"A rich and varied compilation of recipes sure to become staples in many homes, Shaffer has managed to craft a Joy of Cooking for the Whole Foods generation."
"A long-overdue and important offspring of the legendary enterprise by the same name."

In 2003, the Mustard Seed Market & Café became Ohio's first certified organic retailer. Founded in 1981, this shopping and dining establishment celebrates good food, fresh ingredients, and sustainable living. This encouraging and easy-to-follow book includes 250 natural brunch, soup, salad, fish, meat, vegetable, bean, grain, pasta, drink, and sweets recipes. Indexes for gluten-free and vegetarian recipes are also included, as well as a bounty of full-color photographs that evoke the Mustard Seed commitment to organic farming, natural food, and healthy lifestyles. Mustard Seed cooking school and bakery director Bev Shaffer compiled this cookbook to share Mustard Seed's motto of "fresh food and spoiled customers" with the rest of the nation.
