“This is a most beautiful book to look at and to read, and it’s a courageous one, too, for as the author herself says, ‘making broth is an experience in delayed gratification,’ not something we have much experience with today. But this patient tending of the pot which makes full use all the ingredients we bring into our kitchens, is perhaps just what’s needed to foster mindfulness, deliciousness and health. I love the promise and stillness of Broth and Stock from the Nourished Kitchen.”
— Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy
