      From honey experts C. Marina Marchese and Kim Flottum comes this comprehensive introduction to the origin, flavor, and culinary uses of more than 30 varietals of honey, from ubiquitous clover to tangy star thistle to rich, smoky buckwheat.

      Like wine, cheese, coffee and chocolate, honey has emerged as an artisanal obsession. Its popularity at farmers markets and specialty food stores has soared as retailers capitalize on the trend. The Honey Connoisseur teaches consumers everything they need to know about how to taste, select and use a diverse selection of honey.

      After a brief explanation of how bees produce honey, the authors introduce the concept of terroir, the notion that soil, weather and other natural phenomena can affect the taste of honey. As with wines, knowing the terroir of a honey varietal helps to inform an understanding of its flavor.

      The book goes on to give a thorough course in the origins of more than 30 different honeys as well as step-by-step instructions on how to taste honey, describe its flavor and determine what other flavors will pair best with it. Also included are simple recipes such as dressings, marinades, beverages and quick-and-easy desserts.

      Beautifully illustrated and designed, The Honey Connoisseur is the perfect book for foodies and locavores alike.

      In Vegetable Literacy, Deborah Madison reveals the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers and herbs within the same botanical families, and how understanding these connections can help home cooks see everyday vegetables in a new light.

      This groundbreaking new cookbook celebrates the diversity of the plant kingdom. Destined to become the new standard reference for cooking vegetables, it shows cooks that, because of their shared characteristics, vegetables within the same family can be used interchangeably in cooking. It presents an entirely new way of looking at vegetables, drawing on Madison's deep knowledge of cooking, gardening and botany. For example, knowing that dill, chervil, cumin, parsley, coriander, anise, lovage and caraway come from the umbellifer family makes it clear why they're such good matches for carrots, also a member of that family. With more than 300 classic and exquisitely simple recipes, Madison brings this wealth of information together in dishes that highlight a world of complementary flavors. The recipes showcase combinations that are simultaneously familiar and revelatory, such as:

      • Griddled Artichokes with Tarragon Mayonnaise
      • Tomato Soup and Cilantro with Black Quinoa
      • Tuscan Kale Salad with Slivered Brussels Sprouts and Sesame Dressing
      • Kohlrabi Slaw with Frizzy Mustard Greens
      • Fresh Peas with Sage on Baked Ricotta
      Inspiring improvisation in the kitchen and curiosity in the garden, Vegetable Literacy will forever change the way we eat and cook.

      Sake began with a grain of rice. Scotch emerged from barley, tequila from agave, rum from sugarcane, bourbon from corn. Thirsty yet? In The Drunken Botanist, Amy Stewart explores the dizzying array of herbs, flowers, trees, fruits and fungi that humans have, through ingenuity, inspiration and sheer desperation, contrived to transform into alcohol over the centuries.

      Of all the extraordinary and obscure plants that have been fermented and distilled, a few are dangerous, some are downright bizarre, and one is as ancient as dinosaurs-but each represents a unique cultural contribution to our global drinking traditions and our history.

      This fascinating concoction of biology, chemistry, history, etymology and mixology-with more than 50 drink recipes and growing tips for gardeners-will make you the most popular guest at any cocktail party.

      LIFE, LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT OF FOOD RIGHTS

      Do Americans have the right to privately obtain the foods of our choice from farmers, neighbors, and local producers, in the same way our grandparents and great grandparents used to do?

      Yes, say a growing number of people increasingly afraid that the mass-produced food sold at supermarkets is excessively processed, tainted with antibiotic residues and hormones, and lacking in important nutrients. These people, a million or more, are seeking foods outside the regulatory system, like raw milk, custom-slaughtered beef, and pastured eggs from chickens raised without soy, purchased directly from private membership-only food clubs that contract with Amish and other farmers.

      Public-health and agriculture regulators, however, say no: Americans have no inherent right to eat what they want. In today's ever-more-dangerous food-safety environment, they argue, all food, no matter the source, must be closely regulated, and even barred, if it fails to meet certain standards. These regulators, headed up by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, with help from state agriculture departments, police, and district-attorney detectives, are mounting intense and sophisticated investigative campaigns against farms and food clubs supplying privately exchanged food—even handcuffing and hauling off to jail, under threat of lengthy prison terms, those deemed in violation of food laws.

      Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Food Rights takes readers on a disturbing cross-country journey from Maine to California through a netherworld of Amish farmers paying big fees to questionable advisers to avoid the quagmire of America’s legal system, secret food police lurking in vans at farmers markets, cultish activists preaching the benefits of pathogens, U.S. Justice Department lawyers clashing with local sheriffs, small Maine towns passing ordinances to ban regulation, and suburban moms worried enough about the dangers of supermarket food that they’ll risk fines and jail to feed their children unprocessed, and unregulated, foods of their choosing.

      Out of the intensity of this unprecedented crackdown, and the creative and spirited opposition that is rising to meet it, a new rallying cry for food rights is emerging.

      The Sugarmaker's Companion is the comprehensive guide that small-and large-scale syrup producers have been waiting for in their quest to create a profitable business model. Author Michael Farrell documents the untapped potential of American forests and shows how sugaring can turn a substantial profit for farmers while providing tremendous enjoyment and satisfaction.

      Farrell, sugarmaker and director of the Uihlein Forest at Cornell University, incorporates the wisdom of traditional sugarmaking with the value of modern technology (such as reverse-osmosis machines and vacuum tubing). His balanced view of the industry offers a realistic picture of how modern technology can be beneficial-economically and environmentally.

      The first book of its kind, The Sugarmaker's Companion includes:

      • A focus on maple syrup as a healthy, local, sustainably produced alternative to corn syrup and other highly processed artificial sweeteners
      • Discussions about organic certification, sugarhouse registration, and the new international grading system
      • Information on marketing to create a profitable business model based on scale, interest, access and more
      • Detailed analyses of the economics of buying and selling sap
      • Information on ways to process and market other tree saps, including birch and walnut
      • Ways to enhance diversity in the sugarbush and interplant understory crops for value-added products, such as ginseng, goldenseal and mushrooms
      • An economic analysis of utilizing maple trees for syrup or sawtimber production.

      In addition, readers and sugarmakers will learn plenty of practical, how-to skills, such as:

      • If, and on what scale, syrup production is right for them
      • How to find trees for tapping
      • The essentials of sap collection
      • The art and science of sugarmaking
      • How to build community through syrup production
      • Valuable information on ecological forest management and value-added products

      Appealing to foresters, organic farmers with woodlands, homesteaders, preppers, permaculture enthusiasts, and, of course, sugarmakers, this book is applicable to a wide range of climates and regions, and is sure to change the conversation around syrup production and prove invaluable for both home-scale and commercial sugarmakers alike. This is a unique guide to making an integrated sugaring operation, interconnected to the whole-farm system, woodland and community.
