Delia Smith has always been most concerned with the quality and flavour of the ingredients she uses, and nothing comes fresher than fruit and vegetables from your own garden. Last year, the opportunity came for her to work with her longstanding friend, garden expert Gay Search, to create her own kitchen garden for the first time. This guide, written by Gay with 50 recipes from Delia, is for Delia and others like her who are interested in good food and want to try their hand at growing their own. It follows a year in the life of her kitchen garden, with a chapter devoted to each month, containing detailed advice on sowing and planting, fruit and vegetable varieties and how to harvest. With failsafe recipes by Delia that use the produce at its peak, this book is expected to do for kitchen gardening what How to Cook did for culinary teaching. Suitable for first-time horticulturists and cooks of all levels, the book is lavishly designed and has over 250 colour photographs.
