Anyone who takes the time to shop and cook from scratch wants to make feel-good choices-but with terms like “locavore,” “organic,” and “sustainable” being tossed around so freely, many are confused about how best to feed their families. In his new book SUSTAINABLY DELICIOUS: Making the World a Better Place, One Recipe at a Time (Rodale Books; April 13 2010; Hardcover; $35.00; 256 pages w/ 75 color photographs), best-selling author, restaurateur, Wholesome Wave Foundation founder, and sustainable food-movement pioneer Michel Nischan, cuts through the confusion and shows readers how to prepare food that is good-in every sense of the word.
Nischan has long been an advocate for embracing the most basic of food rules-use what’s readily available, celebrate variety, respect the land, and eschew waste-to create modern, sophisticated food. The 100 recipes featured in SUSTAINABLY DELICIOUS are a testament to Nischan’s respect for America’s culinary and environmental legacy-each one provides a roadmap for delicious wholesome meals and a lesson in how our food choices impact the world around us.
Drawing upon his Midwestern roots and his family’s tradition of creating humble, satisfying meals from seasonal ingredients, the two-time James Beard Foundation award winner transforms even the simplest food into surprising, flavorful feasts: Pork Loin Roast with Dried Fruits and Apple Cider; French Toast with Brown Sugar Bananas; Nantucket Scallop Porridge with Apples and Chestnuts and Homegrown Fried Chicken.
Nischan also includes stories about the farmers, chefs, and others working on the frontlines to safeguard our food systems for future generations. With SUSTAINABLY DELICIOUS, Nischan has created a new kind of cookbook-one that goes beyond local and beyond organic, proving that eating sustainably is not only figuring out what tastes good, but what is good-for the environment, for animals, for farm workers, and for our tables.
Michel Nischan is the best-selling author of Taste: Pure and Simple and with Paul Newman cofounder of Dressing Room: A Homegrown Restaurant, located at the Westport Country Playhouse in Connecticut. As President and CEO of Wholesome Wave, he catalyzes fundamental change in the nation’s food system. Wholesome Wave’s signature “Nourishing Neighborhoods” Double Value Coupon Program doubles the value of food stamp dollars via farm-to-community partnerships. Wholesome Wave programs are currently underway in 12 states, the District of Columbia and in more than 60 markets. He lives in Fairfield, Connecticut with his wife, Lori and their five children.
