Lisa Kivirist and John Ivanko know what it takes to feed a young family, share energy-saving ideas, and keep guests clamoring for their hospitality. The couple not only writes award-winning books, they run a highly acclaimed bed-and-breakfast totally powered by renewable energy. A signature of Inn Serendipity is breakfast composed of ingredients grown just a stone’s throw from their front door.
While not all of us have a backyard in which to grow tomatoes and peppers, we may be able to nurture a small pot of basil or thyme on a sunny windowsill. And all of us can take steps to prepare fresh, healthful foods that’ll delight our appetites and purses. Lisa’s and John’s newest book, the Farmstead Chef, explains how.
In this Deep Roots Radio interview, Lisa and John talk about a growing national movement for healthful, flavorful eating that won’t break the bank, and that can free families from the fat and high cost of fast-food eating. They chat about recipes for the busy cook, for children, and for those who want to try dishes rooted in other cultures. They assure us that we won’t need to learn a new set of cooking skills or buy special equipment.
I hope you enjoy this podcast. You can learn more about the new cookbook and about their Wisconsin B&B at Inn Serendipity. [Audio below}
