A Year at Otter Farm
Inspiring Recipes Through the Seasons
It was the taste of a ripe mulberry that gave Mark Diacono the inspiration for Otter Farm, the Devon smallholding where he runs courses to share his love of fresh, seasonal food. In this beautiful book, illustrated with his own superb colour photography, he charts the story of the farm, and shares its seasonal recipes: Warm Salad of Padron Peppers, Cherries and Halloumi; Chicken, Pork and Borlotti Bean Casserole; and a refreshing Cucumber Ice-Cream.
Back to the Garden with Mr Digwell
Growing Your Own and Cooking it to Make a Little Go a Long Way
For around 40 years, up to the 1980s, Mr Digwell dispensed his vegetable-growing wisdom via a cartoon strip in the Daily Mirror. Now his straightforward, illustrated instruction and advice on growing your own, which was invaluable during post-war austerity, is as relevant as ever. Based on the original strips, but updated for today’s gardeners, the book has advice on growing vegetables, fruit and herbs; combatting pests; growing in a greenhouse; and storing, preserving and cooking your produce.
