Synopsis

This beautiful kitchen-garden cookbook, produced in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, contains step-by-step guides to show how easy it is to grow peas, beans, potatoes, carrots and more in your garden, in patio containers or in window boxes or on an allotment. Then transform your home-grown produce into delicious meals and desserts by following easy, step-by-step recipes.

By having fun growing different plants, children won't be able to wait to try their tasty produce, encouraging great, healthy eating habits.

Learn all about how plants grow, from seeds to seedlings, watering and weeding, to harvesting and composting.

Information on minibeasts and garden creatures show how nature works together to help plants grow.

Includes advice on cooking tools and utensils and healthy and balanced diets.

It's a lovely book: a beautifully-presented hardback which will stand a lot of use and there's even a useful glossary and efficient index.

Daily Express

A brilliant, brilliant cookbook full of imagination and packed with delicious info on both the growing and the cooking side of things. What better way to stimulate an interest in food than to really follow the whole process from start to finish. Utterly rewarding, and completely engaging!
