The French country tradition of cooking from a "potager", or kitchen garden, has for centuries produced meals that are seasonally fresh, simple and sparkling with the essential flavours of their carefully grown ingredients. Arranged by season, this book features a collection of 60 recipes based on the very freshest fruits, vegetables and herbs that capture the full vitality of this age-old tradition. Illustrated with 85 colour photographs of the gardens, the ingredients and the finished dishes, this book provides a guide to cooking with home-grown or market-fresh vegetables and fruits throughout the year, and describes how a simple, small-space "potager" can provide all one needs to enjoy French cuisine at its freshest.
