Bi-Rite Market's Eat Good Food

Eat Good Food is not only a cookbook containing flavorful, classic recipes, but also a comprehensive grocery shopper’s guide, aiding the home cook in deciphering labels, identifying unique ingredients, and building a great pantry to facilitate great cooking.

The experiences of former chef and owner of San Francisco’s Bi-Rite Market, Sam Mogannam, stand at the backbone of the book, as he explains the importance of the ingredients we use and how we get them, addressing those curiosities we all have, like:

• Why spinach from open bins is better than prepackaged greens
• What the material used to wrap cheese can tell you about the quality of the cheese itself
• How to tell where an olive oil is really from—and why it matters
• What “never ever” programs are, and why you should look for them when buying meat
