Following the precepts of dentist-nutritionist Weston Price, McGruther has developed a system for healthy eating based on lots of vegetables and grains as cooked and preserved on early twentieth-century American farms. What differentiates McGruther’s approach from other regimens is her unabashed advocacy of animal fats. She is especially fond of cooking foods in lard, noting its fat-content profile’s similarity to that of olive oil. When sweetness is an object, McGruther suggests replacing refined sugar with honey, molasses, sorghum, or maple syrup. Bread recipes specify ancient grains such as einkorn, and leavening comes from sourdough. She favors making one’s own butter when possible, and she recommends drinking that by-product of churning: buttermilk. Her meat dishes will satisfy carnivores, whether with a rich rabbit pie studded with bacon and chanterelles or with a rare-roasted elk steak. McGruther advocates sustainable agriculture, and she enthusiastically preserves summer’s bounty through fermentation for pickles, sauerkraut, and relishes. --Mark Knoblauch
“I love this book. It’s gorgeous, informed, and filled with wisdom based on old ways and common sense—the wisdom that we crave. At the same time, it is filled with flavor and style. Jennifer’s food is food that I already love, plus there’s new food I am ready to try.”
—Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy
“Jennifer McGruther brings a wealth of farmhouse wisdom to life in The Nourished Kitchen. Her northern European culinary perspective is a perfect match for her home in the mountains of Colorado, a beacon for how to eat seasonally and locally in a place where the snow flies six months of the year.”
—Hank Shaw, author of Duck, Duck, Goose and creator of the award-winning blog Hunter Angler Gardener Cook
“Jennifer McGruther’s road map to culinary integrity delivers us from wandering through the bewilderment of industrial, nutrient-deficient, supermarket detours. The Nourished Kitchen is as essential in the modern kitchen as a slow cooker and electric mixer.”
—Joel Salatin, farmer, lecturer, and author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal
“What an inspirational book! Jennifer McGruther takes us from the local community and the garden to the kitchen and the table with a collection of delicious, nutritious, traditionally prepared recipes. The Nourished Kitchen deserves a place of honor on your kitchen counter.”
—Sally Fallon Morell, president, the Weston A. Price Foundation
“Jennifer McGruther is great at showing how healthy, nourishing food can be mouthwatering and delicious. This book is full of practical wisdom and inspired recipes (including lots of fermented foods and beverages). Jennifer makes you want to get into the kitchen.”
—Sandor Ellix Katz, author of The Art of Fermentation and Wild Fermentation

When I first discovered McGruther's website of the same name a number of years ago, it was a revelation in my life. I suddenly had words to explain why we wanted to eat seasonally and why I felt better when my diet had plenty of traditional fats. My family's food choices suddenly had deep meaning and – dare I say – JOY in them and we reveled in discovering the hidden sources of grass-fed meats, raw dairy, and fresh produce in our area.
Reading through The Nourished Kitchen cookbook when it arrived a few weeks ago, I was transported back to the eager anticipation and exuberance of those early days in our family's journey. This book is pure inspiration. All I wanted to do was get in the kitchen to cook.
And perhaps the best testimony to the book is that in the few weeks we've already had the book, I've cooked from it nearly every day - not just because I love the recipes, but because my children already have chosen favorite recipes and request them!
I will be purchasing several more copies of this book through the years to give as gifts. As much as I heartily love the standard cookbooks that are given at weddings, this will become my go-to wedding gift, as what better gift could you give to a new couple than GOOD FOOD to cook and eat together?
My husband is over-joyed when he comes home from work and he hears that I have made McGruther's meatloaf, her chicken liver pâté or her creamy and oh so satisfying oyster soup. "What a wonderful surprise," he says with a big smile. At any given time I have a Jennifer McGruther project going on. Bone broth simmering on my stove, homemade yogurt pleasantly souring in my stove heated by only the oven light, and right now, I have her sauerkraut fermenting in a gallon-size glass jug on my counter top.
Thank you, Jennifer! Traditional foods have never tasted so good or have been so easy.
(Also, almost all of the recipes are accompanied by lovely and artistic photos.)
The author's knowledge about farm life and the way we used to eat and drink is so right on the mark. I love her stories that she instills into every page and history of different foods. I have started pricing and shopping for some the products she speaks about. I found and bought some Ghee at Whole Foods and plan to make it myself as well at a later time. I priced pastured pork, beef and chicken as well as wild caught fish there but wanted to compare prices with Trader Joe's and Atkins Farm first. We also have local farmers and Co-ops which I will be making a trip to visit with them and discuss some potential purchases.
I look forward to preparing some of the recipes in the very near future. I told my husband after receiving this book that he is a very lucky man. I don't think he knew what I was referring to but we do!
The author also has a fantastic website as well, [...] be sure to sign up for her newsletter and additional tips and recipes.
You can pretty much throw out all your other cookbooks and just keep this one! I love you Jennifer McGruther!
