THANE PRINCE & MATTHEW BIGGS    Book Number: 89834    Product format: Hardback

Packed with advice from the queen of preserves Thane Prince and gardening guru Matthew Biggs, here are prize-winning recipes and interviews with show veterans. Fruit, vegetables, flowers, cakes, chutneys and jams, enter a world of tents, fruitcakes, carnations and carrots, where competitive gardeners and home cooks offer up produce to be judged by eagle-eyed experts. But what about the inner workings, the official guidelines for selecting and presenting produce? Discover what the judges are looking for and how to win in this unique insight into the quirks and qualities of a great British tradition. Quintessentially English, every beautifully designed double page spread has a series of colour photographs, captions and checklists, what judges score highly, defects to avoid and points available for condition, uniformity, size and colour whether it be your salads or your celeriac, pears or currants. All colours and shapes are explained and there is a gallery of winner's photographs and a visual gallery of beautiful flowers like gladioli and dahlias. 224 big colourful pages in sturdy hardback. 22cm x 26cm.
