Publisher's Description

Eat fruits and vegetables not because you’re told you should, but because you want them in every sense of the word. Because they are beautiful. And satisfying. And you desire their freshness, flavor, and simplicity. That’s why Ripe is arranged by color, not season.
 
Author and food writer Cheryl Sternman Rule, who is also the voice behind the popular blog 5 Second Rule, and award-winning food photographer Paulette Phlipot, have teamed up to bring inspiration to hungry home cooks. Their goal is not to deliver another lecture on eating for the sake of nutrition or environmental stewardship (though they affirm that both are important), but to tempt others to "embrace the vegetable, behold the fruit" because these foods are versatile, gorgeous, and taste terrific. Starting with red and progressing towards a calmer white, Ripe is arranged by color to showcase the lush, natural beauty of the following fruits and vegetables:
  • RED: beets, blood oranges, cherries, cranberries, grapefruit, pomegranate, radicchio, radish, raspberries, red apples, red bell peppers, rhubarb, strawberries, tomatoes, and watermelon
  • ORANGE: apricot, butternut squash, carrots, clementines, kumquats, mangoes, nectarines, papaya, peaches, persimmon, pumpkin, and yams
  • YELLOW: banana, corn, lemon, pineapple, pomelo, squash blossoms, and yellow onions
  • GREEN: green apples, artichokes, asparagus, avocado, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, celery, cucumber, edamame, fava beans, fennel, green beans, honeydew, kale, kiwi, leeks, lime, peas, spinach, swiss chard, watercress, and zucchini
  • PURPLE and Blue: blackberries, blueberries, eggplant, figs, plums, purple cabbage, purple grapes, red leaf lettuce, and red onion
  • WHITE: bosc pears, cauliflower, coconut, endive, garlic, jicama, mushrooms, parsnips, potatoes, and turnip
Each fruit and vegetable is accompanied by a lighthearted essay, breathtaking photography, and one showcase recipe, along with three "quick-hit" recipe ideas. With 150 photos and 75 recipes, this unique cookbook will quicken your pulse and leave you very, very hungry.

Publisher's Weekly

Rule, a noted food writer and blogger, offers a lovely and gorgeous tribute to vegetables and fruits everywhere in this unusual cookbook. Organized by color rather than season or meal type, to the presentation aims to excite readers about the beauty and appealing tastes of everything from pomegranates and clementines to artichokes and spinach. Recipes include witty and whimsical head notes that provide tips for preparing and serving. Rule also lists combinations of just a few ingredients for simple uses of each item but unfortunately doesnÂ’t include measurements, which are vital for making dishes such as frozen yogurt and tea bread. Her full recipes, however, are mouthwatering, from her chocolate-flecked banana buttermilk pancakes to a caramelized onion asiago tart to polenta-stuffed chard with bubbly parmesan. While she includes a fair share of salad options, including kumquat arugula salad with currant-walnut vinaigrette, she does showcase a wide variety of other uses, such as peach mascarpone flatbreads and carrot soup with garam masala cream. Recipes are vegetarian, but few will miss the meat in these flavorful dishes. Chock-full of delectable photographs that whet the appetite, this collection will tantalize and educate on the many appealing ways vegetables and fruits can nourish and sustain.

Editorial Reviews

Alice Waters, author of The Art of Simple Food and founder of the Edible Schoolyard.
"The most convincing argument for eating fresh, organic, local food is discovering the peak ripeness of a fruit or vegetable at the farmer’s market or in your own garden. Ripe teaches you how to choose your ingredients and cook them so their true flavor shines through."

Heidi Swanson, author of Super Natural Every Day and 101 Cookbooks.com
"Ripe is first-and-foremost a celebration of all the wonderful facets of good produce (by a person who very clearly loves it). Cheryl’s flavor combinations impress me—Pomegranate Clove Thumbprint Cookies, Radish Olive Crostini, Persimmon Apple Radicchio Stacks, and Maple Pomelo Parfaits. This is a beautiful cookbook full of wonderful, inspiring ideas that are sure to be warmly welcomed into many kitchens."

Tara Mataraza Desmond, co-author of Almost Meatless

BookPage
"Ripe: A Fresh, Colorful Approach to Fruits and Vegetables by Cheryl Sternman Rule, with fabulous color photos by Paulette Phlipot, is organized in a uniquely inviting and liberating way—by color. Cheryl figures that most of us know that we should be eating more fruits and veggies, and most of us understand why. So, her intent is not to preach about a peach, but to use Mother Nature’s vivid paint box to spark your imagination. The photos alone will make you reach for that dark red head of radicchio, green-leafed bok choy or orange-hued papaya…"
