Christopher Lloyd, the great British garden writer, lives at Great Dixter, which, thanks to him, is something of a gardener's Mount Olympus. Now Lloyd reveals that the kitchen garden at Great Dixter is as much a part of his daily life as the flowerbeds. Gardener Cook is a cookbook for the passionate vegetable gardener, with sturdy, simple recipes, many borrowed from one of British cuisine's luminaries, Jane Grigson. The beautiful photographs are all of vegetables in their natural state, either growing or just-picked; Lloyd says, in an aside, "I hate those books that have glamorously laid out meals in violently coloured illustrations, which entirely put me off the product." There's no putting us off the product in Gardener Cook. Lloyd writes so charmingly even of unpopular vegetables as the beet and parsnip that the reader will feel an intense desire to serve "Beets Baked with Cream and Parmesan Cheese" at dinner parties. The quantities in each recipe are thoroughly Americanized, though some of the ingredients, such as partridges, may seem exotic to those not able to avail themselves of a fairly sophisticated supermarket. The gregarious Lloyd is scrupulous about giving the number of servings for each recipe, and one suspects that he never underestimates how much one person can eat. --Barrie TrinkleAbout the Author:
