Biodynamic gardening is about respect for nature, sustainability and spiritual ecology-but most of all it is about flavorsome, nutritious and real food; This biodynamic cookbook by Wendy E Cook, has all the recipes to prove it.
The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook is a source rich in information, beautifully illustrated and packed with healthy yet tasty recipes.
Biodynamic gardening and cooking is a movement that is supported by top chefs, expert viniculturists and numerous celebrities. Even Prince Charles has introduced its methods at his Gloucestershire farm. Yet biodynamic agriculture had humble beginnings, and is based on the approach of caring for the environment.
In 1924, a small group gathered to hear the philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner give a series of lectures. At a time when industrial farming and mass production were on the rise, Steiner spoke of the qualitative aspects of food and outlined an agricultural method founded on a holistic perception of nature. Today, more than ever, biodynamic farming and cooking goes beyond organic labels to embrace a real connection with the land.
Illustrated with hundreds of full-color photographs, The Biodynamic Food and Cookbook explains the principles behind biodynamics and places it in the context of food and cooking throughout the ages. This cookbook has a Mediterranean base, and includes recipe sections on bread, sauces, salads, desserts and drinks.
Wendy Cook takes us on a journey through the four seasons, presenting over 150 delicious recipes based on many years of working with biodynamic nutrition. She studies the ethics of food, the foundations of a balanced diet, and conjures up the color and vibrancy of Mallorca, the Spanish island that has contributed so much to her personal approach.

Author Sharon Astyk tackles all the nuts and bolts of preserving foods, and provides tips on how to bulk buy and preserve food inexpensively. Independence Days is packed with valuable secrets to home food preservation, including canning and dehydrating techniques, root cellaring, season extension, and a host of broader issues. In addition, it focuses on how to enjoy a delicious, high-quality diet at home year-round, how to preserve food on a community scale, and how to reduce reliance on industrial agriculture by creating self-sufficient and vibrant local economies.
In just a few decades, America's approach to food has changed radically from the self-sufficiency of our grandparents to the convenience foods of mega-supermarkets. The recent economic crisis has seen millions of North Americans move from being middle class to poor, and from poor to hungry. At the same time, the trend toward self-sufficiency, whole foods health and eating locally is shifting from being a pricey fringe activity to an essential element of getting by. But how can you eat locally, not just when the farmers markets are bountiful, but all year-round? Who really knows anymore how to eat outside of the supermarket, and who really knows how to eat a balanced diet based on easily stored and home preserved foods?

Dwindling petroleum supplies and growing environmental concerns are significantly impacting the cost of petro-fuel and its infrastructure. The search for alternative fuel sources has led to ethanol, a gasoline substitute that is already in the marketplace as Gasohol and E-85. But large-scale production of corn-based ethanol is controversial as it threatens the world's food supply. There are alternatives, however: Brazil uses sugar cane, which is up to six times more productive in energy conversion.
After the energy crisis of the 1970s, there was a lot of misinformation about the cost of individual ethanol production. In order to achieve energy independence from gasoline, ethanol lends itself to small-scale production, and especially to cooperative ventures in rural communities, often using 'waste' feedstock.
Alcohol Fuel is a practical, grass-roots book that will give readers all the information they need, covering every aspect of making and using ethanol for fuel, including:

Cook safely and without worrying about metals leaching into your food with Natural Home's 14-inch-long, stainless steel, slotted cooking spoon. With its light brown bamboo accents and the Natural Home logo in the handle, this cooking utensil is so versatile and handsome you'll want to use it for cooking and serving, and even for displaying in your kitchen.
Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.
Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.
Stainless steel does not leach chemicals. The stainless steel used is 93 percent recycled. The grade of the stainless steel used is 18.8.
Care instructions: Hand wash only.
Manufactured in China.
