About the book
Delia Smith has always been most concerned with the quality and flavour of the ingredients she uses, and nothing comes fresher than fruit, vegetables and herbs from your own garden. So, when the opportunity arose for her to work with her longstanding friend, garden expert Gay Search, to create her own kitchen garden, she seized the chance.
This guide, now available in paperback, and written by Gay with 56 recipes from Delia, is for those who are interested in good food - free from pesticides - and who want to try their hand at growing their own.
It follows a year in the life of Delia's 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 Delia Smith recipes that use the home-grown produce at its peak, this guide is suitable for first-time horticulturists and cooks of all levels. The book is lavishly designed and has over 300 colour photographs.
