We are pleased to announce that the inaugural Edible Books selection is Make the Bread, Buy the Butter by Jennifer Reese.
The author shares her journey through a series of kitchen-experiments including homemade peanut butter, bread, junk foods, and more ambitious projects like cured meats and cheese. She then offers her assessment of each experiment: make or buy?
Reading this book should tickle the inner mad-scientist in all of us, inspire some reflection on our individual make vs. buy decision algorithms, and maybe even spark a few debates amongst those of us who already have strong opinions on topics such as: Peanut butter—crunchy or smooth?
Happy reading, and we look forward to a spirited discussion. ~Christina & Natalie
