Praise for The Modern Larder

“I love the thinking behind The Modern Larder, that the starting point for your meal can be the ingredients already in your larder, your fridge, your cupboards at home. Michelle’s larder celebrates both the ingredients we already know and love to use but also champions those which don’t spend enough time in the limelight. I’m inspired to reach again for my bottle of verjus, to seek out more bee pollen, to reclaim my schmaltz!” —Yotam Ottolenghi, author of PlentyJerusalem, and Flavor   “It’s no surprise that Michelle McKenzie has applied her considerable smarts to this brilliant, beautiful tome. Minimalist and deeply alluring at once, The Modern Larder is the kind of book I will proudly display like art, but dip into again and again for inspiration, wisdom, and recipes so good I want to make every one.” —Sarah Copeland, author of Every Day is SaturdayFeast, and Instant Family Meals
