Description: Since it was built in the English countryside in the sixteenth century, spectacular Lake House had been lived in by only five families before Sting, Trudie Styler, and their children settled in. It was this sense of history that encouraged Trudie and her family to move there -- that and the opportunity to grow their own food, given an active interest in the ecology of the land and concern for their family's health.
Beginning by cultivating leafy greens and potatoes, along with basic fruits like apples and pears, she and her husband have lovingly transformed the property into a working organic farm, with more than sixty acres of fruits and vegetables, four types of livestock, and honey- and cheese-making facilities. "The Lake House Cookbook," written with family chef Joseph Sponzo, offers a mouthwatering array of dishes based on the farm's yield.
More than 150 recipes include soups and starters, salads and vegetable dishes, main courses, desserts and baked goods, and drinks and preserves for every occasion and for the whole family. Dishes range from Roast Chicken with Corn, Fava Beans, and Tomatoes to Roast Rolled Leg of Lamb with Chilli Paste; Swiss Chard and Pearl Barley Soup to Sea Bass with Sauteed Wild Mushrooms and Roast Carrot Confit; and from Herb-Brushed Polenta Bread to Rustic Open Peach Pie.
And while the emphasis is on organic, the ingredients themselves are very accessible and can easily be found in some variety at local stores. Lavishly illustrated with more than 300 photographs and wonderfully spirited, "The Lake House Cookbook" is a celebration of wholesome food and healthy living.
