“Many chefs – and their books – pay lip service to the sustainable ideal. This book does more than that. It offers really wonderful recipes for food that is gorgeous and good for both you and the planet. It’s given me so many great ideas.” - Ruth Reichl, former editor of Gourmet and author of Garlic and Sapphires
