: morning blush (pineapple and pink grapefruit) and ginger jolt (apples, pears, gingerroot). The two "milkshake" recipes--"creamsicle in a glass" and strawberry shake--are inventive, calling for...

The Juicing Bible
Pat Crocker
0778800199
October 2000
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Advocates of fruit and vegetable juices cite the high levels of vitamins and antioxidants in these products. Ironically, juicing requires an electrically powered machine to reduce raw fruits and vegetables to a drinkable liquid state. Pat Crocker and Susan Eagles have produced The Juicing Bible to stretch the imagination of those who own juicing machines. They promote unusual combinations of juices such as beets, ginger, apple, celery, chile, and garlic to vary otherwise humdrum products. While some may question the health-claim benefits outlined in the book's first half, interest in healing through natural foods continues to grow. The book's extensive lists of juice combinations make it a very useful reference. Mark Knoblauch

From Publishers Weekly
Ableman chronicles his three-month journey across the U.S., during which he meets fellow farmers (he's also an author, photographer and executive director of an urban agricultural center in California) and strives to "reassure [himself] that abundance is enhanced, not sacrificed, by humane and sustainable practices." He brings along son Aaron; the two leave their family and farm in British Columbia to share wonder and wisdom with farmers nationwide. They stay at farms and learn their hosts' growing methods and family stories. Ableman's musings range from the changing seasons to the political challenges of small-scale farming. Recipes close each chapter; lucky Ableman sampled the dishes in the company of the people who grew the ingredients, from Anthony and Carol Boutard, who grow Charentais melons in Oregon, to...

Robbing the Bees
Holley Bishop

Jan 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Holley Bishop loves bees. No, more than that: she idolizes them. She marvels at their native abilities and the momentous role these misunderstood and unjustly feared creatures have played in the development of human history. And with her book, Robbing the Bees, she succeeds in making the reader love bees, too. Take this nifty bit of information, one of countless fascinating factoids offered by Bishop in her celebration of all things bee-related: "Because of bees' starring role in the drama of pollination, we humans are indebted to them, directly and indirectly, for a third of our food supply. Visiting bees are required for the commercial production of more than a hundred of our most important crops including alfalfa, garlic, apples, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, citrus, melons, onion, almonds, turnips, parsley, sunflower,...

"In this meditative celebration of a yearly event, gathering and cooking maple sap, Hauser reflects on Native American traditions and on the process she herself uses when making maple syrup in northern Minnesota. In what is as much a practical guide as a personal essay, Hauser writes with beauty and simplicity¿"--Booklist

"In Sugaring, Hauser leads us on a poetic journey through the sugaring season in Minnesota, with instructions for novices who want to try this tradition." --Country Home

"Like maple syrup, this collection is distilled experience, deliciously preserved." --Minnesota Literature

"Susan Carol Hauser can make the reader who's never been north of the St. Marys River nostalgic for a stand of maples on a frozen day." --Florida Times-Union
