In this book, Gehring offers a guide to country living skills that is as charming as it is practical. Full of sweet illustrations and gorgeous photographs, step-by-step instructions for essential skills such as building a chicken coop are interspersed with country lore and old-fashioned tips and tricks. Readers will learn how to raise chickens, make candles, cchn butter, grow vegetables, make jams and jellies, dry herbs, ferment vegetables, make cheese, and more!

The Tasha Tudor Family Cookbook: World-renowned artist Tasha Tudor charmed and fascinated fans with her sweet illustrations and simple lifestyle. This cookbook echoes the cultural and family narrative so accurately and beautifully reflected in Tasha Tudor's art and life. The receipts (what she called recipes) also suggest Tasha's philosophy. "In all things moderation," she would say, then with a laugh, "except gardening."
Tasha’s grocery list was never long. She had a robust vegetable garden, a large chest freezer, and well-stocked larder. She created countless meals over many decades, and they were all very good. When possible, Tasha purchased fresh food, the origin and method of production of which she knew. But if she couldn't, or didn't want to, she didn't worry. Frugality was on her shopping list as well.
These receipts—from Tasha’s Poppyseed Cake to Shepherds Pie, Potato Soup to Chocolate Pudding—have been the mainstay of Tasha's family for generations, and are, for the most part, from the original cookbook she began as a young woman. The simple, comforting, and delicious receipts are accompanied by her beautiful watercolors and new photographs of the food and Tasha’s homestead.

Abigail R. Gehring is the author or editor of more than a dozen books including Back to Basics, Homesteading, and The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Country Living. She’s practiced living self-sufficiently since her childhood in Vermont, being home-schooled, home-canning jams and jellies, and enjoying natural crafts. She and her husband Tim are in the process of restoring an 1800s farmstead in Marlboro, Vermont.

Winslow Tudor grew up in Vermont next door to his grandmother, Tasha Tudor, and now helps run the family business. He is involved daily with the preservation of Tasha's house, built by her son Seth, and the garden she created around it. In his spare time Winslow splits wood in anticipation of long New England winters, takes care of the chickens, walks the dogs, writes, takes photographs, bakes fresh bread for his children, and is generally very busy with his family, which is his preferred way to spend time. He lives in Marlboro, Vermont.
