Harnessing traditions from previous generations to preserve food is not only a passion for Shannon Stonger, but a way of life. Shannon walked away from a career in chemistry to raise her family. Shortly thereafter, she and her husband moved their family off the grid to discover a more simple, agrarian life. With only minimal solar-powered electricity, Shannon relies on practical food preservation techniques, such as fermentation, to provide nutritious food for her family while cutting food costs. In Traditionally Fermented Foods, Shannon shows readers how to preserve food using traditional fermentation techniques, often without refrigeration. An alternative to canning and freezing, traditionally fermented foods do not require modern technology to preserve. You can learn Shannon’s authentic preservation technique, which she depends on daily to put food on the table, so you know they work. You can also learn how fermented foods work, how to make fermented foods and how to use fermented foods in recipes. This book contains over 80 recipes with corresponding photos.

Make your own real, non-dairy cheese at home—traditional methods for making plant-based cheese As plant-based, dairy-free diets continue to expand in popularity for health and ethical reasons, cheese often becomes the “last hurdle.” Much of what passes for non-dairy “cheese” lacks the quality and depth of authentic, cultured cheese. Yet for aspiring DIY plant-based cheesemakers, much of the knowledge of this new craft is scattered in isolated kitchens, and there’s no real reliable guidance to what works, what doesn’t, and why, when making real, cultured plant-based cheese. This book aims to change all that and bring this new craft into the kitchens of the world. Written by a pioneering plant-based cheesemaker who draws deep from the well of experience, The Art of Plant-based Cheesemaking is a clear, highly practical guide that extends traditional cheesemaking methods into the realm of plant-based media as a substitute for dairy. Coverage includes: • Understanding culturing and fermentation • Essential ingredients and equipment for crafting plant-based cheese • Plant and nut-based media and how to make them • How to create and train plant-based cultures • Delicious recipes for quick cheeses • Advanced recipes for cultured and aged cheeses • Resources for sourcing equipment and cultures. Packed with step-by-step recipes, straightforward processes, and encouraging experimentation, this book makes plant-based cheesemaking accessible for beginners and serious foodies alike. Simply everything you need to make delicious non-dairy cheese right at home. Karen McAthy is Executive Chef of Zend Conscious Lounge and Chef and Founder of Blue Heron Creamery in Vancouver, BC, which creates and supplies authentic cultured plant-based cheeses to restaurants, retail outlets, and private customers.
