9781856231534: The Permaculture Kitchen: Love Food, Love People, Love the Planet

This is the ultimate introduction to economical, seasonal, and delicious cooking. The Permaculture Kitchen is written by a passionate smallholder and cook who explains how to make tasty meals using seasonal, foraged, homegrown, local, fresh, and free-range produce, including meat, and sustainably caught fish. This is a cookbook for gardeners who love to eat their own produce, and for people who enjoy a weekly veggie box, or supporting their local farmers’ market.

There are ideas here for developing recipes “on the fly” and recipes for meals that can be easily cooked in thirty minutes or less, with additional tips on how to make further dishes from leftovers. Learn how to make stocks, soups, sauces, pizzas, curries, grills, pilafs and paellas, gourmet salads, preserves, and more!

Most recipes include plenty of ideas for using a variety of different ingredients, which can be included or substituted as desired, or when available. There are also vegetarian recipes, and vegetarian and vegan alternatives to meat dishes.

The author, Carl Legge, is a passionate advocate of good food with a low carbon footprint and this book is his first in a series about low impact, local and seasonal gourmet food.

About the Author:

Carl Legge lives with his wife and son on a three-acre smallholding on the rural Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales. In 1997 he resigned from a well-paid corporate job to focus on the smallholding. They grow fruit and vegetables in raised beds, polytunnels, and forest garden areas, and keep chickens. What was subsidized sheep pasture is now a thriving nature reserve which provides Carl and his family with a large proportion of their own food.

Carl is a gourmet cook and blogs regularly at http://www.carllegge.com.

Review:

Despite its title this book isn't about a single room, it about the whole home: the simple, honest, economy of a kitchen is what turns a house into a place with heart. And that all starts with a good meal that enriches the eater as much as their environment. What I like most about this book is how it goes about doing all of this. Carl is a patient and generous teacher and this book teaches us how to make our own recipes as much as it is about following his. Alys Fowler, gardener, author and TV presenter
