Where would a cook be without a garden?
Sheridan Roger’s The Cook’s Garden
is a celebration of the relationship between cook and produce, specifically produce grown by the cook him- or herself. In her introduction, Rogers connects her love of gardening to Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel The Secret Garden
, where a hidden garden is cultivated by a little girl – and in turn, she cultivates and grounds herself.
This attitude is the backbone of Roger’s revised classic. Within this updated edition, you’ll find three hundred recipes relating to fresh produce you can grow yourself, whether it be on a tiny patio or in a sprawling veggie patch. Fruits, vegetables and herbs are all covered within this cookbook, which picks a key ingredient – a herb such as rosemary, or a vegetable such as pumpkin – teaches you to grow it, and then spins dozens of recipes off it.
Follow Roger’s hints and tips, and soon you’ll be cooking the very food that you’ve grown – there are few greater satisfactions in life! Marinate goats cheese with fresh-grown chives, create a berry gratin with just-picked blueberries, or shell your own peas for a green pea and apple soup. Even if you don’t have a garden to grow, you’ll still find inspiration abound within The Cook’s Garden!
