    Ripe is first a visual tour of fruits and vegetables, and second a cookbook for what to make with them. The intention is not so much to teach but to inspire.

    The color-coded chapters are clever, but what really got our attention is Rule's quirky, humorous writing... in a whimsical tone, often anthropomorphizing the vegetables as if they were dear friends.

  • NPR by T. Susan Chang

    The recipes are well-chosen representatives that make the most of their featured ingredient, and most...deliver high flavor with an absolute minimum of stress.

    If Skittles hadn't already trademarked the slogan "taste the rainbow," we would be nominating it for Ripe (...) Ripe is a cookbook that takes you on a colorful journey through the world of produce.

Publishers Text

Although they certainly are good for you, leave a lighter footprint on the earth, and cost a lot less than a pound of tenderloin, one should consume green beans and favas, pomegranates and key limes, Swiss chard and honeydew because they’re gorgeous, flavorful, versatile, and fantastically delicious.

A stunning visual exploration of common fruits and vegetables organized by color, Ripe is a cookbook that whets the appetite and excites the senses through 150 beautiful full-color photographs, breezy narrative essays, and 75 delicious recipes in chapters Red (beets, blood oranges, and cherries), Orange (apricot, butternut squash, carrots), Yellow (banana, corn, and pineapple), Green (asparagus, bok choy, and edamame), Purple and Blue (blueberries, eggplant, and plums), and White (bosc pears, endive, and jicama).
