320 pages : color illustrations ; 28 cm

When Ballymaloe's doors opened to students in 1983 there were 15 courses available. Now there are over 100, reflected in the recipes collected here, including curing meat, making gluten-free meals and sushi as well as learning forgotten skills like producing butter and cheese and beekeeping. The book chronicles how the school has been at the forefront of cooking and food trends since its inception, from Darina's championing of the Slow Food movement and her highlighting the importance of using local, seasonal and fresh produce to installing a wood-burning oven and expanding its gardens so students can learn the importance of eating less meat and more vegetables and preserving heirloom varieties of produce. A fascinating insight into Ballymaloe, this is also a history of food over the past thirty years--from a time when Darina couldn't get anything other than pre-packaged, grated Parmesan cheese to one where a local producer makes his own mozzarella.

"A cookbook from the author of the popular website Nourished Kitchen, featuring 175 recipes based on the 'traditional foods' philosophy of eating, which emphasizes whole grains, dairy, red meat, organ meats, and fermented foods. A traditional foods diet celebrates unrefined, whole, and natural foods while avoiding modern, refined ones; it also seeks to prepare them in the same manner as our ancestors, prior to the industrialization of food. The traditional foods diet, based on the findings of Dr. Weston A. Price's anthropological data from the 1930s, suggests that cultures who subsist on native, unrefined, traditionally-prepared foods enjoy better health (with lower rates of infertility, heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune disease) than those who consume a diet of processed foods. This cookbook offers a beautifully illustrated treatment of this nutrient-dense cooking style, with wholesome time-tested recipes including restorative bone broths, revitalizing kombuchas and tonics, and hearty and economical bean and lentil dishes. Contrary to nearly all of today's trendy diets, the traditional foods diet is not a restrictive eating style--it focuses on eating diversely and seasonally. It is more inclusive than the paleo diet and shares the environmental and ethical principles of the farm-to-table movement. Practical sidebars include tutorials on infusing honey, making homemade almond flour, preparing a sourdough starter, and rendering poultry fat. Beyond recipes, The Nourished Kitchen also addresses the larger issues of how modern convenience food bypasses traditional culinary wisdom and the critical importance of how food is sourced and prepared for optimal nutrition"-- Provided by publisher.
