From Publishers Weekly
Kerr, best known as the Galloping Gourmet television cooking personality, serves up new recipes and reflections on gardening in this lighthearted cookbook. Like many amateur gardeners, he was motivated to grow his own food by a desire both to improve his diet and to support local, sustainable, seasonal agriculture. In a compact chapter, he explains everything the impatient beginning gardener needs to get started. This section includes basic information on soil improvement, pest management, watering and weeding, germinating, composting, and crop rotation. The bulk of the book is devoted to detailed growing information and recipes for more than 60 fruits and vegetables. Fans of Kerr's lively style on the Food Network and in his cookbooks (Day-by-Day Gourmet) will enjoy this combination of jaunty gardening adventure and healthy and diverse recipes. Line drawings throughout. (Mar.)

The recipes that I have so far tried have been SO good that it inspired me to purchase his "Minimax" cookbook (which sounds as if it might be an appliance owner's manual but never fear, it is not, LOL) which I received today and plan to try out over the next few weeks.
I especially recommend the Cauliflower with Faux Cheese sauce. It will "convert" even the most stubborn cauliflower-hater (or cheese-sauce-hater for that matter!). That recipe alone is worth the price of the book IMHO.
Younger folk may not remember Kerr's television show with all the humor and fun (The Galloping Gourmet)but I do and learned a lot about cooking - Graham Kerr continues to make changes, make recipes even simpler yet very tasty, and, together with his wife Treena, are active in Christian and community service. He welcomes input thru his website. You won't be disappointed in this book if you like gardening and easy cooking, plus being a healthy active person.
