Dig, plant, water, grow, harvest, chop... cook!
Stephanie Alexander knows that nothing tastes as good, and as natural, as a meal made from ingredients in one's own garden. There's something special going on there that the local supermarket can't offer.
The first fifty pages are dedicated to the garden - planeting and growing all the ingredients that will soon enough become your new local store. The recipes that fill up the next few hundred pages are divided and organised by their feature ingredients. Each section has a quick guide for planting, watering, and soil information - followed by specialty dishes. Growing spring onions? Try making Hokkien Noodles with Spring Onion and Ginger Sauce and Takeaway Roast Duck. Got a knack for thyme? Try the Buttery Lemon Thyme and Vanilla Boomerangs.
It's perfectly organised, and full of amazing green thumb things for you to try, and eat!
