D.I.Y. Delicious offers ideas for cooking real food, without the jumping-on-the-bandwagon feeling you get from some slow-food cookbooks. This book is great for the cook who is still new to the kitchen, but is also a welcome guide for the seasoned cook, as Barrington applies her artisanal spirit to some old classics. My personal favorite recipe: ketchup!

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For crafty green types who want to master the fundamentals of a scratch pantry and have graduated from simple weekend jam and baking activities, this book offers a wide variety of recipes and blueprints for artisanal food projects. Forty projects with accompanying recipes appeal to a range of skill levels and palates. D.I.Y. Delicious goes beyond pickling and preserving into fermenting, culturing cheese, and brewing sodas and tonics. A total of 75 recipes and more than 50 step-by-step, color photographs lead the way to outfitting a scratch pantry that uses fewer ingredients to make delicious staples at a much lower cost.

This book is totally inspiring--who knew that making things like ketchup and cheese yourself was so easy? I made like 5 things from this book within the first few weeks I had it. Highly recommended.
