About The Real Food Cookbook:

Nina Planck (like so many others) used to suffer under the impression that a low-fat, vegetarian diet (with perhaps a bit of fish), was the only healthy one. But as she began organizing farmers’ markets—alongside heaps of local produce, grass-fed beef, heritage pork, wild venison, raw-milk cheeses, and high-fat butter—she realized it was time for her to not just eat these traditional foods, but learn to cook them. She did, with happy results. Her health was never better, and her meals never more delicious. She was soon gathering the research to support the case for traditional foods in her best-selling book Real Food: What to Eat and Why, singled out by David Kamp as “The antidote to the faddists, alarmists, and kooks who all too often dominate American food discourse.”

In The Real Food Cookbook, Nina provides readers with 150 recipes that reflect her background as a farmer’s daughter, former vegetarian, farmers’ market entrepreneur, and home cook. They reflect the rhythms of her life with a cheesemonger husband (Rob Kaufelt, proprietor of Murray’s Cheese) and three small children. The ingredients are timeless, not trendy; the methods classic rather than rule-breaking. Above all, these are the dishes Nina loves, made with real food.
