    DNF at 14%. I lost more and more confidence on every page as the author, despite her master's degree and nutritionist training, propagated lies, myths, and anti-science paranoia. The naturalistic fallacy is all over this book. The author pedestalises mediaeval peasants and farmers, while scorning the modern day working poor for not putting in enough effort! Not to mention the lack of Indigenous perspective. I tried to press on but when she mentioned notorious quack Weston Price I had to quit. DNF at 14%.

    A cute book with enthusiasm about eating well for less. Lots of encouragement and ideology, with some recipes too. Written by an Australian, and slightly adapted for the U.S. market -- the months of the seasons match the Northern Hemisphere, but some Down Under-isms remain, like "treacle" and "silverbeet" (molasses and chard, I believe).

    I was disappointed by the author not reinforcing the phrase "doesn't take an arugula scientist" by telling wacky stories about lettuce hi-jinks but other than that this is a solid read. The author is fonder of chickens than I am but the French and other Euro-centric cuisine recipes look tasty and time efficient I was disappointed by the author not reinforcing the phrase "doesn't take an arugula scientist" by telling wacky stories about lettuce hi-jinks but other than that this is a solid read.

    Forge provides some great ideas for how to live a more sustainable life, including DIY gardening projects, recipes, shopping tips, etc. I found parts of the book hard to relate to, as some of the recipes call for ingredients hard to find in the US (the author is Australian), and she uses a lot of meat products, and I am a vegetarian. Neither of those factors are really the author's fault though, just my two cents. Still very much worth the read!

    The sustainable, traditional homesteading information was useful, but the recipes were underwhelming.

    I got a few recipes to try. Some of her ideas are above my personal comfort zone.

    Very informative, though I only read half. A lot of recipes I would never use because of my family's tastes. Also, not as easy to find the things she speaks of where I currently live.
