Description
(One of the Denver Post's Best Cookbooks of 2010) Deep Springs is an organic farm, school, and working cattle ranch in the high desert of the Sierra Nevada. Tom Hudgens has been both chef and teacher there, cooking for hungry students who have been farming and taking classes all day, and also showing them how to cook with the milk, meat, and produce they have harvested. That farm-to-table mindset runs all through Hudgens's cookbook of essential, sustainable American food—everything from Red Chile Enchiladas and Mama Nell's Kentucky Bourbon Balls to ten different versions of beef stew, fruit pies, salads, and big breakfasts with eggs, bacon, pancakes, and grits. Hudgens also offers lessons in life skills, from the proper way to wash dishes to how to make homemade soap.

"If any of this year's cookbooks is headed for dog-eared longevity, complete with tomato-sauce splatters and flour-dustings, it's Tom Hudgens' The Commonsense Kitchen.... As appropriate for beginning cooks as it is for those with more experience, this one will stick around your kitchen for years."—Denver Post (Best Cookbooks of 2010)

"Written by a former chef at ... a working ranch where students partake in hard physical labor along with academics, and learn a good deal about food, from farming to butchering to butter making, this hefty volume is refreshing in its straightforwardness.... The recipes for the most part are simple and appealing. They include the expected manly, hearty fare, such as biscuits and gravy for breakfast, chicken and dumplings, and steak fried in beef tallow. But there are many more entries along the lines of an asparagus mushroom frittata and fennel, blood orange, and toasted almond salad, which celebrate fresh flavors and seasonal ingredients. And there are plenty of sweet treats (pear, ginger, and lemon crisp; goose egg pound cake) that would serve well as a reward for a hard day of work, on the farm or anywhere."—Publishers Weekly
