The title says it all!
Down to Earth (Red Bank, NJ), owned by authors Lacey Sher and Gail Doherty, was my favorite restaurant. One day in the spring 2007, I was in the neighborhood, went there to grab some lunch, and found out it was closed! So you can imagine how delighted I was when they reopened in a new Red Bank location last year, under the name Good Karma Cafe.
But I just had to re-create these incredible recipes at home. So I bought the book, and now I treat my family (including my three kids) to the all the cruelty-free, guilt-free fare I've come to know and love. My eleven-year-old daughter, a budding environmentalist, is always over my shoulder helping me try out new recipes. My twin sons are (thankfully) thinking outside the (blue mac and cheese) box. And even my partner, a die-hard meat-and-potatoes guy, is hooked.
Be warned, however, that some of the ingredients are a little harder to come by than others (coconut oil, no problem - umeboshi paste, on the other hand, more of a challenge). Nevertheless, from innovative raw foods to meatless comfort classics, this has become my favorite cookbook by far.
