    Title: FAMILY : New Vegetable classics to comfort and nourish
    Publishing status: ACTIVE TITLE

    Family food isn't fancy or complex. Its roots are humble, stemming from recipes passed on through generations, and food rituals born from daily cooking. Most importantly, great family recipes are ones that nurture our souls, our hearts and our tummies. Family food is comfort food.

    In Family, bestselling author Hetty McKinnon shares her approach to modern, uncomplicated, hearty and healthy food that is powered by vegetables. These classic recipes are the multicultural meals she serves around her own family table. Some are heirloom recipes passed on from her mother, others are old family favourites, and many are variations on much-loved comfort food, repackaged with a healthier outlook.

    This could be a deconstructed falafel salad of crispy roasted chickpeas and fresh greens, drizzled with lemony tahini; an oozy savoury cobbler of summer tomatoes topped with parmesan-cornmeal scones; or an earthy miso brown butter sauce spiked with crispy sage and tossed through your favourite pasta. Finish things off with a simple dessert of sticky banana golden syrup dumplings, an indulgent choc-orange self-saucing pudding, or an addictive lime pie with anzac biscuit crust - sweet treats that are destined to become new family favourites. These irresistible recipes are interlaced with tender family stories from home cooks around the world.

    What does your favourite farmhouse cheese have in common with crusty sourdough bread, a glass of sparkling ginger beer or a bowl of marinated olives? The answer is each is a product of fermentation, a process that harnesses good bacteria in order to preserve ingredients and transform them into uniquely delicious foods with remarkable health benefits.

    Thanks to an increasing awareness of the crucial role probiotic-rich foods play in our wellbeing, the ancient art of fermentation is experiencing a renaissance. Add to this the joy, ease and economy of making fermented foods at home, and it's no wonder we are scrunching, pickling
    and bottling our way to better gut health and a deeper connection with our food.

    With this extensive collection, wholefood pioneer Holly Davis shares familiar and lesser-known recipes, as well as the wisdom and experience accumulated over 40 years of teaching fermentation techniques around the world. Her gentle and thorough guidance guarantees you will find a place in your home for one or more ferments that make your heart and stomach sing.

    An enlightening and delicious road-adventure-cookbook from the young woman the New York Timesdubbed "The Johnny Appleseed of Pickling."
    Three years ago, food activist Tara Whitsitt had a dream- to take to the road in a converted school bus turned fermentation lab, and spread the tasty gospel of kombucha, kimchi, and kefir nationwide. The dream inspired Tara to put wheels on her fermentation practice--to bring her microbe-dense delicacies, her expertise, and her generosity to food communities across the country. Her motto along the way- Tasty food belongs to everyone.

    She converted a 1986 International Harvester bus into a cozy kitchen workshop--fellow fermentation guru and supporter Sandor Katz calls it "a mobile fermentation recruitment station"--and took off from Eugene, Oregon, teaching her skills to curious attendees and hosting potlucks highlighting the regional and seasonal produce of each stop on her tour. The project accrued a following, and she gave it a name- "Fermentation on Wheels."

    Through her winning stories, illustrations, photographs, and more than forty recipes, Fermentation on Wheels tracks the two years and 20,000 miles Tara spent on the road, where she became known as an apostle of outrageously delicious, creative, healthy, and sustainable fermented flavors--from kombucha to sauerkraut to wild berry wines. A practical and delectable cookbook, Fermentation on Wheels is also an inspiring celebration of how food traditions (and starter cultures) can bring people together, pollinate their minds, and change their lives for the better.
