Broth & Stock from the Nourished Kitchen, a review


Rarely do I say a cookbook needs to be in every cook's kitchen but this is one of those times.  I wasn't sure what to expect from Broth & Stock but knowing it was written by Jennifer McGruther of the Nourished Kitchen fame... it intrigued me.

On one hand, I make a lot of homemade stock during all but the hottest of summer months.  However, I don't cook completely in the method of the Nourished Kitchen book.  So would this cookbook be helpful in my kitchen?  Absolutely!

For one thing, the author tells us the difference between broth, stock, and bone broth.  We are told simply how to make each (including vegetable broth) and as a bonus... recipes for how to use them.  The recipes are not only for soup but other menu items.

The chapters include:

-The Broth Maker's Kitchen

-Master Broths and Stocks
Poultry (including morning broth, broth for infants, chicken soup recipes, turkey soup, and many more).

Meat (including beef tea, beef consomme', beef stew, Salisbury steak with mushroom sauce, oxtail soup, beef shank, pinto beans and ham hock, and many more).

Fish (including seafood stew, New England clam chowder, Thai style spicy prawn soup, simple miso soup, and more).

Vegetables (including bieler's broth, springtime risotto, fresh pea soup wih spring herbs, roasted beet soup, potato and onion gratin, and many more).

-Where to Shop

This book is book is loaded with information, easy to read, has beautiful photos, and good for the new cook as well as the experienced cook.  Not to mention it is not very expensive.  Highly Recommended!

Broth & Stock from the Nourished Kitchen was provided by the publisher for the sake of review but the opinions are my own.

This would be a valuable skill for every cook to have! I may end up buying one each for my girls!
