MARIA RODALE – AUTHOR, SCRATCH: HOME COOKING FOR EVERYONE MADE SIMPLE, FUN, AND TOTALLY DELICIOUS
SCRATCH: Home Cooking for Everyone Made Simple, Fun, and Totally Delicious
Before “natural” became a marketing buzz word and organic gummy bears became “a thing,” the Rodale family was championing the importance of organic and real food. Maria Rodale, CEO and Chairman of Rodale Inc. and granddaughter of company founder, JI Rodale, has been committed to upholding the mission her grandfather embarked on more than 80 years ago—both professionally and personally.
In her first cookbook, SCRATCH: Home Cooking for Everyone Made Simple, Fun, and Totally Delicious, Maria shares the recipes and remembrances that shaped her life. She recounts her childhood living on America’s first official organic farm and growing up in a family business that publishes books and magazines about healthy food, fitness, organic gardening and farming (at the time they were pretty much the only ones doing it). Maria also shares numerous memories of the colorful cast of characters who came to influence her home cooking.
From a young age, Maria found herself drawn to the kitchen and quickly learned that “a good meal unites people.” Maria’s food is a culmination of influences—her farm-to-table roots and Pennsylvania Dutch Heritage; her travels around the world; and the Italian-American family she married into.
SCRATCH is a return to basics: eating and cooking delicious real food that showcases nature’s bounty—it shows how we can get back what’s been lost and nourish our souls in the process.
