Can you guess I'm a fan? How could I be critical of this latest helping? Well, I can. It's not for everyone. Nigella might offer you the perfect recipes for that next, important dinner party, Jamie might give you enough hints to show off in front of the girl next floor, but this time, Delia isn't going to seduce you with magnificent cookery. "Delia's Kitchen Garden" is all about green fingers, not green salads.
The book is an attempt to introduce you to the joys of gardening, not just as an excuse for annoying the neighbours or growing regiments of flowers, but as an adventure in growing your own food. Given the BBC's success in delivering gardening and cooking programmes to a couch-bound public, it was inevitable this would happen. The notion is that you should be able to reach out your back door, harvest your own new potatoes, asparagus, strawberries, or peas, and whip up a mouth-watering Delia meal. Last time I looked out my back door there was half an acre of nettles ... but I'd bet Delia could suggest a dozen ways to cook them!
This book is a beginner's guide to growing your own food.Read more ›
Beyond making an interesting book for the coffee table, for the novice and more experienced gardener this book is probably of little practical utility.
