"It used to be that every great cook knew the importance of using butter and other traditional ingredients. For nearly half a century, however, this was lost. Back to Butter is like a sigh of reliefâ??an old friend has finally returned home." - Joette Calabrese, homeopath, public speaker, and author

"In Back to Butter, authors Molly and Sandy deliver a candid and heartfelt approach to addressing some fundamental questions: What is real food and how should it be prepared? And what are the advantages of nourishing oneself in this manner? The recipes and advice are carefully thought out to reflect the wisdom of our ancestors, with the book's photography further accentuating these important words. This book is a labor of love, both in writing and in living a lifestyle." - Raymond Silkman, D.D.S.

Back to Butter is a rich resource in this regard, packed with wonderful, mouthwatering recipes, beautiful photographs, and pure, unadulterated nourishment." - Greg Merti, M.D.

"I've often wondered how we went so far astray with the simple act of feeding ourselves. Unearthing the path to finding our way back to simple nourishment is like hacking through a forest of odd diets, claims, and products. Back to Butter cuts through the clutter to present a road to sane eating rooted in traditional diets." - Evan Kleiman, chef, author, and radio host of L.A.'s "Good Food"

"I like that the book starts with a detailed look at what a traditional foods diet means and why it makes sense. The first several chapters also delve into the practicalities of a traditional food diet: stocking your pantry, evaluating ingredients at the store, and basic techniques like making buttermilk and cooking quinoa that serve as foundations for the recipes that follow." - TheKitchn.com

"For those new to traditional whole foods, there is no better place to start than Back to Butter. Molly Chester and Sandy Schrecengost take the guesswork out of preparing foods key to health and healing, from kefir to pâté. Even those long familiar with the principles of traditional cooking will be delighted and inspired by the recipes in this beautifully illustrated volume." - Sally Fallon Morell, president of The Weston A. Price Foundation
