From Scratchreal food without shortcutsMonica Eisenman, Lisa Eisenman Frisk
You can actually make most of the food you eat yourself and in this book, sisters Lisa and Monika Eisenman prove just how easy it can be.
From Scratch contains about 500 recipes for everything from pickled vegetables, spice mixes, chutney, ketchup, sauces, stocks and nut butter to yoghurt, cheese, sausages, rillettes, snacks and ice cream.
Many of the recipes are simple while others require a bit more time and effort, and there are even some real challenges, like making your own Cheddar cheese for Christmas.
As well as the health and environmental benefits, cooking from scratch is usually cheaper and tastier than ready-made alternatives, and you will end up with a fridge and larder full of beautiful jars of pickled fruit and vegetables.
Lisa Eisenman Frisk and Monica Eisenman have worked with food for many years and have co-authored a number of bestselling cookbooks: Cooking for Family and Friends, Two Sisters’ Sweets, Soups, Breads & Spreads, Winter Sweets and Summer Sweets. From Scratch is a compilation of their knowledge and genuine interest in food.
