This review is from: Wild Garlic, Gooseberries and Me: A chef's stories and recipes from the land (Hardcover)
Cotter's book is completely absorbing, from his stories of a childhood which sparked a passion for well-prepared veg to the recipes which are so simple to follow and foolproof enough for the less experienced cook. Some of the ingredients are impossible to find in the local supermarket but sound intriguing enough to warrant an attempt at growing in the garden; but don't let a lack of green fingers stop you - there's plenty of recipes which can be made using staples from the fruit and veg section.
Especially straightforward and tasty are the watercress soup with walnut and red pepper salsa, the aubergine and halloumi parcels and a wonderful layercake of aubergines, potatoes and goat's cheese.
Definitely worth a look.
