The Nourished Kitchen by Jennifer McGruther is a combo cookbook and how-to book for learning to live more simply by eating more simply. This does not mean easier but rather eating foods closer to the Earth. This book for instance tells the cook how to make sourdough bread first by telling the reader how to make your own sourdough starter though Ms McGruther also allows using someone else’s starter to help yours out. She tells how to use your own garden produce to nourish your family but also how to make your own butter and render your own lard to make your foods more flavorful than using margarines and shortening would do. You will not realize what you have been missing in your diet until you start eating as God intended His food to taste. You will find that eating the most flavorful foods will not make you fat unless you overeat them. You will also find yourself satisfyingly full and not overeating when you eat this way. You will find yourself enjoying your food and isn’t that one of the most enjoyable parts of living?
I took The Nourished Kitchen to my workplace and have never had so many people from various jobs in my workplace pick up a book of mine and just start thumbing through and start reading it. Then when you figure that this is mainly a cookbook that is most amazing. This book is one that the most people asked where you can get it. If you have ever wondered how to make those foods that your grandma used to make and now no one knows how to make it this is the book for you. If you would like to get your family eating more nutritious foods this is the book for you. Ms McGruther has written a gem and you don’t want to miss out on all this knowledge. I use this book and wish the cover were more easily cleaned as it has food stains all over it.
I received this book from Multnomah Publishing for this review.
