This week I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for Anna Getty's new cookbook called "Easy Green Organic." I never know what to expect when I hear the label organic cooking. Will that mean tofu that is overly flavored and dry or just lots of leafy greens thrown together in a salad? I'm happy to report that Anna Getty makes organic cooking delicious and flavorful. Flavorful is the key ingredient here. I can say that with assurance since this book party included samplings of the recipes from the book. Guests feasted on arugula and strawberry salad with lemon vinaigrette dressing, tofu with soba noodles in an Asian flavored sauce plus sliced goat cheese frittata on crostini and delicious cookies. Anna Getty's cooking is the type you return to the buffet table for to eat another helping. I had the opportunity to chat with Anna at the signing and ask her about how she cooks, and how she formulated her delicious recipes.
If you live in Los Angeles, you might want to make a trip to the site of Anna's book party, Rolling Greens nursey in West Hollywood on Beverly Dr. Rolling Greens offers an amazing collection of plants, flowers, shabby chic furnishings and books. It was the perfect setting for an eco-friendly event. Check out the picture below, and you will see this is not your typical nursery. Anna also received support from her actor brother Balthazar Getty who was in attendance.
To learn more about organic living, check out Anna Getty's cookbook. Its well priced at $24.95 and features beautiful photographs of all the dishes by Dan Goldberg. I like to look at the pictures to decide what looks most appetizing before investing cooking time!
