Growing a Feast: The Chronicle of a Farm-to-Table Meal
Growing a Feast
The Chronicle of a Farm-to-Table Meal
Hardcover      ISBN: 0393088898

In Growing a Farmer, Kurt Timmermeister recounted the toil and joy of wrestling an empty plot of land on Vashon Island, Washington, into a dairy farm. Now he tells the story of a feast made from only what the farm provides. But the story of the meal begins two years earlier with the birth of a calf, Alice. When she is grown, Alice will produce the cream to be churned into butter, made into sauce Bearnaise, and served alongside poached eggs and kale gathered the morning of the feast. Along the way we meet Leda, who trades onion seedlings for Kurt s cheese; Michiko, who forages the white chanterelles for the antipasti course; and Bill, whose large, thin-skinned tomatoes will form the basis of the tomato upside-down cake. Rich in detail, resonant in story, Growing a Feast depicts the effort behind every meal, the farm that comes before every table."

Modern Maple
Modern Maple
Paperback      ISBN: 0873518888

Maple syrup is a genuine product of the north, made only in the northeastern quarter of the United States and adjoining Canadian provinces. The Ojibwe and Dakota used it as a seasoning and also cooked it down to a crystallized state to preserve and transport it. Today, locally produced pure maple syrup is regarded as an artisan product, prized by cooks and bakers alike. Minnesota and Wisconsin are home to numerous syrup producers, from family-run operations that do everything from collection to boiling and bottling to large packagers that buy raw sap to process and sell.

Modern Maple celebrates this local treasure in ways both traditional and contemporary, with seventy-five recipes using maple to season, flavor, and sweeten dishes ranging from traditional breakfast favorites to appetizers, sandwiches, vegetables, main courses, breads, and desserts. Grilled Radicchio with Maple Drizzle and Goat Cheese, Pecan-Crusted Chicken with Maple Apples, Cardamom-Maple Swirl Bread, Roasted Carrot-Ginger Soup with Maple, and Maple Baklava are just a few of the delights that await. A special section on backyard syruping gives complete but easy instructions for making homemade syrup on a very small scale--a fun and interesting hobby that pays dividends in the kitchen.

The Northern Plate
Modern Maple is the second book in the Northern Plate series, following Rhubarb Renaissance. Each book in the series celebrates a specific food from the bounty of the Upper Midwest.

Teresa Marrone is the author of Cooking with Wild Berries and Fruits of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Michigan; Abundantly Wild: Collecting and Cooking Wild Edibles in the Upper Midwest; and The Back-Country Kitchen: Camp Cooking for Canoeists, Hikers, and Anglers.

The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide: A Vegetarian Plan for Balancing Your Gut Flora
The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide
A Vegetarian Plan for Balancing Your Gut Flora
1st Edition    Paperback      ISBN: 0778805174

In recent years, there has been a great deal of research exploring the relationship between maintaining an optimal balance of healthy bacteria in our gut, known as "healthy gut", and the impact of a healthy gut on overall health and disease prevention and treatment.

There are two bacteria key to a healthy gut: probiotics and prebiotics. Probiotics are healthy bacteria that naturally live and flourish in the colon of our digestive systems. Prebiotics, on the other hand, are non-digestible carbohydrates that also live in the digestive system where they act as "food" for the beneficial probiotics. Unfortunately, there are some lifestyle choices, such as poor diet and overuse of antibiotics, that can seriously compromise healthy levels of probiotics and prebiotics.

The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide is a guide to achieving and maintaining an optimal balance of prebiotics and probiotics in the digestive system. Written by one of North America's leading gastroenterologists, the book explains what and exactly how probiotics work, as well as how they are linked to diseases like inflammatory bowel disease and urinary tract infections. The health benefits of prebiotics are also covered and their role in diseases such as colon cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, weight loss and calcium absorption.

To get you off to the best possible start with respect to both prebiotics and probiotics, The Complete Prebiotic and Probiotic Health Guide has 175 tempting recipes that promote optimum amounts of each. Foods like yogurt, kefr, sauerkraut and miso soup are covered for their positive probiotic benefts, and such foods as asparagus, chicory root, garlic, onions, and dietary fiber, which optimize prebiotics, are also covered.

This is a comprehensive and practical choice for making important changes that can have a profound effect on health and well-being.
