Review

Gay Search is one of Britain's best-known television gardeners. In the Nineties, she devised and presented BBC2's Front Gardens. She worked with the late Geoff Hamilton on titles, including Old Garden, New Gardener, and from 1995 to 2001 she was a presenter on BBC2's Gardeners' World. She has written many bestselling books, including Front Gardens, Gardening from Scratch, Gardening Without a Garden, The Impatient Gardener and Gardeners' World Through The Years. Gay is gardening editor of Sainsbury's Magazine and shares her garden in London with her husband, two sons, two cats and, naturally, assorted wildlife. Delia Smith is Britain's bestselling cookery author, whose books have sold over 18 million copies. From her first job as a cookery writer for the Daily Mirror magazine in 1969, Delia published How To Cheat at Cooking, then presented Family Fare for BBC1. Her series How To Cook, was a huge success. In 2002 she produced her Vegetarian Collection, then The Delia Collection - Soup, Chicken, Chocolate, Fish, Italian, Pork, Baking and Puddings. Delia is a director of Norwich City Football Club, where she is in charge of Canary Catering, several restaurants and food and wine workshops. She is married to the writer and editor Michael Wynn Jones. They live in Suffolk. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

Colourful and descriptive, this book takes you through every season of your vegetable garden- a must for those of us who think the season only runs from spring to autumn. It shows you have to utilise all 12 months. Unlike other gardening books, this also gives you interesting and different recipes to take your home grown produce from earth to the table. - A great buy!

Christmas is coming (I write this review in November) and the cooks are getting fat, please buy a copy of their latest load of ... recipes. There are, I suppose, three contenders - Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, and Delia. Well, sorry Jamie. And I could lust after Nigella ... excuse me while I just take a moment. But Delia! You'd come home to Delia, wouldn't you? I mean, with Delia, it goes way beyond lust! She's already taught half the British Isles how to boil an egg and butter toast; some of us even treasure a video clip in which she instructs on the roasting of the perfect duck. (Pause for a moment while I launch into a Homer Simpson moment ... Mmmmmm, duck.)
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.

Format: Paperback
This is a beautifully illustrated and organised book, each chapter is dedicated to a particular month of the year and features large, full-colour photographs. It would make a nice gift for somebody who might be interested in growing vegetables and cooking with more varied, fresh ingredients, but who has no particular vocation for either activity.

Beyond making an interesting book for the coffee table, for the novice and more experienced gardener this book is probably of little practical utility.

I got this from the library as it looked interesting, was shocked to see the price of it on Amazon. Sure, if you are new to veggie growing you will find some good tips and a month by month gardening guide, some lovely pics and a few recipes but you can do much better for much, much less, "The Vegetable & Herb Expert" by Dr Hessayon for example, less than [] on Amazon and of course, loads of free stuff on the web.

I bought this book for my daughter at Christmas as she is planning to grow her own veg, and she loved it. It is very comprehensive and easy to follow for a beginner, with the added bonus of Delia's recipes. An excellent book.
