Frugavore : how to grow organic, buy local, waste nothing, and eat well
Forge, Arabella

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Library Journal:

Forge, a nutritionist and cooking instructor who is also trying to run a healthy home on a budget, shares her methods for eating frugally, healthfully, and ethically. The 100-plus recipes included throughout are appealing and offer suggestions for using a wide variety of common and uncommon nutritious ingredients. However, with haphazard organization, commonplace tips, and tired adages about eating like our peasant ancestors, the narrative content will fail to hold readers' interest. The Australian author also relies on resources not widely consumed in the United States, such as offal and biodynamic produce. The chapter on preserving lacks critical safety information. Verdict Excellent titles on healthy homemaking abound, and Forge's contribution does little to stand out. Interested readers should consider Linda Watson's Wildly Affordable Organic or Lisa Taylor's Your Farm in the City.
