This is a wonderfully comprehensive guide to all the old fashioned techniques such as butter churning, oak smoking, foraging, keeping hens, preserving fruit…. I’m in danger of going all misty eyed. This is an utterly charming, and infinitely useful book from the world- renowned Ballymaloe stable and Darina Allen. A gigantic and memorable contribution to food history.
Winner of the Andre Simon Award. With over 700 recipes.
In this much-needed new book, which has already sought high appraisal by winning the Andre Simon Food Book Award, Darina reconnects you with the cooking skills that missed a generation or two. The book is divided into chapters such as 'Dairy', 'Hens and Eggs', 'Bread and Preserving' and forgotten processes such as smoking mackerel, curing bacon and making yogurt and butter which are explained in the simplest terms.
The delicious recipes show you how to use your homemade produce to its best, and include ideas for using forgotten cut of meat, baking bread and cakes and even eating food from the wild. The Vegetables and Herbs chapter is stuffed with growing tips to satisfy even those with the smallest garden plot or window box, and there are plenty of suggestions for using gluts of vegetables.
You'll even discover how to keep a few chickens in the garden. With over 700 recipes, this is the definitive modern guide to traditional cookery skills.
