After the informative and heartfelt opening chapters to her wonderful book Your Organic Kitchen, Jesse lovingly guides us through the seasons with delicious and easy-to-prepare recipes.

"Nothing is more important than buying food from people who take care of the land for future generations. These farmers are the ones who produce the fruits and vegetables that make these recipes written by Jesse even more irresistible."--Alice Waters, Chez Panisse, Berkeley, California
"When I first moved to California, the Flea St. Café was one of the restaurants I sought out because of Jesse Cool's culinary reputation and her devotion to sustainable agriculture. Her food was always delicious and homey with a unique style all its own. This cookbook not only embodies the essence of her creativity but it is also a wonderful source for anyone interested in sustainable and organic agriculture."--Nell Newman, Newman's Own Organics: The Second Generation
