"This is the first cookbook from Diane Cu and Todd Porter, renowned creators of the immensely popular food writing and photography blog WhiteonRiceCouple.com. Bountiful offers 100 seasonal, simple, and approachable recipes, 90 of which have not been seen on the blog, each featuring a vegetable or fruit as the star of the meal, from Kabocha Squash Stuffed with Pork and Wild Rice to Meyer Lemon Curd and Goat Cheese Strudel. Peppered with personal stories from Porter's childhood on a cattle ranch in Oregon and Cu's journey from Vietnam to the United States, this cookbook shares the authors' beautiful love story as well as their diverse recipes"-- Provided by publisher.
""The food we make and eat is about community, nurturing, and letting others know that we care and that they are loved. In the very beginning of our life as a couple, we didn't have much in the way of money or material belongings. But what we always had was a meal, a platter of cookies, or a pie to share. And we always accepted the same with open arms when someone gave to us something they had made with their own hands. Feeding one another is undeniably a loving to connect."--The introduction It is this passionate sentiment that draws readers to White on Rice Couple, a highly successful cooking and photography blog run by Todd Porter and Diane Cu. The name of the blog comes from their multicultural differences (Todd is from a cattle ranch in North Eastern Oregon and Diane escaped to the United States with her family from Vietnam via a refugee camp in Guam). They started the blog in 2008 and it commands a large presence on the web with almost 500K unique views a month. They are professional photographers and stylists and have photographed and styled many cookbooks together, but this will be the first time they are the source behind the 175 seasonal recipes. Using vegetables and fruit as the star of the show, this cookbook will be chock full of fresh ideas for healthy eating with an emphasis on local and organic as well as some Asian flavors"-- Provided by publisher.
