Using lard in cooking dates at least as far back as the 1300s. It is prized by pastry chefs today, and it is an excellent cooking fat because it burns at a very high temperature and tends not to smoke as heavily as many other fats and oils do. Rediscovered along with other healthful animal fats in the 1990s, lard is once again embraced by chefs and enlightened health-care professionals and dietitians.
Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother's Secret Ingredient offers you the opportunity to cook like your grandmother, while incorporating good animal fat into your diet once again. Lard is the key to the wonders that came from Grandma's kitchen, and with lard, you can turn out stellar Beef Wellington, Bierocks, or crispy Southern Fried Chicken. Serving your family the 150 treats you enjoyed in your younger days when you visited your grandparents' farm is as easy as flipping a page in this great cookbook. Try your hand at creating fluffy Grandma's Homemade Biscuits, tasty Spanish Corn Bread, delectable Fried Okra, sweet Chocolate Kraut Cake, a Perfect Pastry piecrust for a delicious Butterscotch Peach Pie, or Rhubarb Dumplings.
You will never regret adding Lard: The Lost Art of Cooking with Your Grandmother's Secret Ingredient to your cookbook collection. Don't be afraid to bring a little lard back to the table; your taste buds will be glad you did.

Whether you’re just discovering raw foods or already well-versed in kimchee and wheatgrass, this revised edition of The Raw Truthcombines a wealth of raw foods know-how with a diverse array of delicious recipes. This essential reference offers an extensive primer on the benefits of raw foods, the four living food groups (fresh, sprouted, cultured, and dehydrated), specialty ingredients, and helpful kitchen tools.
Raw foods pioneer Jeremy A. Safron explains in simple terms how life promotes life with a raw diet. When vital enzymes essential to digestion have not been destroyed by heat or processing, the uncooked foods provide our bodies with energy and nutrition quickly and efficiently. This leads to enhanced vitality, increased detoxification, and improved well-being.
But these foods don’t merely offer health-giving properties—they also form the basis of recipes that are easy to make and packed with flavor. Safron shares his take on simple smoothies and drinks like Thin Mint and Mellow Melon, quick soups like Tom Yum and Cucumber-Dill, hearty entrées like Falafel, Lasagna, and Thai Curry, and rich desserts like Coconut Custard and Carob-Hazelnut Torte. Many of these recipes are customer favorites from Safron’s Raw Experience restaurants, which were renowned for their creative menus and valued as education centers for the global raw movement. With nearly 200 recipes and information on transitioning to a raw foods diet, The Raw Truth is a comprehensive guide to a vibrant, healthy, and sustainable lifestyle.
Pizza, Pancakes, French Toast, Lasagna, Ice Cream, Brownies—you thought they were off-limits forever but now they're back on the menu!
The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen offers more than 150 flavor-packed recipes created especially for those who must avoid dairy and gluten in their diets—proving that you no longer have to abandon the foods you love, even when you do have to give up the dairy and gluten that doesn’t love you.
Denise Jardine's The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen addresses these issues and many more, demystifying the confusing and often conflicting data about what defines healthful eating. Along with a deliciously varied selection of dishes, Denise shares her "master" recipes, including her all-purpose Gluten-Free Flour Mix, Dairy Milk Alternative, Fiber-Rich Sandwich Bread, Creamy Macadamia Pine Nut Cheese, and Soy Velvet Whipped Cream—key staples that make Classic French Toast, Mushroom Kale Lasagna, Rustic Heirloom Pesto Pizza, and Pumpkin Cheesecake possible.

And for those who must avoid eggs, nuts, and soy products, recipes that are free of these components are clearly labeled. So whether you've been diagnosed with a particular food intolerance or sensitivity, or you’re just trying to consume a less refined, more healthful diet, The Dairy-Free & Gluten-Free Kitchen has something for just about everyone!

Of all the Made at Home titles, perhaps this one speaks loudest to the popularity of homegrown foods. The smoked bacon, salamis and heady cheeses we love are prime candidates for handcrafted taste. Curing and Smoking demonstrates how simple it is to use the magic of smoke to create wonderfully aromatic foods with distinctive flavors.
The book follows the curing and smoking processes from beginning to end, from creating a purpose-made pantry to storage. Topics include drying, curing, hot smoking, cold smoking, indoor smoking, drying and wrapping, and vacuum packing. Foods are not limited to meats and cheeses, but include fruits and vegetables, fish, ciders, and seafood. Even eggs can be smoked or cured. Original and delicious recipes offer up such delights as jams and jellies, hot-smoked oysters, and fresh tomato salsa. Curing and Smoking is ideal for adventurous cooks, modern pioneers and all food crafters.

Nicholas Culpeper's The English Physitian: or an Astrologo-Physical Discourse of the Vulgar Herbs of This Nation is more commonly known as "Culpeper's Complete Herbal." It was first printed in September 1653 (Culpeper died in January 1654) and immediately became a classic reference that is as fascinating today as it was more than 350 years ago. Breverton's Complete Herbal is a reworking of that classic text for a modern-day audience. The book identifies each of Culpeper's herbs and spices, with a description of their appearance and Latin name/family, plus descriptions of the herbs' uses in medicine, dyeing and/or cuisine from the Greeks to the present day. Informative and entertaining, this book is packed with interesting facts associated with herbs. For example, most herbs have their uses attached to their old names: Lungwort cured lung illnesses, Fleabane was strewn to get rid of fleas, Wolfbane poisoned wolves, and Henbane killed chickens. Arranged alphabetically, Breverton's Complete Herbal describes 250 herbs and spices while containing feature sidebars and spreads on scented herb/medicinal gardens, the great herbalists, and New World herbs.
