A Look Inside The Nourished Kitchen

The Nourished Kitchen

The last few weeks have flown by with visits from friends, and work on The Nourished Kitchen, which is available for preorder now.   And today, I wanted to take the time to share with you some of my favorite images from The Nourished Kitchen – like a little peek inside the cookbook that’s set to arrive in only a few short weeks.   I also have some surprises for you, this week too!

And, just before I forget, Amazon has posted the Look Inside! feature for my cookbook, so if you’re curious as to what lies behind the cover of my favorite preserved lemons, you can look inside the cookbook here, and get a little peek of what’s to come.

For me, the book is a celebration of food and farming, tradition and intention, and each of The Nourished Kitchens eight chapters emphasizes  how food is sourced.  Where a food comes from, and how it is prepared is intrinsically linked to how well it nourishes our bodies.  For me, penning the book was an exploration in balance, intention and tradition.  The recipes are simple, emphasizing the natural sweetness and flavors from farm-fresh, traditional foods.  Roasted Beet and Walnut Salad with Kombucha Vinaigrette was one of my favorite examples of that concept – simple, but flavorful.

In writing the book, I didn’t want to approach cooking with the same dull method of outlining chapters by courses, or giving you simple instructions on how to chop and dice; rather, I wanted to explore the nature of traditional foods, celebrating them, and giving you the old-world guidance that was passed down from generation to generation  until processed foods began to replace traditional ones.

So in addition to simple recipes to prepare for your family like Cider-Brined Slow-Roasted Chicken or Spiced Pot Roast with Sweet Potatoes, Apples and Prunes, I wanted to bring to you old-fashioned and nearly lost techniques for preparing artisan sourdough breads like Bohemian RyeSlow-Cultured YogurtHomemade Butter and even Home-Cured Bacon.

The Nourished Kitchen is also a cookbook of place and philosophy, providing information on how to source foods, and how to build connections in your community to foster a vibrant foodshed.  It’s about connecting with farmers, or growing your own, and bringing that connection back to the plate.

And while most of the cookbook focuses on simple, hearty fare and old-world farm foods, I couldn’t forget to end it on a sweet note – with foods from the orchard: fresh fruits, nuts, and honey.  These are my little boy’s favorite foods – special occasion treats and sweets like Concord Grape Sorbet with Rosemary and Black PepperRoasted  Berry Panna Cotta and Strawberries in Minted Honey Syrup.

    Congratulations on your soon-to-be-published book :-) Do you happen to know how much will shipping be? Thanks.

    • Jenny says

      Shipping through Amazon should be free, and if you’re outside the US you can order from Book Depository for free shipping, OR you can stop by a local bookseller, too.

  2. Stephanie says

    Hi ! Congratulations on your cookbook! I have pre ordered it for my Kindle. But now that I’ve seen these previews and photos, I may order the hard copy instead.
    I’m new to some of these particular ideas and methods, and I look forward to learning from you. I have been bothered by nutritional deficiencies on and off my whole life, and despite being overweight, I still feel hungry and malnourished. I’m trying to reverse some of the damage I’ve done to mybody already, as well as avoid as much as possible my family history of heart disease, diseased and damaged blood vessels and arteries, stroke and diabetes.
    It will be a challenge as my family is quite picky, plus I’m sure I’m addicted to sugar and white flour. So I’m glad I found your blog!

    Yippee! I would be clicking my heels in the air if i wasn’t laying down beside a dozing toddler… This is how we cook in our home but I’m excited for the inspiration and fresh ideas!! Not to forget what looks to be a beautiful and thoughtful presentation.I am bursting with excitement at the thought of having this book to pore over within a few weeks. Off to pre-order!

  4. Lisa says

    I would like to order several books and have you sign it. I think the book would make great gifts. How do I go about ordering a dozen, and is it possible for you to sign each copy?

  5. Karen says

    The book looks wonderful Jenny! I have pre-ordered it and tried emailing the address you gave several times with my amazon confirmation in order to get the bonus content however I’ve had no luck with a reply on how to access this digital content. If there is any way you can email me the link I’d be very grateful!

      Hi Bec! Yes, it’s completely confusing, but they have some really, really old artwork on there. It’s the same book, and the one shipped to you will have the new cover (lemons in jar).

  6. bob raymond says

    pss I have been curious about making bread from sprouted grains without having to dehydrate them. I’m so glad you covered that in your cookbook!

  7. says

    I have just received my book in the mail. I am so excited to start cooking with it today. It is a beautiful book with so much information and so many delicious recipes. Definitely prefer to have this book on my kitchen bench, rather than on my ipad. Gold Coast Australia
