MARIO BATALI, Chef/Author:

“At all of my restaurants, we strive to shorten the time and distance any ingredient spends from the soil, water, or air to the plate. This notion is exactly what Harvest to Heat celebrates--eating local, artisanal products made from farmers who have been doing what they do--perfectly--their whole lives.”

DAVID CHANG, Momofuku:

"Harvest to Heat attests to the often-forgotten fact that no matter our styles of cooking, be it rustic Italian or modern French, we are nothing without the producers, artisans, and craftspeople that provide our ingredients through their labors of love.”

MICHEL NISCHAN, Owner of Dressing Room and CEO of The Wholesome Wave Foundation:

“Anyone who reads Harvest to Heat will be as compelled to cook from it as I am. I will cook from this book knowing that those who contributed are making a delicious, sustainable, and thoughtful community-based food future a tangible reality. I will not talk. I will cook. And then I will shout with joy: we have arrived!”

CAT CORA, Celebrity Chef, Author, AND Philanthropist:

“Harvest to Heat is a timely book that brings together the artisans of the fields and the kitchen to share the results of their skills and talents with the world. The important connection between farmer, chef, and artisan is paramount in continuing the richness of the “farm to table” experience we all enjoy when we sit down to a meal. And the stories Harvest to Heat brings to us are a delicious example of how memories are made through food.”

NELL NEWMAN, President of Newman's Own Organics:

Harvest to Heat highlights the collaboration between farmers, chefs, and artisans, making this cookbook unique. It is a fabulous mix of soulful stories, gorgeous photos, and inspiring recipes that bring together all aspects of creating a truly fine meal. Harvest to Heat honors the many aspects of enjoying great food while not ignoring the planet, the animals, or the people that bring us these gifts.”

PADMA LAKSHMI, Emmy-Nominated Host of Tof Chef and Author:

“Harvest to Heat is a sumptuous and sensually beautiful book; from soil to stove, it features the very best our great land has to offer. With earthy and delicious recipes, Harvest to Heat is an instant classic for any kitchen library and a book you will grow to love more and more as the years wear on and the meals pile up.”
