Here is a bright new take on foodscaping your garden. Brie Arthur's Gardening with Grains is a passion project that grew from a light-bulb moment. That is when she realized we've been missing a dynamic piece of the burgeoning foodscape movement.We've learned the joys of interplanting our blooming flowerbeds with veggies, herbs and berries, but what about the grains, those ancient and beautiful grasses that practically gave us civilization? Why couldn't we grow wheat, barley and oats for winter; corn, rice and sorghum for the warm season? Gardening with Grains is a pioneering book, a companion to Arthur's The Foodscape Revolution. Richly illustrated, it combines history, environmental benefits and personal stories with simple how-to's for planning, growing and harvesting those six important grains...plus 12 chef-tested recipes for inspiration. This is a design book, too, with planting patterns and suggestions, no matter how much or how little garden space you have. These grains are ornamental grasses, and they show off beautifully in any setting. The grouped plantings reveal the grains' varied colors and textures, interplanted with flowers like poppies, larkspur, snapdragons, nigella, zinnias, sunflowers and marigolds. Not only flowers, but salad greens and other decorative veggies play well with grains. Gardening with Grains is foodscaping for fun, beauty and bragging rights. . . and maybe even some homemade beer and bread.(Genus illustrations and garden plans by landscape architect and botanical artist Preston Montague.)

R284 R237 Discovery Miles 2 370 Save R47 (17%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

From fresh seafood to luxurious pasta and heavenly desserts - using lemons and limes in your cooking will make your food sing. A squeeze of lemon juice can bring a dull sauce or lacklustre soup to life as its tartness cuts through and brings out flavour in a subtler (and healthier) way than salt. Smaller, sharper but more intensely fragrant than lemons, limes work best with exotic, spicy food. Some dishes call for the sharp, clear lift of lemon, at other times the richer fragrance of lime is more appropriate. They are both perfect as an antidote to the heat of fresh chilli or pungent garlic, and the best of friends to herbs and olive oil, roast meat and freshly grilled seafood. Their brightness is also perfect in sweet, buttery desserts. Try a host of recipes including Lemon, Mushroom and Tarragon Arancini, Pork Dumplings in Lime-leaf Broth, Oven-baked Lemon Fennel or Lime and Chilli Sweet Potatoes. Ursula also investigates the history and culture of lemons and limes, their health-enhancing benefits, and explains how to grow your own.

There aren't too many ingredients which manage to bring flavour and adaptability to recipes and are actively good for you, but vinegar manages it, and this must-have new book, winner of the Jane Grigson Trust Award 2018, looks at how they have woven their way through culinary and medical history for thousands of years, and highlights the ways we can all benefit from vinegar in our diet. There is a growing interest in vinegars and a recognition of the role acidity plays in cooking, and within these pages, Angela Clutton shows how much can be achieved using just red or white wine vinegar in your cooking, as well as exploring the vast array of vinegars available. The range of vinegars on the market are expanding rapidly, and you can easily find fruit, herb, sherry, cider, malt, rice, balsamic and many types of red and white wine vinegars (from rioja through to champagne) on your supermarket shelves. The Vinegar Cupboard encourages cooks to have an arsenal of as many varieties of vinegars as they can fit in their kitchen; while we don't expect everyone to have a vinegar cupboard, we'd like to think this book will encourage a vinegar shelf at least! Photography, info-graphics and flavour wheels enhance the recipes in this collection, ensuring this is a usable and accessible book for all home cooks.

Fruit collects a dozen of the South's bountiful locally sourced fruits in a cook's basket of fifty-four luscious dishes, savory and sweet. Demand for these edible jewels is growing among those keen to feast on the South's natural pleasures, whether gathered in the wild or cultivated with care. Indigenous fruits here include blackberries, mayhaws, muscadine and scuppernong grapes, pawpaws, persimmons, and strawberries. From old-school Grape Hull Pie to Mayhaw Jelly-Glazed Shrimp, McDermott's recipes for these less common fruits are of remarkable interest--and incredibly tasty. The non-native fruits in the volume were eagerly adopted long ago by southern cooks, and they include damson plums, figs, peaches, cantaloupes, quince, and watermelons. McDermott gives them a delicious twist in recipes such as Fresh Fig Pie and Thai-Inspired Watermelon-Pineapple Salad. McDermott also illuminates how the South--from the Great Smoky Mountains to the Lowcountry, from the Mississippi Delta to the Gulf Coast--encompasses diverse subregional culinary traditions when it comes to fruit. Her recipes, including a favorite piecrust, provide a treasury of ways to relish southern fruits at their ephemeral peak and to preserve them for enjoyment throughout the year.

Vegetable Cakes - The most fun way to five a day! Scrumptious sweets where the veggie is the star (Hardcover): Ysanne Spevack Vegetable Cakes - The most fun way to five a day! Scrumptious sweets where the veggie is the star (Hardcover)

Why aren't we using vegetables in dessert? That seems obvious at first - they're not as sweet as fruit. Until you remember that a lot of fruits are quite tart to taste, and many veggies are quite sweet. We all know there's a spectrum - every child knows that many vegetables are really fruits, including avocados, tomatoes, peas, sweetcorn, courgettes, and bell peppers. In this truly innovative new baking book, Ysanne Spevack has made sure to include not only veggies that are secretly fruits, but also veggies that are 100% bona-fide vegetables, such as carrots, lettuce, spinach, cauliflower and onions. Why conform to the norm, let's embrace the strange and say yes to vegetables in unusual places! Vegetables are delicious, and of course they can all be sweetened, either by being marinated and mixed with something sweet (and healthy), or by having their natural sugars caramelised - or both. Many vegetables offer other plus points, like outrageous colours, or surprising textures. Take beetroots - how could you turn down such a wonderful colour? And lotus roots - the crunch and the shape is too extraordinary to refuse! The gorgeous spiralling shapes of the fiddlehead ferns make a tart of true artistry. And, of course, there are the health benefits of eating more veg. Many people struggle with ways to eat their recommended five (or more) a day, and parents often worry about getting vegetables into their children without a fight. Children are savvy to every trick to smuggle vegetables into their dinner, and can find the evidence a speck of green in a veggie burger within seconds. But give them a cake with a big cauliflower inside, and the silliness of it gets a foot in the door. The pure anarchy of putting soft leaves inside a layer cake or loaf engages most people's sense of humour. Once you're there, Godzilla Cake is a cinch! Other ideas are things of pure beauty, whether cascading radish slices offering unexpected juicy crispness to a pavlova, or swirls of purple radicchio adorning a rich and creamy cheesecake. Widen your perspective and enter into a brave new parallel world of possibilities. These recipes may feature some of the most familiar ingredients in your fridge, but in an enlightening and often entertaining way. Lastly, but most importantly of all, the cakes, bakes, cookies and treats are all absolutely wonderful to eat - which is Ysanne's aim, to indulge in the pleasures of baking and eating, with a side helping of health along the way.
