What are people saying about Bounty from the Box: The CSA Farm Cookbook?
As a restaurateur who also happens to own a farm and happens to be married to the Farmer-in-Chief, Jackie, it’s my belief that there’s really nothing more important than knowing where your food comes from. Whether you support farmers by shopping your local farmers markets or by signing up for a CSA box (Community Supported Agriculture), you’ll need to know how to cook that glorious bounty. My friend Mi Ae comes to the rescue with this terrific book filled with healthy and delicious recipes for all the roots, leafs, stalks, herbs, fruits, and tubers that come packed in that wondrous weekly box.

Forget about figuring out what to do with the fifth week of zucchini from your CSA—this book is indispensable for anyone who buys produce. One of my criteria for judging a cookbook, and the reason I prefer a real book to my e-reader, is the index. I don’t think I’ve ever raved about an index, but Mi Ae has one that’s just recipes by ingredients. So, if you have a mess of arugula and want to do something with it, there are a bunch of recipes that use arugula giving you lots to choose from. The only downside to this index? You’ll see at least another four things you’d like to try.

I love the information and format of this cookbook because it breaks down the vegetables in simple paragraphs, from history, to trimming and cleaning, to a variety of cooking methods that are easy to follow—especially when it is a NEW vegetable to me. I feel empowered to break out of my routine recipes that I have been cooking for years and venturing out into new territory of delicious and nutritious foods.
