Explore the kitchens and gardens of some of the most famous chefs and restaurants in the UK in this beautiful book by Cinead McTernan. From Jack Stein and Raymond Blanc to River Cottage and The Star Inn, the book invites you to go behind the scenes into the kitchen gardens and personal recipe books of 20 head chefs.
Arranged by region, you can explore the restaurants, kitchens and gardens – from fruit to veg to herb and from plot to kitchen – so you can recreate their delicious recipes at home or visit the restaurants for yourself. Tuck into sumptuous dishes including brill with heritage tomato and white miso, scorched onion with crispy rocket and pesto, or raspberry cranachan among many other starter, main and dessert course ideas.
Each recipe starts with more on the chefs and restaurants themselves and includes useful information on seasonal vegetables, with a calendar tip box on sowing, care and harvest, plus kitchen garden secrets from the chefs on growing the vegetable, fruit or herb used in the dish. Every dish promises to impress as you recreate restaurant-quality food at home using seasonal produce fresh from the allotment or greengrocer – celebrating local produce and producers as you cook.
