Read from the Book
How to Read This Book One of the biggest challenges I faced when writing this book was explaining in words the precise details of how to make something, when in fact I don’t typically think about cooking in such a way. I wish you could just come over and I would show you! Words can often make easy tasks seem more difficult than they really are, and this book is far from advanced. Read through the recipe first, then go for it, referring to the recipe as necessary. As I suggested above, you should trust your own intuition. I rarely offer measurements for salt and pepper because I feel everyone has their own preferences. I prefer less salt and tons of pepper, while Hugh likes the opposite, so I found it best to allow people to make that call on their own in most cases. You must taste as you go to figure this out. I would suggest finding a salt that you like and using it consistently. Different types of salt contain different minerals and have a different salinity, so a pinch of one is not always equal to a pinch of another. There are books dedicated to the art of using different salts, and this is not it. I use a fine-grain sea salt or pink salt in everyday cooking, and Maldon sea salt flakes for finishing dishes or sprinkling on top of some sweets. Do you have the space (and the proper climate) to grow a lemon tree? You should plant one if you do. Fresh citrus juice adds a brightness to food that is unmatc

About the Author
SARA FORTE discovered a love for whole foods when she volunteered at an organic farm while working toward her English degree at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. The interest led to an internship in Italy at a bed-and-breakfast and cooking school, jobs at a few different markets, and eventually a food blog, Sprouted Kitchen (sproutedkitchen.com), that she produces with her husband, Hugh. She writes recipes and stories about life while he documents their whole food approach to eating well. Her work has been featured in InStyle, Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Fine Cooking, The Kitchn, Etsy, Food 52, and EcoSalon. The Sprouted Kitchen was a recent finalist in Saveur’s Best Food Blog Awards for Best Food Photography. Sara continues to freelance in recipe development and take on small catering jobs on the side. They currently live in Dana Point, California, working, eating, and inspiring people to cook fresh, real food. HUGH FORTE is a self-taught photographer whose work was born from traveling and wanting to document the life playing out around him. Although Hugh focuses most of his energy on wedding and lifestyle photography, he created Sprouted Kitchen as a gift to Sara so that they would have a creative outlet together, and he has since begun to experiment with a fresh approach to the art of food photography. With an aesthetic inspired largely by the natural beauty of the subject, his eye pairs well with Sara’s cooking style. Hugh’s work has been recogni
