The Farm Cooking School
Techniques and Recipes That Celebrate The Seasons
The Farm Cooking School is packed with many of the same lessons you’d learn in person at the school, taught through more than 100 delicious recipes.
You’ll learn how to make the flakiest pie crust for peerless summer pies, use fresh farm eggs for sweet, airy pavlova, and highlight what’s growing now with scratch-made pizzas and pastas. Smoking, salt-roasting, pickling, and preserving are all part of the fun. Yet it’s the way Ian and Shelley employ these techniques that make their classes, and this book, so much fun. Brine nasturtium buds for creative "capers", or try the hot-smoked oysters with a dollop of harissa butter and you’ll agree!
The Farm Cooking School is a cookbook for anyone who wants to learn to cook in tune with nature. Celebrate the seasons as you grow comfortable with the practiced techniques of our forebears. Join us at the school!
