• FOOD FIGHT: THE CITIZEN'S GUIDE TO THE NEXT FOOD & FARM BILL

    CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

    If you are interested in reforming America’s food system, we highly recommend this new guide. Informed input from concerned citizens is the only thing that will counter the powerful vested interests and bring us a fresh food/farm policy that serves public health, job creation, land stewardship and even national security.

    Every five years, the U.S. Congress passes complex legislation called the Farm Bill. Primarily accountable for setting the budgets and work plans for the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Farm Bill is the essential economic and policy engine that drives our food and farming system and provides nutritional assistance to tens of millions of Americans—many of them children. In recent years, more and more citizens are realizing just how much is at stake in this political chess game.

    Originally published in 2007, Food Fight is Daniel Imhoff's highly acclaimed primer on the complex issues contained within the Farm Bill. Now in an updated and expanded edition, Imhoff looks at this important issue. Food Fight offers a critical resource that can help concerned citizens deconstruct this challenging bill, organize in their communities and press their elected representatives to serve the public good, rather than vested interests.

    The Guide explains:

    • The Farm Bill’s connection to the national obesity epidemic…
    • The problems with subsidizing the expansion of corn-based ethanol…
    • The myths of “cheap food”…
    • Who wins and who loses from heavily subsidized industrial ag systems.

    If you eat, pay taxes, and care about the health of our citizenry, the fate of family farmers or our country’s food security, this book is for you.

    Includes a foreword by Michael Pollan.

  • FROM THE WOOD-FIRED OVEN

    Most baking books focus simply on how to bake bread or pizza in a wood-fired oven, but From the Wood-Fired Oven is unlike other baking books. From recipes on how to get maximum use out of a single oven firing to the first live-fire roasting or drying wood for the next fire, this book encompasses a wide range of useful topics for home and artisan bakers. Leading baker and instructor Richard Miscovich offers a new take on traditional techniques for professional bakers, but presents his ideas simply enough to inspire nonprofessional baking enthusiasts as well.

    Most people know that some items can be baked in a masonry oven with the wood fire burning. But many may not know that other foods can be baked after the ashes of that fire have been brushed out, using the immense store of heat that remains in the masonry mass of the oven dome and the oven floor. This book explains how you can easily and naturally use all the conditions of temperature, humidity and radiant heat that the oven produces as it gradually cools.

    What comes first -- pizza or pastry? Roasted vegetables or a braised pork loin? Clarified butter or beef jerky? Readers will find methods and techniques for cooking and baking in a wood-fired oven in the order of the appropriate oven temperature.

    In addition to an extensive section of delicious formulas for many types of bread, readers will find chapters on:

    • Making pizza and other live-fire flatbreads
    • Roasting fish and meats
    • Grilling, steaming, braising and frying
    • Baking pastry and other recipes beyond breads
    • Rendering animal fats and clarifying butter
    • Food dehydration and infusing oils

    Appendices include oven-design recommendations, a sample oven temperature log, Miscovich's baker's percentages, proper care of a sourdough starter, and more. From the Wood-Fired Oven is more than a cookbook. It reminds the reader how a wood-fired oven (and fire, by extension) can draw people together and bestow upon them a sense of comfort and fellowship. Cooking and baking from a wood-fired oven is a basic part of a resilient lifestyle and a perfect example of valuable traditional skills being used in modern times.

  • NATURAL HOME 14" BAMBOO SLOTTED SPOON

    The Natural Home bamboo kitchen utensils are a perfect blend of style and functionality. The 14-inch-long slotted spoon complements the rest of the collection.

    Tough, durable and lightweight, bamboo is a natural in the kitchen. One of nature's most sustainable resources, bamboo is stronger than oak and reaches maturity in just four years — without pesticides. Bamboo's density makes it naturally water-resistant, which inhibits germs and bacteria. It won't scratch your pans like metal and doesn't absorb moisture like conventional wood.

    Though used like timber, bamboo is a grass that self-propagates as it spreads underground via a network of rhizomes. A white oak tree takes 120 years to grow to maturity; bamboo takes three-and-a-half to seven years. This self-regenerating plant grows without pesticides and needs very little water; some species grow as much as 3 feet a day. Because of its fast growth rate, bamboo sequesters carbon dioxide at faster rates than hardwood trees — another bonus for the environment.

    Care instructions: Hand wash only.
    Manufactured in China.
