Modern Pioneering (Review)
This review is for the book "Modern Pioneering" by Georgia Pellegrini. This book includes more than 150 recipes, projects and skills that are sort of a lost art in this modern society. Pellegrini was inspired by her family, who has passed down their skills from generation to generation. Unfortunately, many families do not pass along their skills and traditions. This book has it all. Pellegrini begins by explaining every detail of gardening and moves to preserving, cooking, and survival techniques. You won't find a recipe for a homemade apple pie, but you'll learn how to cook dandelion greens, pickle eggs, and make your own jerky.
I think this book is absolutely amazing. I want to try every single thing I read in this book. What a treasure trove of knowledge Pellegrini has shared in this book. I highly recommend it to all!
Thank you to Waterbrook Multonah and Clarkson Potter Publishers for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
