Praise for The Nourished Kitchen

“I love this book. It’s gorgeous, informed, and filled with wisdom based on old ways and common sense—the wisdom that we crave. At the same time, it is filled with flavor and style. Jennifer’s food is food that I already love, plus there’s new food I am ready to try.”
— Deborah Madison, author of Vegetable Literacy 

“Jennifer McGruther brings a wealth of farmhouse wisdom to life in The Nourished Kitchen. Her northern European culinary perspective is a perfect match for her home in the mountains of Colorado, a beacon for how to eat seasonally and locally in a place where the snow flies six months of the year.”
— Hank Shaw, author of Duck, Duck, Goose and creator of the award-winning blog Hunter Angler Gardener Cook

“Jennifer McGruther’s road map to culinary integrity delivers us from wandering through the bewilderment of industrial, nutrient-deficient, supermarket detours. The Nourished Kitchen is as essential in the modern kitchen as a slow cooker and electric mixer.”
— Joel Salatin, farmer, lecturer, and author of Folks, This Ain’t Normal
