She shows you the advantages and pleasures of cooking seasonally and making organic products for you and your family’s health and happiness. Learn how to be resourceful, creative and inspired by what is seasonal and close to hand for a 100% organic home.

Make your own:

• Main meals, sides, soups and salads

Store cupboard ingredients like flavoured salts, vinegars, herb mixes, essences

• Drinks (including cordials, teas and liqueurs)

Soaps, balms, cleansers, toothpastes, flower papers, and much more!

There are lots of original ideas for using veggie boxes, local stores and markets to buy quality produce, so you don’t even need a garden to make these plant based recipes.

This wonderful book is an essential reference for anyone who wants to live in a more sustainable way. It is just packed with environmentally friendly, plastic-free ideas covering every aspect of modern living from household cleaners and home-made cosmetics to super-delicious recipes using easy to source ingredients (do try the home-made baked beans). Many of her ideas are highly original, some have been around for centuries; Stephanie pulls them all together in one fantastic volume. Established ideas are brought bang up to date and shown to be just as relevant today a they ever were. We simply can’t continue to live in the unsustainable way we currently do; this book can help us all to do our bit and to have fun at the same time.
