This special reissue includes new introductory text and celebrates the vital link between growing, cooking and eating food all year round. For Monty and Sarah Don, a love of eating food must include an awareness of how that food is grown, and a love of growing your own food must include an active interest in how best to cook it. They demonstrate this philosophy in this seasonal month-by-month guide on how to cultivate and cook a range of vegetables, herbs and fruits which is accompanied by photographs that record a year in the kitchen garden at their home. Includes detailed instructions and gardening tips as well as more than 40 recipes to inspire food lovers to make the best use and appreciate the real flavours of home-grown food.
