              Find your route to a more sustainable lifestyle with Dick Strawbridge, of Channel 4's Escape to the Chateau, and his son James. Wherever you live - be it a small terraced house like James or a rural smallholding - this new edition of Practical Self-sufficiency contains invaluable... advice on making the most of your own resources and making eco-friendly choices. You may simply want to embrace zero-waste, grow your own veg, or make small changes that can help the planet, or perhaps you are ready to explore off-grid living and a fully self-sufficient life. A comprehensive guide to modern sustainability, the book covers everything from how to conserve energy in the home, keep bees, and grow crops in an urban garden to recipes for smoking your own meat and fish, creating your own oat milk, and preparing your own greener cleaning products. Fully illustrated and easy to follow, with plenty of advice and anecdotes, Dick and James's book demonstrates that self-sufficiency doesn't have to mean huge upheaval. By making a few small changes and learning the importance of sustainable living, we all have the ability to help the planet.

              Reconnect with a more mindful enjoyment of cooking and spark your creativity. Rediscover traditional culinary skills made accessible for the creative, contemporary cook. This cookbook is for people who like to cook beyond the everyday, for whom cooking is an expression of artistr...y, a way to reconnect with ingredients and processes, and an enjoyment of food before the era of mass production and passive consumption. This cookbook is for people who like to escape to their kitchen and plan a new culinary project; who would be proud to feed their sourdough starter, culture their next batch of kefir, salt and hang their curing sausages; who are happy to leave their chutney to mature and their home-brewed wine to mellow; who are up for the challenge of building their own smoker and rigging up a turning spit to roast over an open fire. The Artisan Kitchen is a compendium of culinary projects, each explored in three stages to spark your creativity: The Science explains the science and technical know-how; The Practice gets you started on an enticing recipe, with action shots of tricky techniques; and The Possibilities provides further recipe ideas plus the tools and inspiration to devise your own recipes. With a modern twist to age-old techniques, The Artisan Kitchen will revolutionize how you think about and enjoy food.
