The essential companion for anyone wanting to grow, harvest, and cook their own produce. Once upon a time, having pumpkins growing rampant at the back fence and hens sitting protectively on their eggs was a common experience for many people. However, today the reliance on packaged food has seen the loss of this vital link between patch and plate. Grow Harvest Cook is about rekindling the thrill of a home harvest, the fulfillment of a pantry stocked with homemade goodness, and the joy of sharing a lovingly prepared meal made with your own produce.

Grow Harvest Cook
is an essential companion, whether you have a small urban garden or are looking to establish a substantial kitchen garden for your home. This stunning 400-page book takes the reader through more than ninety types of produce-from almonds to oranges to zucchini-providing simple information about growing conditions and harvesting tips, ideas for making the most of your produce, including preserving, drying, and freezing, and fresh and simple recipes to make all year round. Alphabetized for easy reference, each page is filled with gorgeous full-color photographs of the produce and the recipes. Food never tastes better than when you've grown and prepared it yourself! Grow Harvest Cook will inspire you to green your thumb, don your apron, and share your own good food with friends and family.

Review:

"Reviewing the pages of this combo gardening and recipe book has made me eager to start receiving something that's been picked fresh, locally. Between the photos and recipes, the summing growing and harvesting season can't begin soon enough for me. As you turn each page, you will discover spectacular, full-color photographs...I become hungry, always a good sign for a cookbook. The recipes I’ve sampled have delivered on their promise of fresh, tasty meals.” -About.com
 
"The book is well laid out and easy to use, with a good list of contents at the front and a very useful index at the rear. I found lots of suggestions for combining some ingredients which were fresh and new to me and I think that is this book's best feature - it gets you thinking about different ways to use familiar ingredients. This is a solid, hardback book - which looks like it will withstand being handled in the kitchen without falling to bits, a huge bonus if you have ever had old favorite paperback books disintegrate due to handling! This book also has some lovely illustrations and beautiful photographs. Grow Harvest Cook has been added to the bookshelves." –the-compostbin.com
