Seven-time Grammy winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon Ziggy Marley will release his first cookbook titled Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook: Delicious Meals Made with Whole, Organic Ingredients from the Marley Kitchen on October 11th through Akashic Books.
Inspired by the Jamaican meals Ziggy enjoyed while growing up – with an updated healthy spin – the cookbook features a variety of contributions from family members, including Ziggy’s wife Orly, sister Karen and daughter Judah.
The cookbook also draws inspiration from Ziggy Marley Organics, Ziggy’s own line of hempseeds and flavored coconut oils, which he launched in 2013. It was the positive response to Ziggy Marley Organics that eventually planted the seed for Ziggy to release a cookbook based on the foods of his life. Many of the recipes are vegetarian, vegan and/or gluten-free, from delicious and savory egg dishes, to healthy, nourishing juices, soups, and salads, to classic Jerk Chicken and fish recipes. Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook brings new organic and nutritious recipes to kitchens around the world, intended to promote healthy living with a touch of culture, comfort, and love.
