1. Whole Larder Love: Grow Gather Hunt Cook

Rohan Anderson

For anyone interested in local, sustainable, fresh, organic, humane, or slow food, comes Whole Larder Love, showing you how to hunt, fish, forage, and grow your own food and how to prepare it. Going beyond farm-to-table to encompass garden, forest, field, stream, and storeroom-to-table, author Rohan Anderson vividly illustrates the benefits of a lifestyle geared towards providing for yourself from the natural world.

Whole Larder Love author and ultimate DIY-er Rohan Anderson is a family man and a modern-day hunter-gatherer living just outside the historical town of Ballarat, an 1800s gold rush town in Australia. Within this rural landscape Anderson has capitalized on the opportunities for many a culinary adventure. Primarily concerned with how to live off of the land and provide himself and his family with fresh, local food, Anderson has become a passionate hunter, fisher, forager, gardener, pickler, and sometimes barterer. Anderson now wants to share his secrets and experiences in order to help move people away from unhealthy eating habits and people away from unhealthy eating habits and towards a more environmentally sustainable food industry.

Food is an integral part of our lives. And in recent years, more and more people have been asking questions about the food they eat: How does that food get to our plates? How was it grown? What chemicals were used? How was the animal treated? What are the impacts on the environment?

In Whole Larder Love, Anderson gives us easy to follow tips and instructions for setting up a home garden, the best practices for hunting and fishing, how to identify and collect edible food growing in the wild, and the proper tools, gear, and resources to use. Additionally, he gives us a slew of exciting recipes and preparation methods for our ingredients once they’ve been collected.

This combination how-to manual and cookbook is beautifully illustrated in full-color with Anderson’s own photographs, capturing his ingredients, gear, rural surroundings, and exquisite dishes in rich and vivid detail. And with suggestions for possible substitutions and tips on bartering and selecting food from farmer’s markets, Whole Larder Love is perfect for foodies, farmers, hunters, gardeners—even urbanites looking to inject their lives with a little rural romance—and anyone else interested in getting more involved with the origins of the food they eat.

Mouthwatering recipes include: Kale Fusilli Tris, Potimarron & Gorgonzola Soup, Vindaloo Hare, Quail Ragu with Polenta, Wild Duck Risotto, Pumpkin Gnocchi, Venison Ossobuco, Eel Cake with White Beans, Chili-Pickled Wild Mushrooms, Spud & Nettle Soup, Arrabiata Fish & Chips, Pork Rack Roast with Honey-roasted Wild Pear and many, many more!

  3. The 5 Essentials: Using Your Inborn Resources to Create a Fulfilling Life

Bob Deutsch Ph.D.


  Raise the bar to become the best version of you—and have fun doing it As a cognitive neuroscientist, anthropologist, and entrepreneur, Bob Deutsch has spent a lifetime studying people. What he has found is that most of us set the bar too low in our lives, both personally and professionally. We choose not to pursue our greatest ambitions because we feel we are incapable of reaching them. But he has also found that we are each born with the fundamental abilities to live the full, creative, dynamic life we dream about. Filled with great stories and interviews with inspiring people, including Wynton Marsalis, Richard Feynman, and Anna Quindlen, The 5 Essentials opens the door to a way of being more alive than you have ever been.  In this compelling book, Deutsch shows us how to access and use our five inner resources — Curiosity, Openness, Sensuality, Paradox, and Self-Story — to open our lives to unimagined possibilities. The 5 Essentials will appeal to readers of The Element and The Tools.
