In Grown & Gathered, Matt and Lentil Pubrick's first book, they tell you all that they know about growing, gathering, nurturing and cooking your own food.

The first part of the book is Matt and Lentil's guide to producing your own food. The information, advice and projects can be used whether you have a 3-acre block or a courtyard with planter boxes. The Grow chapter shows you how to grow vegetables and fruit in whatever space you have, using the most earth-friendly practices; Gather explains how to forage for things like mushrooms, native greens and wild fruits; Nurture provides guidance on raising your own animals, from chickens and bees to cows.

The second part of the book features over 100 delicious, nourishing and creative wholefood recipes. There's a host of staples, everything from how to prepare and sprout grains in a traditional way, to making and maintain a sourdough culture, and techniques and recipes for preserving and pickling. Other super tasty dishes include greens and kimchi pancakes; sweet and spicy turnips; fig, bacon and zucchini pizzas; duck ramen; and carrot crepes with burnt oranges and labne.

About the Author

Matt and Lentil began by selling the produce from their farm in Tahbilk, Victora, to some of Melbourne's top chefs, restaurants and cafes, encouraging chefs to adopt principles of local, real produce and sustainable farming and packaging. But they craved more. They wanted to extend the conversation. They decided to open their van doors to the people of Melbourne, selling their home-grown vegetables and trading flowers from the back of it. They soon sold out week after week and their education became something sought after. They are now authors, educators, bloggers, and advocates for sustainability and a bright future! Grown & Gathered is their first book.
