I received this wonderful book through the post a few weeks ago and I’ve been meaning to post about it. The reason I haven’t is because I’ve been too busy reading it! It’s amazing.
The author and illustrator, Mary Woodin, sent it to me because she read my post on botanical illustration. And encouraged me to take the course that I went on. What a nice thing to do?
Anyway, I love it. It’s the perfect mix between lovely illustrations of fruit and vegetables (and seed packets too – very cute) and some useful homespun recipes.
It follows the seasons and offers some unusual but delicious-sounding recipes like Apple and Ginger Meringue Cake and Pink Grapefruit Salad Dressing. All of which are on my list to try.
