The Seasonal Cookbook How to Turn Fresh, Seasonal Produce and Vegetables into Delicious Home-cooked Meals by Diana Peacock, Paul Peacock

The textures and tastes gained from cooking fresh ingredients in traditional ways will bring you a new cuisine - garden cuisine; the taste of fresh seasonal food, grown and picked when nature intended it to be picked, and cooked in way that enhances its natural flavour. The Seasonal Cookbook starts with growing fruit and vegetables, and then shows you how to use seasonal produce to create some wonderful dishes. It's cooking the way cooking used to be. Relish the subtle flavours to be had from a roast turnip, and savour the exciting versatility of carrots! You will discover: - Fresh Spring vegetables, juicy Spring lamb and Easter treats - Summer fruit, delicious salads, and tasty barbeque meals - Warming and wholesome meals to sustain you through the long winter, plus authentic Christmas fare - How to use autumn's harvest to provide 'plenty' through the winter months. Each section has the how-to of growing and the how-to of cooking brought together - as though Diana had asked Paul to gather such and such an ingredient from the garden for supper.


'Mouthwatering suggestions for every season of the year.'

About the Author

Paul and Diana Peacock practise self-sufficiency in Manchester. They believe strongly that the way we live is changing towards making more of our own food, and even some of the goods we use from day to day. Paul has written extensively for the gardening press, edits the Home Farmer Magazine with Diana, and has written fifteen books on gardening, self-sufficiency, beekeeping, wild food, and butchering. Diana has over thirty years experience of caring for a family of five, often on a tight budget, and is the author of two books on home baking and jam and preserves.
