Country Crafts: Kitchen, Pantry, Decoration, Style Hardback
This is a treasury of recipes and ideas with timeless appeal, inspired by seasonal food and flowers.
It includes 70 recipes for stocking the pantry with mouthwatering fare, including herb-infused oils, chutneys, vinegars and pickles, mustards, jellies, jams and candied fruit, spiced fruit teas and wholesome breads to enjoy all year round.
It also includes 40 projects for creating scented cushions, beeswax candles, wreaths and garlands, and table decorations using natural products, flowers and herbs.
You can decorate your home, scent your rooms, delight your friends with beautiful gifts, and even make your own natural cleaning products and beauty aids.
It is illustrated throughout with beautiful step-by-step images by award-winning photographer Michelle Garrett.
In our busy everyday lives we are still drawn to the simplicity of earlier times when the changing seasons were marked by harvesting, storing, cooking and making, and in communal festivals and thanksgiving.
This book captures a simpler, more satisfying way of living in tune with the seasons, and provides practical instruction for creating a country feel with food, gifts, beauty products and home decoration. With four sections: The Pantry, The Bathroom, The Stillroom, and Seasonal Celebrations, the book offers delicious but simple recipes, and delightful projects for hand creams, bath oils, hair rinses, scented gifts, dried flower arrangements, room fresheners, natural remedies and cleansers.
Step-by-step sequences illustrate all the projects and recipes, and exquisite finished photographs evoke the true essence of country living.
