Starred Review. Oliver, host of numerous TV cooking shows and author of seven other cookbooks, is just as passionate about food and cooking as he was when he burst on the scene in The Naked Chef. One of his newest fascinations is with gardening, and this companion volume to a PBS series of the same name shows off the fruits of his labors in the garden he started several years ago. His recipes have always featured fresh, seasonal ingredients, but here they are organized by season and within each section by ingredient, from Crispy and Delicious Asparagus and Potato Tart in spring to the Best Winter Veg Coleslaw. Each chapter includes gardening information (e.g., how Oliver grows asparagus), and there are dozens of gorgeous color photographs. Highly recommended.

I wish I had read all the reviews before I bought this book. I thought it would be a book to learn to cook at home without fancy stuff. Oh, no, Jaime is very fancy at home. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Art Queen
