A Great Cookbook!,
This review is from: Back to Butter: A Traditional Foods Cookbook - Nourishing Recipes Inspired by Our Ancestors (Paperback)
Molly Chester and her husband own Apricot Land Farms in California. This cookbook she co-authored with her mother, Sandy Schrecengost. The cookbook takes the reader back to a traditional diet using all natural foods that maybe you thought you should avoid ( like butter, eggs, full fat dairy, etc.).
The authors give the reader not only history about the foods but an enormous amount of nutritional information. I was especially interested in the detailed photos and information about various fats one could use in cooking. I had no idea there were so many choices.
You will be able to learn about meats, grains, beans, seeds, cheeses, nuts and how to cook /use them in your food preparations in your own home. The recipes with photos look delicious. Often on the recipe page the authors included suggestions for variations of the same recipe , just changing some of the ingredients.
If you enjoy cooking and learning how to provide healthy meals for you and your family using unprocessed foods, I believe you will find this cookbook an exceptional addition to your cookbook library.
