My Book of the Year,
This review is from: Stephanie Alexander's Kitchen Garden Companion: Dig, Plant, Water, Grow, Harvest, Chop, Cook (Hardcover)
A brilliant tome covering the history of the fruit or vegetable, planting, growing hints and harvesting times with storage hints in an article normally a page long. Not in the least daunting for a beginner and not patronising for the accomplished gardener The next few pages are devoted to a range of recipes, 'Good Housekeeping' style.
I bought this book as a gift but have now shared it with the family. Even my husband the original non-gardener has been so taken with the book's no nonsense practical advice and organisation. It's going to be fun investigating where to buy some of the intriguing new names and flavours.
