When you think of something “classic” what comes to mind? Do you think of Mozart or Beethoven? What about classic literature like Les Miserables, Uncle Tom’s Cabin, or Where the Red Fern Grows? These things are considered classics because they are timeless; they motivate and change you, they inspire and touch you every time you experience them. However, a classic just isn’t the same if it’s “watered down”. When a classic book is abridged, it’s changed and something is lost.
To me food is a classic; a timeless element of life. Food is one of our most basic needs. It sustains life. I often wonder why so many people live on “watered down”, abridged, changed or even adulterated food? Take a trip down your local grocery store isle and you’ll quickly see that what we eat is often far from it’s original source. Around our house we like to joke that most people don’t eat real food but rather “edible food-like substances”.
My purpose in sharing the recipes in this book is to help you reconnect with real food – to fall in love with the process of the meal time preparation and to recapture something special that our culture has lost. I’ll show you how to cook “from scratch” and not from a bottle, box, or package.
Don’t be intimidated! This book will teach you that cooking from scratch is simple, economical, healthful and fantastically delicious!
