This is a big, general, American cookbook emphasizing sustainibility and self-sufficiency. It celebrates the vital craft of cooking with an eclectic repetorie of more than 600 recipes for foods in all categories from salads to baking. Deep Springs College and Ranch serves as the frame for this all-purpose cookbook. As Joy of Cooking is rooted in the Germanic spirit of the Rombauer/Becker family, all the recipes in Deep Springs are all from the chowhouse at Deep Springs College, a prestigious and unique ranch/two-year college program in the Sierra Nevadas that teaches liberal arts; democratic culinary principles; and sustainable farming and ranching. Over 600 basic recipes, from butter to pies to homemade soap. A percentage of the recipes have a Southwestern flavor profile (enchiladas, chilis) due to the location of the college in the Southwest US. For all skill levels. Includes instructions on such 'chores' as washing dishes.
