ONE-POT GOURMET GARDENER


ONE-POT GOURMET GARDENER

CINEAD MCTERNAN    Book Number: 83219    Product format: Hardback

The thrill of growing your own food, from the moment you plant the seed to the final triumphant tasting, just can't be surpassed. As the author explains, you don't need a huge garden to grow produce, in fact you don't even need a garden - some crops will flourish perfectly well on a windowsill or balcony. Pots of colourful lettuce, aromatic herbs, baby carrots, glossy-leaved beetroot and plump scarlet tomatoes are easy to care for. She advises which types of vegetables to grow together to make an attractive feature, and includes practical tips, suggesting that, for example, herbs can be grown in small pots of free-draining compost, inserted into larger pots which contain the more thirstier vegetables. After the introductory sections on choosing your varieties, planting, feeding, pests etc., the main part of the book contains guidelines for the initial planting into containers and then recipes for the cooking of the crops when they are ready to harvest. For instance, Gazpacho lists the various sweet pepper, tomato and cucumber seeds, together with a couple of garlic cloves - foliage texture as well as an added zing to the finished dish - which can all be planted in one container, before a step by step method for making the dish when the plants are grown. Courgette and Fennel Tart, healthy Micro-Veg Salad, Summer Pudding and Pimms Jelly follow. Divided into recipes for picnics, soups and salads, quick suppers, tasty accompaniments, and drinks and puds, this attractive, colourful book is a novel combination of growing and cooking. 144pp, colour illus.
