Product Details


“Rodale, CEO and chair of Rodale Inc., believes that anyone can learn to cook, and this title shares useful techniques and necessary instruction for beginners. The recipes are designed to deliver tasty meals using real food in the simplest way possible, and Rodale appears to have hit her mark. This is not a trendy health-focused cookbook; it is a book that reflects the way Rodale was raised and the way she cooks for her own family. Rodale begins with basics before moving on to the more complex recipes. The first chapter, “Rise & Shine,” begins with silky buttered eggs and ends with a breakfast quiche, with a whole spectrum of recipes sandwiched between. Salad dressings, stocks, homemade pasta, and even homemade Italian sausage are covered in other chapters. This is a basic cookbook that contains some interesting and special dishes, such as Australian damper and dip, a quick campfire bread and curry dish that originally called for kangaroo (Rodale uses bison), and Aussie ANZAC biscuits. This down-to-earth, totally accessible cookbook will take any cook from breakfast to dessert.

“Maria Rodale is a bonafide boss—she’s a successful CEO, busy mom, and kick-ass home cook whose amazing new book proves that making meals from scratch—using real food and fresh ingredients—doesn’t have to be difficult, boring or time-consuming. Whether you need some weeknight “dinner-spiration” or want to give this as a gift to the reluctant cook in your life (nudge, nudge), Scratch is sure to deliver.”
Jillian Michaels, celebrity fitness trainer and New York Times bestselling author of Unlimited, Master Your Metabolism, and Making the Cut

“Rodale has always been a big proponent of organic and healthy cooking, but this book brings it back to basics, with tantalizingly simple recipes calling for fresh, seasonal ingredients, ranging from salad dressings to sauces to full dinners. Millennials who are just jumping on the meal-prep and planning bandwagon can certainly benefit from (or at least be inspired by) Rodale’s wide range of dishes.”
Melissa Kravitz, Paste Magazine

“Maria Rodale’s book, Scratch, is a wonderful collection of recipes, inter-woven with heartwarming stories of family. The flavors are simple and clean yet comforting and cozy; exactly what I look for in a cookbook.”
—Adrianna Adarme, author of The Year of Cozy and blogger at A Cozy Kitchen

“The beautifully photographed and designed book is full of approachable, easy recipes for any level cook.”
—The Morning Call
