Cooking Under the Arch
Cherished Recipes and Gardening Tips from the Rigorous High Country of Alberta
About the Book
Down-to-earth, easy-to-prepare, inexpensive recipes for home cooking are at the heart of this cookbook inspired by foods from the garden. Ingredients can be purchased locally through farmers’ markets (or grocery stores), but if you want to grow your own, this book tells you how.
Written by the same people who brought you Gardening Under the Arch, Cooking Under the Arch is about more than fruits and vegetables. It’s about soups, salads, casseroles, desserts, beverages, wines, vinegars, wild fruits, jellies and preserves, sauces, pickles, chutney and relishes, toasted seeds, edible flowers, sauerkraut, rosehips, baby food and more. Recipes are interspersed with informative essays about growing vegetables, transplanting, raised beds, herbs, fruit, community gardens and farmers’ markets.
If you’ve ever wondered how to make your aunt’s great Crabapple Pie or Sugar Snap Omelette, or had a craving for Grandma’s Rosy Rhubarb Punch or Ripe Tomato Chutney, this is the book for you.
