A celebration of the new old-fashioned approach to livingNfrom soapmaking to sewing to bread baking and much more. It is not about extreme, off-the-grid-living, but these projects are decidedly unplugged and a little daring.
From the Publisher:
The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home is not about extreme, off-the-grid living. It?s for city and suburban dwellers with day jobs: people who love to cook, love fresh natural ingredients, and old techniques for preservation; people who like doing things themselves with a needle and thread, garden hoe, or manual saw.

Ken Albala and Rosanna Nafziger Henderson spread the spirit of antiquated self-sufficiency throughout the household. They offer projects that are decidedly unplugged and a little daring, including:

* Home building projects like rooftop food dehydrators and wood-burning ovens
* Homemaking essentials, from sewing and quilting to rug braiding and soap making
* The wonders of grain: making croissants by hand, sprouting grains, and baking bread
* Adventures with meat: pickled pig?s feet, homemade liverwurst, and celery-cured salami

Intended for industrious cooks and crafters who aren?t afraid to roll up their sleeves, The Lost Arts of Hearth and Home will teach you the history and how-to on projects for every facet of your home, all without the electric toys that take away from the experience of making things by hand.
Provides how-to information for crafters, cooks, hobbyists, and armchair homesteaders on a variety of old fashioned made-by-hand projects, including quilting, soap making, and bread baking.
