Food is an integral part of our lives. And in recent years, more and more people have been asking questions about the food they eat: How does that food get to our plates? How was it grown? What chemicals were used? How was the animal treated? What are the impacts on the environment? In Whole Larder Love, Rohan Anderson gives us easy-to-follow tips and instructions for setting up a home garden, the best practices for hunting and trapping small game and for catching fish, guidance on how to identify and collect edible food growing in the wild, and the proper tools, gear and resources to use. Additionally, he gives us a slew of exciting recipes for our ingredients once they've been collected. This combination of how-to manual and cookbook is beautifully illustrated in full colour with Anderson's own photographs, capturing the ingredients, the gear, the rural surroundings and the exquisite finished dishes in rich and vivid detail. And with suggestions for possible substitutions and tips on bartering and selecting food from farmer's markets, Whole Larder Love is perfect for foodies, farmers, hunters, gardeners - even urbanites looking to inject their lives with a little rural romance - and anyone else interested in getting more involved with the origins of the food they eat.
