The Garden to Kitchen Expert by D. G. Hessayon and Judith Wills

Lovereading view...

Sue Baker's view...

An invaluable kitchen reference, you’ve grown it – now what do you do with it? Or even more of a challenge you have a glut of, typically, courgettes and are in need of inspiration. Listed by each fruit and vegetable you can look up tips for storage, serving where no cooking is required, general preparation methods and then recipes which cover savoury and sweet with ideas for breads, cakes and drinks also plentiful. Colourful and easy to use, the layout follows the tried and tested Expert format, managing to cram in over 680 recipes. It even includes recipes for eating weeds, but not, alas, my perennial enemies, couch grass and bindweed.
