"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
