Check out The Organic Cook’s Bible by Sonoma’s food, wine, and garden author/television personality, Jeff Cox. This book isn’t confined just to produce as it deals with the whole organic food spectrum including: meat, diary, eggs, nuts, oils, and wines. There are also plenty of organic recipes available for free online
Here is a list of several organic cookbooks and food guides to several major cities such as San Francisco Bay Area, NYC, and Chicago:
My boyfriend bought me a great cookbook called Fresh Food Fast for Christmas. It’s all vegetarian recipes, and they’re all arranged by season. The intention is that you cook all of the recipes when the ingredients are fresh. It also heavily emphasizes using organic ingredients as much as possible. See below for more information.
Absolutely! And the list keeps growing as the movement spreads and the benefits of going organic are understood. One of my personal favorites is FOOD 2.O. This simple and easy to read cookbook is written by the executive chef who fed google in Mountain View, Ca. Charlie Ayers now owns his own restaurant in Palo Alto, CA called Calafia where some of the recipes in his book are served. His book not only includes recipes but also short blurbs and easily understood explanations of his “Raw, organic, and fermented” motto. The smoothies and juices are to die for!
I am a big fan of the cookbook Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients. It seems like a lot of times people forget that eating organic food is not the only aspect that is important when it comes to eating. This cookbook really helps me remember other things that are equally important when cooking. The cookbook is also available in a Kindle Edition for those who are especially environmentally conscious.
My favorite organic cookbook is “Vegetables” by Alice Waters, a leader in the slow-food movement. She focuses on using seasonal, organic, local ingredients. She is the owner of the world famous Chez Panise restaurant in Berkeley, California, one of the first restaurants to adopt this philosophy. The great thing about this cookbook is that it is grouped by vegetable, so you can go to a farmer’s market, buy whatever is fresh and then go home and look that vegetable up in the book to find a number of different recipes. Every recipe I have used in this book has produced DELICIOUS food… this is one chef that knows what she’s doing. There is also a dessert cookbook!
I love cooking with Melissa’s Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce: A Guide to Easy-to-Make Dishes with Fresh Organic Fruits and Vegetables by Cathy Thomas, because it provides great, easy recipes for everyday cooking. It’s always an incentive to cook and eat organically when the recipes are easy to make, especially at the end of a long work day!
Yes! Definately check Amazon for cheaper prices compared to major book retailers! There is one called “Food to Live By: The Earthbound Organic Farm Cookbook”. They have recipes for Sweet Corn Chowder, Feta and Mushroom Quiche, Foggy Day Chili and much more. It has great reviews too! You can check online as well for organic recipes.
