Overview


In today's world, most of our food is processed, imported, and marketed for convenience and year-round availability. For anyone who knows the difference between a supermarket tomato in January and a just-picked one in July, From the Garden to the Table is a welcome account of one family's quest to grow and eat their own fruit, vegetables, and herbs.
More than just another gardening book, or a variation of a cookbook, From the Garden to the Table celebrates the vital link between growing, cooking, and eating food. For Monty and Sarah Don, the process of preparing a meal begins with thinking about what seeds to buy. The authors grow and cook their own food in one continuous process and with one common aim - enjoyment.
This highly original book contains clear and detailed instructions on how to cultivate and cook a wide range of vegetables, herbs, and fruits. Firmly rooted in the authors' real-life experience and accompanied by full-color photographs that chronicle a year in their kitchen and garden, this book will inspire gardeners and food lovers to integrate their gardens and kitchens wherever they live and whatever their taste in food.
