    What a delight to open this book and learn more about organic fruits and vegetables. I saw this book listed on the NPR site as one of the top 10 summer cookbooks. Since following Cathy Thomas’ articles in the Orange County Register I knew I would be in for a treat! She has a way of capturing her readers with a story — and always interesting recipes.

    Little did I know when I ordered it how much I would learn about each item listed. The produce is covered in an alphabetic format making it ever so easy to find information about a specific item. Then, each item starts with the same format: buying and storing, prep and use followed by item availability, serving suggestions and recipes that includes NUTRITIONAL INFORMATION.

    Just browsing through I found some helpful hints, like how to store cilantro. I always find it discouraging when the cilantro spoils in a couple of days. Now I know how to store it so it will last 7 – 10 days. And did you know that using citrus zest from non-organic produce includes the wax. I never thought about that…now I do.

    Another great feature is the listing in the front that includes seasonal availability of produce. Since I plan to give this as a gift for some non-California based family and friends I like that the produce listed is readily available nationwide.

    Get this book for yourself, sit down with an organic seasonal fruit and enjoy the journey. You’ll want to share the book — and the treats you’ll create from it.

    The recipes are simple enough that anyone should be able to make more delicious meals from now on by using Melissa’s Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce.

    If you’re looking for a great guide for selecting, buying, and preparing organic (or even just fresh) produce, this is a wonderful choice. The illustrations are great and you are definitely going to learn a lot from this one.

    Finally a book that shows me how to cooking a full organic meal using accessible and seasonal items that I can find at my local supermarket!

    Greet recipes, beautiful photos and a lot of information I was not aware about regarding the care taken to grow Organic Produce.

    I been reading other organic books, but this is the best yet!

    Written by “the nation’s largest distributor of specialty and organic fruits and vegetables,” //Melissa’s Everyday Cooking with Organic Produce// acts as a guide to incorporating more fresh foods into your diet. Despite being a marketing push for a single business, the reader can easily help their local farmer by heeding the wisdom in this guidebook.

    The text serves as both a cookbook and a how-to guide. While the recipes don’t burst with ingenuity, the how-tos are useful. The book is written alphabetically from apple to turnip. Each section provides tips for buying and storing the produce, how to prepare it, how to use it, the time of year it’s available, nutritional information, and finally, recipes for eating it. The book specifically steers away from nontraditional items, so you’re likely to recognize most of the produce: banana, pineapple, celery, peach, orange, etc. If there are several varieties of a fruit or veggie, like apples and potatoes, the book provides photos and labels to help you distinguish among them. Finally, there are recipes. You’ll find peachy French toast, broccoli mac `n’ cheese, and sweet potato and chicken stew. If you need a basic guide to using produce, this book can get you started.
