Wonderful family meals,
This review is from: Back to Butter: A Traditional Foods Cookbook - Nourishing Recipes Inspired by Our Ancestors (Paperback)
I am quite the cookbook collector and I have found myself reaching for BACK TO BUTTER more and more as I'm planning our family dinners. I love that it is thoroughly researched and offers you tips and basic preparations to get the most nutrients out of your ingredients. I also really appreciate the focus on the quality of the ingredients and the easy to follow foolproof recipes. So far I have made the nourishing stock which I have been using to cook for us and our 11 month old baby, the brussels sprouts which were a total hit!, the shrimp and mango salsa, the coconut beans, meatloaf and plain black beans. I have found every recipe clearly detailed with easy to follow steps, tips and variations and the results delicious for the whole family. But probably what I like the most about this cookbook are the techniques which are different from what I used to do (such as cooking stock for 12 to 24h or a different way of soaking beans) because not only are they very well explained and justified (they help make the food more nourishing and easier to digests) but also taste even more delicious. It's a wonderful addition to my cookbook library and I know we'll have many more delicious dinners ahead!
