This is much more than a recipe book. The first part is given over to a detailed and accessible guide to growing plants to eat – sowing and planting, how plants grow including information about soil and compost. This is followed by separate instructions for growing a variety of vegetables and, for each one there is a recipe. They include onion soup, borlotti bean burgers, chard noodle stir fry and beetroot chocolate loaf. Very clearly laid out and illustrated with photographs.
