Combining great food with environmental principles, growing and shopping tips with a taste of the good life, THE ACORN HOUSE COOKBOOK is a must for those who love cooking and care about the planet. British households dump just under a third of all the food they buy - more than 15p of each GBP1 spent on food is wasted. Furthermore, about one-fifth of our carbon emissions are related to the production, processing, transport and storage of food. Arthur Potts Dawson is on a mission to change our throwaway habits. With his personal guide to seasonal food and how to cook it, award-winning recipes, and chapters on every aspect of simple, sustainable cooking - from how to source locally-grown to kitting out an eco-kitchen (complete with wormery) - the culinary revolution starts here!
