Broth & Stock #CookbookReview







Broth and Stock from the Nourished Kitchen offers more than a dozen recipes for base stocks and forty recipes that use them. This paperback cookbook also discusses the history of broth and explains the difference between broth, stock, and bone broth. Most recipes call for bones, wine and water as the base; however, herbs and spices can be used to enhance its flavor. Though the book’s content may seem meaty, the author dedicated a chapter to fish and vegetables respectively. The Food Temptress enjoyed reading Broth and Stock for three reasons. One, it had images for each recipe. Two, the ease of making broth and stock as per the instructions. Three, cooks can create hearty, flavorful meals with inexpensive ingredients. Therefore, The Food Temptress recommends Broth and Stock from the Nourished Kitchen by Jennifer McGruther as a delicious winter read that warms the soul.
