“Anyone with a garden has access to the most local and freshest seasonal food available.” This quote from Monty Don pretty much sums up their take on how easy it is to use fresh produce. Monty and Sarah Don’s book, Fork to Fork, shows that their love for cooking food is matched only by their love for growing their own food. They believe that an awareness of how food is grown is important in how best to cook it, and this book links the two. The process of preparing a meal begins with what seeds to buy, and follows from there right through to cooking methods. It’s packed with great recipes, things like Braised Chicken and Pork Pie, Cavolo Nero Salad with Warm Chilli Dressing and Rhubarb Tart. It’s a great book for anyone that takes their interest in food through to the garden, or anyone looking to do this. Available at Chefs Warehouse for R350.
