Meet Author Rachael Kaplan on Thursday nite, July 28, 2011 at 7 pm in Amherst at Food for Thought Books Collective.

Readers will find concise how-to information that they can immediately set into practice, from 

making solar cookers to growing tomatoes in a pot 

to raising chickens on a tiny plot to 

maintaining the mental serenity of country life in the fast-paced city environment. 

Homesteading on a hot summer night. Maybe there will be wine.

Why do they grow things? What is it?

Kohlrabi (German turnip) (Brassica oleracea Gongylodes group) is a low, stout cultivar of the cabbage that will grow almost anywhere.  

A Kashmiri household may have this on their dinner or lunch plates three to four times a week.

But how to cook? Tried the turnip route which is mash or roast.  Trimmed the thing, cubed it, slathered in olive, amped up the toaster oven and walked away. Then it burned. Poor forgotten Kohlrabi. Surviving remains, not so hot. Forgot the garlic also. Bet that wouldn't happen in Kashmir.
