Review: Publishers Weekly - May 11, 2016

“This is a fine and important book, one that heralds with good spirit significant and necessary changes that clearly are on their way. The author has…produced a book that is an act of faith, a reservoir of information and a practical manual.” (on the 1976 edition)

Review by: Nancy Sleeth, author of Almost Amish and director of Blessed Earth - May 11, 2016

More-With-Less has been a go-to resource for forty years because it’s classic—reliable ingredients, timeless recipes, and practical advice for practical cooks. Like a favorite pair of jeans, you’ll find yourself returning to this cookbook over and over again. The best text for being a good steward of God’s creation while making memories around the table!”
