If you grow your own vegetables, or are able to shop at a farmer's market or farm shop, or you are lucky enough to have an old fashioned greengrocer and good local butcher, then this book will help you enjoy food at the peak of its flavour. The textures and tastes gained from cooking fresh ingredients in traditional ways will bring you a new cuisine - garden cuisine; the taste of fresh seasonal food, grown and picked when nature intended it to be picked, and cooked in way that enhances its natural flavour. The Seasonal Cookbook starts with growing fruit and vegetables, and then shows you how to use seasonal produce to create some wonderful dishes. It's cooking the way cooking used to be. Relish the subtle flavours to be had from a roast turnip, and savour the exciting versatility of carrots! You will discover: - Fresh Spring vegetables, juicy Spring lamb and Easter treats - Summer fruit, delicious salads, and tasty barbeque meals - Warming and wholesome meals to sustain you through the long winter, plus authentic Christmas fare - How to use autumn's harvest to provide 'plenty' through the winter months. Each section has the how-to of growing and the how-to of cooking brought together - as though Diana had asked Paul to gather such and such an ingredient from the garden for supper.
