Another gem !,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tender: Volume I, A cook and his vegetable patch (Hardcover)What a book!
First artistically it is a joy to the eye, so even if you only keep it as a coffee table type of book, it is well worth it, and particularly so if you are a cook AND a gardener.
I too am a fan of that other great book, Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook (very highly recommended and if you haven't already done so I would say buy both as they so complement each other!).
Nigel Slater's new book brings the category to another level because, simply put, this is Nigel and his great style both in writing and in cooking: interesting quality recipes as well as a very personal way of presenting them, this time from a double angle: that of a cook and a gardener.
A great read, a great inspiration (ideas as well as tips) and a great comforter (meaning comfort food of course but also the joys of gardening with its highs and lows for every one including the author...)
To me a book addict, a homecook and a (small scale ) gardener the book fitted the bill at all levels, thumbs up from France!
If you never bought anything from Nigel Slater, buy this one, you won't regret it (but beware it will set the mark very high and/or get you hooked...).
