Item description for The Biodynamic Food & Cookbook: Real Nutrition That Doesn't Cost the Earth by Wendy E. Cook...
Biodynamics is about respect for nature, sustainability, and spiritual ecology. But most of all it is about flavorful, nutritious, enjoyable food! This is a rich book of information, beautifully illustrated and packed with delicious and healthy recipes.
The biodynamic movement is supported by top chefs, master winemakers, and numerous celebrities; Prince Charles introduced biodynamic methods at his Gloucestershire farm. Nonetheless, biodynamic agriculture had a humble beginning. In 1924, a small group of farmers and gardeners gathered to hear Rudolf Steiner give a series of lectures. It was a time of growing interest in industrial farming and mass production, and Steiner spoke of the need to preserve and nurture the qualitative aspects of food. He outlined an agricultural method based on a holistic perception of nature.
Illustrated with hundreds of color photographs, this volume explains the principles behind biodynamic methods and places it in the context of food and cooking throughout the ages. Wendy Cook takes us on a journey through the four seasons with more than 150 delicious recipes based on her many years of working with biodynamic nutrition. She considers the ethics of food, the foundation of a balanced diet, and conjures up the color and vibrancy of Mallorca, which has contributed so much to her personal approach. Included are supplementary sections on breads, sauces, salads, desserts, drinks, and much more.
The Biodynamic Food & Cookbook will find a permanent place in every healthy kitchen.
