I was really excited for this book. Sadly, it just wasn't what I was hoping it would be.

This is a very detailed book for people who are more advanced in all the areas mentioned in the subtitle. Most of the forage items aren't available in Ohio, many of the farm animals mentioned are not allowed in my city, and the fermenting and feast items really didn't appeal to me. I love kombucha and do make my own, but that was about the only recipe I was able to take away from this book. I guess I was looking for something where all the elements foraged or made could be used together, but a lot of these recipes called for ingredients that aren't readily available or are a bit expensive. The pictures are beautiful though and there is a lot of information in this book. It's more like a piece of nonfiction that includes recipes in it. ( )
