*** Special THANK YOU to BLOGGING FOR BOOKS for providing me with a review copy.*** My review is my own personal opinion.***


Georgia Pellegrini, outdoor adventurer and chef, helps you roll up your sleeves and tap into your pioneer spirit. Grow a small-space garden and preserve a little deliciousness for the cold months; assemble the makings of a self-sufficient pantry; learn to navigate without a compass for your next camping trip; or even forage for plants that give you energy.
Whether you’re a full-time homesteader, a weekend farmer’s market devoté, or anyone looking to do more by hand, this overflowing resource will help you hone new skills in the kitchen, garden, and great outdoors.

It includes:

· More than 100 recipes for garden-to-table dishes, preserves, and cured foods
· Small-space gardening advice on building a raised bed, choosing what to grow, and saving seeds
· DIY projects, such as Mason jar lanterns and homemade notecards
· Superwoman skills like assembling a 48- hour survival toolkit in an Altoids tin

Packed with beautiful photographs and illustrations, Modern Pioneering proves that becoming more self-sufficient not only means being empowered, but also having a lot more fun.


GEORGIA PELLEGRINI’s taste for simple food and outdoor adventure evolved as she grew up in the Hudson Valley, on the same land her great-grandfather owned and worked. She followed her passion to the French Culinary Institute and then to Gramercy Tavern, Blue Hill at Stone Barns, and La Chassagnette in France. Georgia is the author of two previous books, Food Heroes and Girl Hunter, and her writing has appeared in The Wall Street Journal, Bon Appetit, American Hunter, and The Huffington Post. She has been featured on Today, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and Iron Chef America. She lives in Austin, Texas.


This is the coolest book ever!
My hubby and I just recently planted our first garden and are trying to live a more conscientious, natural life…eating more whole foods etc.
When I first heard about Georgia’s book, I knew I had to get my hands on a copy!
Let me begin by saying that I was super impressed when it arrived in the mail. It was really thick and full and gorgeous. The color photos are awesome and inspiring in and of themselves….I could just sit and flip through this book all day long.
Honestly something that really intrigued me was the Altoid’s Survival Kit….I was like….what!?! I have to see this!
This book is awesome, full of so many ideas and tips and tricks…I want to try them all. The recipes are do-able and look delish- I’ve already marked several that I plan to try soon.
Modern Pioneering is a must have for every home!!!
