In this timely new book, author Darina Allen reconnects you with the cooking skills that missed a generation or two. The book is divided into chapters such as dairy, poultry and eggs, bread, and preserving, and forgotten processes such as smoking mackerel, curing bacon, and making yogurt and butter are explained in the simplest terms. The delicious recipes show you how to use your homemade bounty to its best, and include ideas for using forgotten cuts of meat, baking bread and cakes, and even eating food from the wild. The vegetables and herbs chapter is stuffed with growing tips to satisfy even those with the smallest garden plot or window box, and there are plenty of suggestions for using gluts of vegetables. You'll even discover how to keep a few chickens in your backyard. With more than 700 recipes, this is the definitive modern guide to traditional cooking skills.
