This book is a combination of a recipe book and a vegetable gardening book – the perfect combo in my opinion!
Each chapter introduces a food and then contains some recipes. The last page of each chapter then has a page or two titled “how I grow…” where Jamie explains how he grows the food or purchases it (such as lamb or wild game). He also provides a list of his favourite vegetable varieties, seed suppliers and useful websites (although the latter is mainly UK centric) at the back of the book.
This is my go-to book for recipes, especially his pizza crust recipe and shortcrust pie crust recipe. The recipes contain some additional info, not just the ingredients and steps. The recipe photos and additional photos between recipes are high quality and show Jamie in his garden harvesting vegetables and preparing them for cooking.
A great purchase and excellent recipe and gardening resource. Very inspiring for those wondering if they should start growing their own vegetables.
