There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
However, for me there are rather too many recipes wth root veg, or winter salads. Quite a lot of the recipes are only attainable to people with their own gardens/allotments avilable to grow veg as much of the veg is simply not available to the average supermarket, or even greengrocer, purchaser. Items like chicory and kohlrabi are simple for someone with a garden to access but not simple for the average cook. I did really like the section at the back on dressings - it's nice to have something other than a French dressing or mayonnaise to dress a salad. And the section on pickles is also a nice addition.
Overall, I'd say it's a book for the gardener who likes to cook and is a worthwhile purchase for anyone in that category.
Working my way through it page by page.
