Growing, pickling, preserving, cooking and eating food is a joyful experience. But what makes it even better is sharing the food we have grown and cooked with the people in our village. It's the sharing that brings meaning.
In The Village, Matt and Lentil from Grown & Gathered focus on the life-giving value of cooking and eating with your village - whether made up of family or friends. Wholesome staples, like Kombucha and Sourdough flatbreads. Pickles and preserves, like Pear, lemon and chilli jam and Zucchini pickles. Delicious meals including Honey onion, buckwheat and lentil salad, Nonna's leek and spinach fritters, and Pan-fried gnocchi, pea and ricotta salad. Desserts like Baked plums, sage and warm cheese, and Raw chocolate and espresso bowls.
A comprehensive chapter with practical advice on setting up a natural garden to feed your village will help you get the basics right: the importance of soil and sun, garden design, planting guides and projects, and natural pest control.
