Make the bread, buy the butter: what you should and shouldn't cook from scratch--over 120 recipes for the best homemade foods
1st Free Press hardcover ed.
Fabulous launch publicity on Good Morning, America and on NPR's All Things Considered made this unique combination of recipes, memoir, and advice a national bestseller. "Pure entertainment in an original, fresh voice" (Mollie Katzen, author of Moosewood Cookbook ). Selected by the New York Times as a Notable Cookbook of 2011, by USA Today as a Best Holiday Gift "For the Foodie," and by More.com as one of their Best Cookbooks of the Year. WHEN BLOGGER JENNIFER REESE LOST HER JOB, SHE BEGAN A SERIES OF FOOD-RELATED EXPERIMENTS. Economizing by making her own peanut butter, pita bread, and yogurt, she found that "doing it yourself" doesn't always cost less or taste better. In fact, she found that the joys of making some foods from scratch-- marshmallows, hot dog buns, and hummus--can be augmented by buying certain ready-made foods--butter, ketchup, and hamburger buns. Tired? Buy your mayonnaise. Inspired? Make it. With Reese's fresh voice and delightful humor, Make the Bread, Buy the Butter has 120 recipes with eminently practical yet deliciously fun "make or buy" recommendations. Her tales include living with a backyard full of cheerful chickens, muttering ducks, and adorable baby goats; countertops laden with lacto-fermenting pickles; and closets full of mellowing cheeses. Here's the full picture of what is involved in a truly homemade life and how to get the most out of your time in the kitchen--with the good news that you shouldn't try to make everything yourself.

|display_description||"A lively, frugal-chic answer to the question "Make or Buy" about 120 different food staples"-- Provided by publisher. "Does becoming part of the home cooking movement mean cooking everything from scratch? According to Jennifer Reese, known as The Tipsy Baker to her online foodie following, there are plenty of products that you should buy at the store. Make your own bread, for instance, but buy the butter--making butter takes too long and doesn't taste better. Jennifer Reese's popular cost-benefit experiments became the most emailed story on Slate for a week, and this book brings her conscientious, frugal-chic approach to 120 food staples in a narrative with recipes that explores the homemade life"-- Provided by publisher.|
