Britain’s foremost food writer Nigel Slater returns to the garden in this sequel to Tender, his acclaimed and beloved volume on vegetables. With a focus on fruit, Ripe is equal parts cookbook, primer on produce and gardening, and affectionate ode to the inspiration behind the book--Slater’s forty-foot backyard garden in London.
Intimate, delicate prose is interwoven with recipes in this lavishly photographed cookbook. Slater offers more than 300 delectable dishes--both sweet and savory--such as Apricot and Pistachio Crumble, Baked Rhubarb with Blueberries, and Crisp Pork Belly with Sweet Peach Salsa. With a personal, almost confessional approach to his appetites and gustatory experiences, Slater has crafted a masterful book that will gently guide you from the garden to the kitchen, and back again.

I own the hardback version of this book and love it! The book itself is gorgeous, containing beautiful pictures and great pairing information, but the book is so casually written that some of the recipes are kind of confusing- but not so bad that it would be considered a negative. The casual writing is actually one of my favorite aspects of the book. Definitely a must if you love cooking/baking with fruit and definitely if you grow your own.
Not only are there great recipes, but I love the background information and the narrative.
The photography is perfect, recipes easy to fallow, it just make you go to the kitchen a try.
