I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is an interesting book that was around 3.5 stars for me.

The book talks about how the authors define sustainability and how to be more sustainable through shopping, cooking, and living. The book has interesting tips like making green-friendly cleaners and fun projects like repurposing a dish rag. There are also recipes included in the book, but not as many as I expected. The recipes focus on reducing food waste and include unique ingredients, like how to use more of an orange to make cake. There are some nice pictures throughout the book.

Overall an interesting find!

Thanks to NetGalley for this ARC! I loved how this book took the reader through being sustainable from all aspects, and the emphasis on second hand first, buying what you can if you can afford the nicer/better quality when second hand doesn't work is was really nice. I liked the layout of the books, the recipes were nice, and the DIY additions were a nice touch.

The beautifully simplistic book, 'Sustainable Kitchen' by the couple Sabhbh Moore and Abi Aspen Glencross is wonderful in that it speaks to the most basic essential need we have to feed ourselves and possibly those we love and what better place to start but with food and eating. When we start with our kitchen in sustainability we are getting to the heart. We make food choices every day, how we buy it, how we store it, how we cook it, how we serve it, and how wrap up leftover food. But what if we understood as clearly as we make food choices every day, that everything food touches makes an impact on our environment. Food is a powerful purchase. It makes a big statement and in the simplicity of this book it goes to that basic but offers ideas, projects and a great foundation of why our thought process regarding those daily choices matter.

I appreciated the information that they provided and how from beginning to end they wrote about details but not to the point of being overwhelming and offered resources at the end of the book to dive into a specific topic regarding food at the readers' leisure and interest. There are recipes but one of the favorite things about the book was glass. Many throw glass jars away not really fully grasping all that went into that glass and for me cherishing that first of all it's stored in glass, not plastic, Yea! There are spices moving into plastic containers instead of glass jars. I keep every glass jar for leftovers, or seeds, whatever I can use it for. I just how that we can all understand every purchase we make we tell a story, give a statement, and yes it can be overwhelming but if we do simple practices collectively then we can make an impact.

I appreciated and enjoyed this book that speaks to me body and soul.

I would like to thank NetGalley, the publisher, White Lion Publishing for the opportunity to read and review 'Sustainable Kitchen' by Sadhbh Moore and Abi Aspen Glencross.

Publication date: May 3, 2022 (A co-worker had this book so I could read and review it in less than one hour...lol!)

Thank you to NetGalley, the author, and the publisher for the opportunity to read and review an advanced reader's copy of this book. This in no way affects my review, all opinions are my own and may be affected by the fact that I currently have nothing better to do than read multiple books a day!

SYNOPSIS
*****************

Founders of the Sustainable Food Story, Abi and Sadhbh, have put together tips and step-by-step projects on how to adapt your kitchen habits to a more eco-friendly way of life.

Whether you are unsure about the best places to shop, what to do with your leftover lemons or how best to clean your kitchen without impacting the environment, Sustainable Kitchen is the complete guide to changing the way you think about food and the kitchen, in a way that is healtheir for you and healthier for the planet.

What a great idea now that the season of fresh produce is approaching us. This is sensible advice...a bit preachy at times ... but a great way to get your home and kitchen more sustainable and less toxic. I am manic about not throwing out usable things time: hubby now knows to leave his orange peels out so I can use them to freshen up the litter box! Lots of great advice in here: I just wish that there were more recipes!

This combination DIY guide and cookbook is broken into practical categories: "Sustainable Food" talks about what sustainability actually is, its impact, what's going on with the carbon and water in our food, how to shop, alternatives to shopping—I'm a forager, so I'm very happy to see that option included—and teaches us the terminology needed to navigate sustainable resources. In other words, this section gives you a crash-course in sustainability to get you up to speed. Then, it's time to dig in.

In "Creating a Sustainable Kitchen", we learn how to make the busiest room in our homes more sustainable. This includes equipment recommendations, best practices for storage containers (making your own bowl covers will leave any bread maker squealing happily), smart use of energy and water, and more. I'll be giving the garlic soap pesticide a try as bugs are a constant battle around here. This might be my favorite section, as I'm always looking for ways to make my country kitchen a smarter place to work.

The next two sections take us into preparing our food. "Cooking Foundations" teaches efficient ways to make better use of the food you have. There's a few recipes to get you started in sprouting, preserving and krauting, as well as things to do with the bits and pieces of veg that you've been throwing away. And then finally, we get to the recipes! "Cooking" is filled with simple, wholesome, appetizing recipes accompanied by fresh and clean, simplistic photography.

After we enjoy our meal, it's time to tidy up. "Clean Down" is just what you might think. You'll learn about eco-friendly cleaning products and practices, and alternative ideas for what to do with your waste.

If what you've read so far has you excited about introducing positive changes into your lifestyle, there's no need for you to feel alone in your endeavors. "Seeking a Sustainable Community" is filled with resources to help you get involved with others.

I recommend this cookbook or anyone who's looking for practical ways to live a more eco-friendly lifestyle. Home gardeners will love the recipes, kids can have fun making ecobricks, and new cooks can form healthy habits right from the start. The book's beautiful enough to make a lovely gift. Buy two so you can keep one for yourself. And now I'm off to see about making a Spring Greens and Quinoa Stew.

My thanks to authors Sadhbh Moore and Abi Aspen Glencross, Quarto Publishing Group – White Lion, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.

I would like to thank Netgallery and the publisher for send me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This book was an interesting read. It covered topics on food choices, kitchen setup, and cleaning. It talks about being able to grow your own herbs and things, which is something I've always been interested in. It also gave a few recipes which I can't wait to try. There were a few DIYs in the book which were also a nice touch. The layout of the book was easy to follow.

Very comprehensive and good guide regarding everyday sustainable living at home. You get the basics for how to choose the best options in buying, storing, and cooking food, as well as growing greens and cleaning the kitchen. It is easy to read and has a good layout. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in this subject, but has not yet gotten into this subject, or have already started creating a more sustainable kitchen, but might need some help and encouragement on the way.

What I love most about Sustainable Kitchen is that it is not simply a cookbook, it is addresses every aspect of the kitchen. Food waste is such a meaningful component of sustainability and food but what about the crockery and textiles that you stock your kitchen with? What about how you store produce in your fridge to get the maximum output, and what you store it in? This is a holistic approach to mindfulness and sustainability that will challenge you to think more intentionally about your impact.

There are recipes though, of course. Some standouts to me include Heritage grain Gyoza with stir-fry leftovers, lentil moussaka, and fermented ketchup.

The book also features some wonderful suggestions for cleaning and waste. Pick this one up! We all have kitchens and this is an important read for us all.

Thank you to Netgalley and Quatro Publishing Group for the Arc - Sustainable Kitchen is out now!

I’m all in when it comes to a sustainable kitchen. Loved some of the ideas in this book, mainly buying used kitchen stuff and being ecological. The book has a few recipes and scopes out a bunch of ideas about sustainability. Love the bug spray recipe and will definitely be trying it.

I received a complimentary copy to read and voluntarily left a review!

This is a simple guide explaining a holistic view to sustaining ourselves. From making choices when buying to utilising more of each element, the book sets out to give us the information and books to achieve a more sustainable lifestyle.
A worthy addition to the bookshelf and one that I will keep dipping into.

So grateful for the chance to preview Sustainable Kitchen at a time in my life where I am trying to make little changes myself for a more sustainable household. Filled with tips, crafts and recipes this should be a staple on everyone's shelf who want to live simply, eat sustainably and think about the planet. A lovely book.

A good resource for anyone looking to make some sustainability minded changes in their home. Quite a few tips for reducing waste/single use products in the home, some interesting (vegetarian) recipes, and lots of food for thought around sustainability.

The beautiful cover drew me in but the content and information had me hooked. Sadhbh does an excellent job keeping the reader engaged while discussing and educating the reader on sustainability, shopping for sustainability, and living a minimal waste life.

I was inspired and motivated to look into my current practices and will be recommending this read to anyone else wishing to become more aware of their footprint.
