"This has become my favorite cookbook. I have been cooking for many years (i am in my 50's) but this book made me nostalgic for my grandmothers' way of cooking. There are some very healthy and delicious foods, with recipes you don't often find in other books. I highly recommend it for healthy versions of jams, sauerkrauts, pickles and all the other forgotten techniques of the home kitchen. It will make you want to hurry into the kitchen and start creating right away!"

"This is hands-down my favorite cookbook. It is indispensable for finding nourishing, traditional fare. There is really no book out there like it. In addition to being a completely comprehensive cookbook for following centuries-old methods of food preparation that have kept various cultures around the world so strong and vibrant, it is chock full of hard-to-find information that challenges what we think we know about eating healthy. Highly recommended!"
