one more book list

Since I already have a section on films, I’m also going to share with you some books that I like and think are worthwhile. I hope to expand this list with new items as time goes by, so I’ll be adding them as a new page on the site.

Cooking and Nutrition:

  • Wild Fermentation, by Sandor Ellix Katz. This is a superbly researched book on all kinds of fermented products from all around the world, reflecting the author’s passion for live cultured foods, which are actually really healthy for you!
  • Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon. A friend of Sandor’s, this is a book that challenges all the fickle dietary fads and provides great insight and information on the different components that provide our nutrition and on methods for preparing healthy food.
  • The Omnivore’s Dilemma, by Michael Pollan. A great analysis of the state of modern industrial production of food with lots of information to become a more conscientious consumer.

Organic Farming, Permaculture and Sustainability:

  • How to Grow More Vegetables […], by John Jeavons. The bible on intensive organic farming.
  • The Complete Guide to Self-Sufficiency, by John Seymour. As its title proclaims, this is the ultimate book on autonomous life on a farm, including care for animals, plants, electricity generation, building methods, thatching, and even recipes, of which my personal favourites are those for bread, beer, wine and cider :).
  • Growing Medicinal and Gourmet Mushrooms, by Paul Stamets. Another of those essentials on any serious farmer’s bookshelf. Paul Stamets is a leading authority on micology.
  • Gaia’s Garden – A Guide to Homescale Permaculture, by Toby Hemenway. A guide to ecological techniques for creating self-sustaining gardens that are both productive and nature-friendly.
