We are big fans of this gorgeous book, created by passionate gardeners, farmers, authors and educators Matt and Lentil Pubrick, who run workshops on traditional, sustainable growing, foraging, preparation and preservation, and follow the “wisdom of the past” focusing on how food was produced before plastics and chemicals ruled our world. They make, forage, trade and farm – and they want to show you how to do the same.
Grown & Gathered doesn’t just teach its readers about how to grow, sustain, gather and cook your own fresh and organic food; it also educates you on a lifestyle. The two have created a guide that can be adopted by farm owners with acres of land just as much as those living in tiny apartment courtyards. Each page packs a punch with some inspiring information and guides, and easy to follow recipes that will turn your kitchen and garden into a veritable harvest hub. It’s a book that will bring you joy all seasons round.
And as a little taste tester of what you’ll discover inside this beautiful book, Matt and Lentil have offered us some of their delicious recipes from Grown & Gathered to share with Queensland Homes readers. These perfect home fresh delights will have your springtime tasting all the sweeter, and are designed to share with loved ones. They’re helping us all to grow, cook, preserve, and live well, one dish at a time. Thanks Matt and Lentil!
