About the book
Todd Porter and Diane Cu are photographers who publish the immensely popular food, gardening, and lifestyle blog WhiteonRiceCouple.com. Inspired by their love of cooking, growing vegetables and over 38 fruit trees in their suburban garden, Todd and Diane love sharing recipes that are fresh and seasonally simple. Their cookbook, Bountiful ,offers 100 seasonal, flavorful, 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. Blueberry Frangipane Tarts, Wilted Mizuna Shrimp Salad, Blood Orange Bars and Gin Cocktail with Pomegranate & Grapefruit are just a few examples of recipes that are inspired from their garden bounty.  

Peppered with personal stories from Todd's childhood on a cattle ranch in Oregon and Diane's journey from Vietnam to the United States, this cookbook shares the couples' beautiful love story as well as their diverse recipes that reflects their love of fresh and healthy produce, seasonally ripe fruit and sharing a home cooked meal with those you love.
Praise for Bountiful:

“It’s always nice to see power food bloggers put out cookbooks that are a print manifestation of what drew readers to their websites in the first place.” —Austin American-Statesman

"This book walks a direct line of inspiration from Todd and Diane's garden to a beautiful collection of produce-forward recipes. It captures the vitality of simply prepared, seasonal ingredients (whether you grow them or buy them), and their enthusiasm is infectious."
-- Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day

"Brillat-Savarin famously wrote, 'Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you who you are.' The California corollary to this would be 'Tell me what you grow and I'll tell you what you eat.' For so many of us, our kitchens are inextricably linked to our gardens and nobody has captured this union better than Todd Porter and Diane Cu in their perfectly named new book Bountiful."
-- Russ Parsons, food editor for the Los Angeles Times

"There has never been a book more aptly named than Bountiful. Bursting at the seams with lush, inviting photographs and inspired seasonal recipes, this is a cookbook you'll turn to over and over, from summer to winter and back again. The only problem, as far as I can see, is where to start: the savory butternut squash crumble, the honeydew salad with riesling and mint, or maybe the blood orange bars with a brown butter crust?"
-- Molly Wizenberg, author of A Homemade Life
