Advice for the type of wine to drink (and make!), what vegetables to grow and why, how to keep fruit fresh and the best way to make a sauce are all inside this delightful book. This will be a book I return to to make simple delicious meals!
This book inspired me to grow radishes this spring. I cannot wait to put in rows of various kinds, from the Easter Egg variety to French Breakfast and Round Black Spanish. Don't they sound delicious?
Here's my first recipe, inspired by the book.
