Lost Arts of Hearth and Home Happy Luddites Guide to Domestic Self Sufficiency
Published by Perigee
268p, b&w, hardcover, 5.5"x8.5"
"The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home is not about extreme,
off-the-grid living. It’s for city and suburban dwellers with day jobs:
people who love to cook, love fresh natural ingredients, and old
techniques for preservation; people who like doing things themselves
with a needle and thread, garden hoe, or manual saw.
Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger Henderson spread the spirit of antiquated self-sufficiency throughout the household. They offer projects that are decidedly unplugged and a little daring, including:
* Home building projects like rooftop food dehydrators and wood-burning ovens
* Homemaking essentials, from sewing and quilting to rug braiding and soap making
* The wonders of grain: making croissants by hand, sprouting grains, and baking bread
* Adventures with meat: pickled pig’s feet, homemade liverwurst, and celery-cured salami
Intended for industrious cooks and crafters who aren’t afraid to roll up their sleeves, The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home will teach you the history and how-to on projects for every facet of your home, all without the electric toys that take away from the experience of making things by hand."
