This book is as beautiful as Martin Crawford's other book, 'Creating a Forest Garden', and I enjoyed reading it. I think the only problem with it is that, having set such a high standard with his previous book, it is very hard for this one to measure up. Again, there are lots of beautiful pictures, but the focus this time is on recipes rather than information about the plants themselves. Many of the recipes sound interesting, but I don't feel that this book quite hit the same awe-inspiring level as 'Creating a Forest Garden'. I'd still recommend it though.
I will cherish this book! It is so inspiring, bringing the forest garden alive as potential yummy culinary cuisine. No longer will you be bemused and confused by your produce! Very well presented and easy to follow recipes, with heaps of ideas and exciting creations to try. If you have a forest garden, you must have this book!
