Her first was Vegetarian Planet, which sold 200,000 copies, the second, Entertaining for a Veggie Planet, won the 2004 IACP Award (formerly Julia Child award) in the Healthy and Special Diet category. Her third cookbook, Wild Flavors (Chelsea Green Publishing), released in the fall of 2011 was nominated for an IACP award in the Food Matters category, and celebrates 46 edible herbs and weeds and the eco-conscious Eva Sommaripa who grows them. In 2011, Didi collaborated with Project Bread writing a cookbook entitled “Lets Cook Healthy School Meals”for public school cafeterias throughout New England. It was published in the fall of 2013.
