ORGANIC FOOD SHOPPER'S GUIDE

JEFF COX    Book Number: 75140    Product format: Paperback

Organic food has never been more popular, more widely available and more competitively priced. It tastes better, is more nutritious and is better for the environment in many ways. There are four main reasons for this. Firstly organic growers are primarily concerned about quality, so they grow varieties based on their flavour and nutritional values, not shelf life and transportability. Secondly, these flavoursome crops are those that benefit most from organic means of soil preparation and fertilisation, which in turn boosts flavour and crop quality. Thirdly, organic food - all food in fact - tastes best when freshest, so a prime goal of the organic producer is to keep the distance and thus transport costs and carbon emissions between the farm and your plate to a minimum. Fourthly natural, biodegradable fertilisers and no growth hormones, antibiotics or genetic modification ensures that the young and the vulnerable are not eating substances that could be injurious to health. Jeff Cox, author of 17 books on the subject, shows us how to select the freshest, tastiest varieties, what to look for when shopping, how to best handle produce at home for superlative results. He profiles over 100 foods - fruit, nuts, veg, herbs, dairy, eggs, meat and more - and provides at-a-glance advice on peak seasons, nutrition, best varieties (mainly U.S.) and more detailed facts on preparation, storage, complimentary flavours and over 100 recipes and dozens of cooking tips. 310pp softback.
