Welcome to the world of Diane Cu and Todd Porter, the renowned creators of the immensely popular photography, food-writing, and lifestyle blog WhiteonRiceCouple.com. Their first book, Bountiful: Recipes Inspired by Our Garden, offers 100 seasonal, flavorful, and approachable recipes (90 of which have never been published), each featuring a vegetable or fruit as the star of the meal. Inspired by their love of cooking, growing vegetables, and the more than 38 fruit trees in their suburban garden, Todd and Diane share recipes that are fresh and seasonally simple, such as Spicy Roasted Cauliflower, Wilted Mizuna Mustard Salad with Shrimp, Roasted Pluots with Brown Sugar and Balsamic Vinegar, and a Casanova Cocktail. Breathtaking full-color photography accompanies nearly every dish.
Peppered with personal stories from Todd’s childhood on a cattle ranch in Oregon and Diane’s journey from Vietnam to the United States, this cookbook shares the couple’s beautiful love story as well as their diverse recipes, reflecting the importance of sharing a home-cooked meal with those you love.
