Celebrating the best seasonal produce and ingredients from author Carina Contini's favourite artisan food producers, the Kitchen Garden Cookbook offers a selection of delicious recipes for every month of the year, inspired by her Italian family heritage and Scottish roots.
Carina and her husband, Victor, restored a large Victorian garden on the outskirts of Edinburgh, turning it into an established kitchen garden that serves their award-winning restaurants today. This beautiful cookbook tells their story alongside stunning recipes making the most of the season's fare, with growing notes from their expert head gardener and personal recollections from Carina's Italian Scots family life.
Tuck into haddock and leek fish cakes in February and auntie's apricot meringue in May, or roast grouse with crushed new potatoes and gooseberry chutney in August, and pear and praline tart in November. There is a recipe for every special occasion, from parties to Christmas, as well as everyday dinner and how to make the most of produce you might be growing yourself. The only problem will be choosing between the incredible dishes and flavours, but it promises to be a cookbook you'll keep coming back to.
Carina Contini's Kitchen Garden Cookbook, published by Frances Lincoln Limited, is available to buy from all good book shops, RRP £25.
