Organic Marin is more than a regional cookbook. It also represents an organic movement reverberating around the globe.

The connection between field and farmer, land and table, and food and family translates to the passionate belief that food fosters community. And nowhere is this connection more apparent than in Marin County, California, the birthplace and standard-bearer of American organic farming.

In Organic Marin, 16 of America's most esteemed organic farms share their stories and philosophies alongside 50 mouthwatering organic recipes organized by season and contributed by 25 of the San Francisco Bay Area's most popular organic restaurants.

With recipes for Heirloom Tomato Flat Bread, Seared Ahi Tuna with Asian Slaw, Chicken Fra Diavolo with Fennel and Dandelion Salad, Double Chocolate Bread Pudding, and much more, anyone can create the delicious dishes featured in this beautiful and inspiring organic cookbook.

Proceeds of Organic Marin support Marin Organic's school lunch program, which serves 12,000 lunches a week with food grown in Marin County.
