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