James Beard Award FINALIST 2008


“In Super Natural Cooking, Swanson not only goes a long way toward helping ‘whole’ foods shed their stale, hippie stigma but also makes a strong case for putting natural foods at the center of an emerging, modern, global cuisine. Her seductive recipes, like lime-bathed peanut salad and an updated (almost guilt-free) take on the classic Girl Scout Thin Mint cookie, reach out to cooks who want to eat smart but still do it in style.”

Super Natural Cooking isn’t just any other cookbook; it’s meant to inspire and educate, utilizing natural and native ingredients and worldly flavors . . . A great addition to your culinary library as you expand your definition of healthy cooking.”
–Healing Lifestyles & Spas

“A good, solid guide to natural foods, ingredients, and how to use them without the stigma of this food being only boring, bland steamed vegetables and tofu. You’ll like her style and simple recipes along with some beautiful photos. Simplicity and ease are great assets of this book.”
–South Florida Sun-Sentinel

“Looking for new ways to eat more naturally and healthfully? Super Natural Cooking is full of good ways to expand your use of whole and natural ingredients.”
–Cincinnati Enquirer

Super Natural Cooking provides not just recipes and advice, but a new perspective on food and how to eat what you should.”
–Baltimore Sun

“At last a cookbook is coming that makes natural food appear glamorous and desirable.”
–UPI (United Press International) Eat to Live column

“[T]he book’s layout is urbane, the photos lush, the recipes modern and sophisticated. The teff-and-tofu crowd, it seems, has gone high-gloss.”
–Houston Chronicle
