Join Us December 10th at noon for our live Chat with Jennifer McGruther of the Nourished Kitchen.
A food educator and advocate for sustainable agriculture, Jennifer McGruther founded the ever popular food blog Nourished Kitchen before embarking upon her latest endeavor. Based on the research of Weston A. Price, McGruther's The Nourished Kitchenfocuses on nutrient-dense, traditional foods – or, as author McGruther explains, the foods of our great-great-grandmothers. Beautifully photographed, this cookbook showcases traditional foods in 160 simple yet refined recipes.
Embracing the bounty of gardens and farms, harvested locally and prepared at home, the idea is to eat mindfully while celebrating the connection between the farmer, the cook, and ultimately, the eater. Full of bones, organs, and muscle meat galore along with raw dairy and fats such as lard and butter, The Nourished Kitchen fully embraces old-world culinary traditions. From the divinely straightforward creamed collard greens made with butter, greens, heavy cream, onion, and nutmeg to the more complex rabbit pie with bacon and chanterelles, the book speaks to all levels of culinary prowess.
