Modern Pioneering: More Than 150 Recipes, Projects, and Skills for a Self-Sufficient Life Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cookbook and backyard gardening and homesteading guide for women who want to grow food efficiently, cook seasonal recipes, or even try foraging, camping, and living off the land.

Life is simple and sweet when you use your hands. Georgia Pellegrini, outdoor adventurer and chef, shows you how to tap into your own pioneer spirit. Whether you dream of slipping off your heels at the end of the day and putting on gardening gloves, plucking fragrant herbs from your windowsill to brighten up a meal, or escaping on a weekend camping trip, this overflowing resource will help you hone new skills in the kitchen, garden, and great outdoors. It includes:

·         More than 100 recipes for garden-to-table dishes (7-Herb Frittata), preserves (Lemony Fig Jam), and cured foods (Brown Sugar Bacon) 

·         Small-space gardening advice on building a raised bed, choosing what to grow, and saving seeds

·         DIY projects for weekend warriors like Mason jar lanterns and homemade notecards

·         Superwoman skills such as assembling a 48-hour survival kit in an Altoids tin or making a solar still to get fresh water


Packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations, Modern Pioneering proves that being more self-sufficient also means having a lot more fun.
