The Animal Farm Buttermilk Cookbook
Ah, the age-old question -- you bought some buttermilk for one recipe, and now you have a bunch left over...so what should you do with it? Once you get your hands on this cookbook by Diane St. Clair, you'll never ask that question again. Nearly 100 buttermilk recipes fill the pages, including recipes to make your own buttermilk and butter. Hungry yet?
I don't think I fully appreciated all the ways that buttermilk shows up in our cooking until seeing all of these recipes side by side! I especially love the surprising ways that St. Clair has started using buttermilk, like whisked into a thick béchamel for pizza bianca and lasagna, or made into a chocolate cake.
