Home is where the heart is...
This book is very close to my heart. It's about no-nonsense, simple cooking with great flavors all year round. When I began writing it, I didn't really know what recipes I would come up with, but something began to inspire me very quickly...my vegetable patch!
I came to realize last year that it's not always about looking out at the wider world for inspiration. Being at home, feeling relaxed and open, can also offer this. I love to spend time at home in the village where I grew up, working with the boss, Mother Nature, in my garden and seeing all my beautiful veggies coming out of the ground.
Inside you'll find over one hundred new recipes, plus some basic planting information and tips if you fancy having a go at getting your hands dirty as well!
"Each chapter includes gardening information...and there are dozens of gorgeous color photographs. Highly recommended." Library Journal
With this companion book to his new Food Network show, the irrepressible, much-loved chef returns with a new collection of more than 100 fresh, healthy recipes as well as advice on growing vegetables.
