About this Item

Trade paperback, oversized, 8.5x11in. Glued binding. 368 p. Color wraparound photo cover: the farm. Audience: General/trade. Cooking: Compiled from friends, fantasy, and formidable family fare, Vermont's Virginia Bentley presents here, in a neat hand-written style, a warm, productive approach to cooking for novices to experienced. She is creative, responsive to the abundance around her, and encouraging. Simply a classic by the author of "Let Herbs Do It." Her Household hints section includes "Plants that repel pests, " Housebuilding and remodeling, and "Dinner for Diplomats, " a menu. Mint, did 'ya know? , will repel mice and members of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, whose early zealousness ripped up beds of mint, associating it with bourbon. Her ingredients are not always fresh, but often canned or frozen; and her advice is intelligent and both time-honored and practical because it works. Also, expect the unexpected. Enjoy her notes. Very good. No dust jacket as issued. Clearly well-used: spine creasing, food prep spots, short page corner turn-downs. Bookseller Inventory # Alibris.110010003867

Store Description

Hi, Folks ... Mom said, 'I need to downsize'. Moving to assisted living, what she couldn't take included 8,000-plus books & records. A decade later, my upcountry barn is bursting. Books multiply as others recycle priorities. I now have 30,000 or more books (not yet all online) looking for good homes, and my learning curve has been a roller coaster. I celebrate word-crafters, thought-tumblers, laughter ... the arts of communication at every turn. I preserve, protect, and share. I am also Hedgehog Publishing, 'Words & Pictures by & for Folks with Prickly Backs, Soft Bellies, & Small Brains'.
