United States -(AmmoLand.com)- PowerHouse Books is pleased to announce the May 2016 release of A Year of Practiculture by Rohan Anderson.

Rohan Anderson, foodie extraordinaire and author of bestselling Whole Larder Love (2012)—is all about cooking and eating real food: food he’s grown through the seasons and off the land that he tends, or wild food that he hunts and forages from the fields and the bush. He spent a year documenting his food creating and making in A Year of Practiculture: observations, experiments, successes, failures, advice and answers, and over 100 delicious recipes that record a practical, mostly sustainable lifestyle. ( tiny.cc/bhl37x )

Rohan Anderson left his desk job doing graphic design, digital mapping, sales, and marketing in the city of Melbourne for the richer pleasures of living a simpler life on the land. Over the years he has developed his own principles of practical living. Practiculture is about direct involvement in the day-to-day elements of survival, and at the heart of it, the rewarding choice to grow, hunt, and forage beautiful, healthy, and sustainable food.

A Year of Practiculture features 100 of Rohan’s simple, rustic, seasonal recipes along with a collection of honest stories and experiences of Rohan and his young family as they learn the realities of living a practical life surrounded by the bounty (and hardships) of the land through the seasons. Written in Rohan’s passionate, funny, and no-nonsense style, he uses a mixture of humor and poetic writing to tackle the deeper issues that our modern food system raises.

Recipes include rabbit backstrap with spring morel and sage; cold smoked bacon; grilled broccoli, almond, and sriracha salad; salmon with pimenton crust and chili aoili; bottling fruit; elderflower cordial; crumbed quail with roast beetroot mash; sourdough bread; venison port pie; and more!

This is the ultimate guide to living on the land in modern times, illustrated throughout with stunning photographs of the landscape through the seasons and the recipes created from it.

About the Author:

Rohan Anderson is a modern day food warrior. Raised on a small farm in rural Victoria in south east Australia, Anderson developed not only an affinity for nature, but also an understanding, and appreciation of the role nature plays in providing sustenance. Anderson has taken these lessons into his adult life where he now grows, hunts, fishes, and forages in wild and urban surroundings to feed his family. He also documents his adventures through photography; sharing his recipes, slow food philosophies, and (sometimes contentious) views on his hugely popular blog, Whole Larder Love. Describing himself not as a chef, but rather a family cook, Anderson is influenced by rustic, peasant-style cooking, with minimal fuss involved. It’s unlikely that you’ll find Anderson at the supermarket; instead he is usually wandering around his backyard garden, strolling through forests and paddocks fossicking for wild mushrooms, and fishing in cool mountain streams. In 2012 powerHouse Books published Rohan’s first book, Whole Larder Love: Grow, Gather, Hunt, Cook, which is now in its third printing.
