The Permaculture Kitchen: Love Food, Love People, Love the Planet by Carl Legge
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, home-grown, local, fresh and free range produce, including meat and sustainably caught fish.
This is a cookbook for gardeners and people who enjoy a weekly veggie box or supporting their local farmer’s market. There are ideas here for developing recipes ‘on the fly’ and recipes for meals that can be easily cooked in 30 minutes or less, with additional tips on how to make further dishes from left-overs. 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.
