4.0 out of 5 stars Cool cookbook!!!!!, 3 Jan 2004
A BIG cookbook, there are 400 inspired, easy to make recipes for gardeners who cook or cook who garden.
Plus the graphic part are morden, they did't showyou the dish, but every now and then put a small lovely food or kitchen ware picture to get your attention....so you wouldn't get bore.
The most important point on this book is those recipes are come from different cooks or gardeners....if you don't like one, still can try others!!!
Finally taste are very personal stuff.

Only suitable for people who don't mind about photos.
I found out most US publish book got less photos then those publish in UK.
