The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener – Book Review

 

One Pot

I’m thrilled to have been given a copy of Cinead McTernan’s  book ‘The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener’ to review.
As a keen gardener and…let’s face it…rubbish cook, this is a great book for those wanting to grow their own fruit & veg in a limited space (limited as in, in a pot!!) and create simple yet fabulous meals & drinks.

This book starts with very detailed basics on how to grow plants in general, from choosing the right compost & pots though to plant care & pests…absolutely brilliant for novice gardeners. It then moves onto a selection of recipes for picnics, soups & salads, quick suppers, tasty accompaniments to drinks & puddings.

Garden Pizza Pot

The idea is that you grow all (well…most) of your meal ingredients in one pot to use in the recipes.

Garden Pizza Recipe

Each Pot / Recipe comes with detailed instructions on exactly what to grow but you can of course adapt the plants or seeds suggestions if you can’t get the plants listed.

Ready-to-Eat Garden Pizza


This book is beautifully written & illustrated, perfect for novice gardeners & those, like me, who are cateringly-challenged. It would make a great gift idea.

The idea is to grow-your-own and eat-your-own produce.
Any book that encourages that gets my vote.

I love gardening books that also give recipes, Jane. This one looks like a worthwhile purchase. P.x

Grow your own is beginning to sound like a good idea to me, The shop veg in Aberdeen tastes much better than it does here.
