Local Produce, Worldly Menu: Cookbook in LA
Were always admiring businesses that follow sustainable practices and bolster local community, which is why Cookbook caught our attention. Located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Echo Park, the greengrocer sells locally and responsibly grown produce, as well as select dry/canned goods, poultry, meats and cheeses. And as the name suggests, Cookbook offers a daily selection of freshly prepared foods derived from a different featured cookbook every week (past favorites have included Ottolenghi and Canal House).

Recently, Cookbook opened No.2, a storefront next door that serves as a classroom for food history lectures and gardening and art classes.
