Book Review and Recipe – The Nourished Kitchen
Jennifer McGruther, of the award-winning Nourished Kitchen, is one of my favorite traditional food bloggers! I’ve admired and enjoyed her recipes – ALL built around nourishing, ancestral foods – these past fews years. And, now, she has published a gorgeous cookbook! The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle (from Ten Speed Press) is destined to be a much-loved and much-used resource in my home. I’ve joyfully added The Nourished Kitchen to my Real Food Carolyn Recommended Reading list.
Jenny’s gorgeous new cookbook, with its deep roots in well-sourced foods, is divided into these chapters:From the Garden From the Pasture From the Range From the Waters From the Fields From the Wild From the Orchard From the Larder
Just reading that chapter list makes me happy. And hungry!
Along with 160+ recipes, Jennifer also includes a glossary of traditional foods/sustainable farming terms, resources, and Real Food advocacy groups.
The Nourished Kitchen: Farm-to-Table Recipes for the Traditional Foods Lifestyle is truly a labor of love and work of art. You WILL be inspired to create these nourishing foods in your own kitchen.
