I want to share with you 4 cooking and baking books to read.

My passion for real food, real cooking, real baking and real healing and the knowledge behind them all has exploded!

Cooking and Baking Gifts

My parents gifted me with cast iron and two (of the four) books for Christmas.

Cooking and Baking with Cast Iron via www.agutsygirl.com Ditch the #Chemicals

I’ll be honest, I’m a little intimidated by cast iron. It just seems like a whole new breed of cooking and baking for me, but eventually I’d love to replace all of our cooking and baking pots and pans with cast iron. Why? Because doing so will help ditch even more chemicals, and that is one of my 2014 Unprocessed Goals.

To help with this intimidation and my passion to learn everything I can about real food cooking and baking, I’ll be reading, studying and learning even more…all year long, with 4 carefully selected books.

4 books in one year might seem like a trivial amount. That is, until you see how thick these are….

4 Cooking and Baking Books to Read agutsygirl.com #cooking #books #baking #healthyliving

  1. Cooking for Geeks

    This is a “real science, great hacks, and good food” book. As I skimmed through it immediately, I knew this was the perfect book for my nerdy cooking ambitions. The book is full of everything from kitchen organization to flavors and ingredients, baking variables and chemical interactions. Cooking and baking sound knowledge is the key to real kitchen success. I’m about to learn it.

  2. The Science of Good Cooking (Cook’s Illustrated Cookbooks)

    I think the front cover verbiage says it all, “Master 50 simple concepts to enjoy a lifetime of success in the kitchen.” This 475+ page book is packed with science. Cooking and baking come down to science, and the more I can understand about it, the better. The first time I opened the book, I landed on page 373 where there was a whole diagram on “Butter 101.” I think I instantly fell in love.

  3. Grow Organic, Cook Organic

    I’m not interested in making it any sort of immediate goal to grow all my own organic food. At some point, I’d love to start. For now, I want to learn about it. This book contains information about organic foods, with many accompanying recipes. I’m in need of some new inspiration!

  4. Healing Foods for Special Diets

    I already know there is a ton in the book that I will not agree with. But lest what anyone things, I always like to hear out all sides. Furthermore, the book is packed with information about a ton of different foods and other diseases I’m not as familiar with (i.e. diabetes, cancer, and arthritis). The more I can understand about food’s healing powers, the better.

Knowledge is power.

Healing the body with food and lifestyle is my passion.

I can’t wait to dive in!

Have you read any of these books? Thoughts? Interested in reading any with me?

  1. Nice post. Inspires me to think of 4 books related to my field that will help me grow. A breathing exercise book, a fermentation book… hmm… and maybe Omnivore’s Dilemma.
