This book will help you answer two difficult questions: ‘What difference can I make in the climate crisis?’ and ‘What should I eat tonight?’
During dinner one night, Frank Holleman wondered what the most effective solution for climate change might be. His research brought him to food, which is responsible for a quarter of all greenhouse gases. In his eyes, this was good news, because changing food is not dependent on technology but our choices.
But those choices aren’t always easy, especially when they mean changing our habits and doing things differently. Frustrated with most meatless recipes, Frank set out to make sustainable cooking easier. In the process, he discovered new tastes, became a better cook and most importantly, he found new hope in the stories about sustainable farming.
With simple language and inspiring anecdotes, Frank dissects the underlying issue of the climate crisis. Fork Ranger draws a bridge between our plates and the land our food comes from. Without ignoring the urgency of the problem, his positive outlook is a refreshing tone in a subject characterised by doom scenarios.
The recipes use veggies as star ingredients and include a few meals that show us how meat can be a tastemaker rather than the main ingredient. The recipes are simple and easy, and yet they dare us to be more adventurous. The aim of Fork Ranger is to help total beginners and broaden the perspective of home chefs.
