To celebrate Easter in a much healthier way than eating loads of chocolate* I have three copies of The Garden to Kitchen Expert book to giveaway :)
We're about to enter that wonderful time of the year when our plots and gardens really start to produce big time and we look towards our cookbooks for inspiration for getting the most out of our crops, particularly those gluts. Whilst this book is a little more unusual to its companions in the Expert stable, the style and layout are in the same tradition and is designed to be a companion to the Vegetable & Herb, Fruit and Greenhouse Expert volumes.
There's over 680 recipes to tempt you, arranged broadly into Vegetable and Fruit sections with a brief nod towards Herbs, Ornamentals and Weeds too. There's advice on storage, preserving and good basic recipes for jams, chutneys and other preserves. None of the recipes are complicated, so it's ideal for someone in the Can't Cook Won't Cook mould, especially as there's also No Cooking Required and Basic Cooking information for each vegetable and fruit featured. It reminds me of the first cookbooks I acquired when I first left home, but is much more comprehensive.
All you need to do is tell me in the comments below your favourite recipe you turn to when dealing with a glut. If you don't grow your own, then do tell me about your favourite seasonal recipe instead. Make sure you leave me enough information so that I can get in touch with you in the event I pull your name out of my magic terracotta pot. If I can't contact you, then someone else gets it! The closing date is midnight BST, 2 weeks from today i.e. 8th May.
Sorry, this one's open to UK readers only as postage costs are too expensive for elsewhere.
Don't forget that today's the last day to enter my Bird Care competition and there's still a little time to treat yourself and grab a 20% discount on Bath Gardening School courses (as featured by Countryfile no less), or to win a very Posh Cloche :)
* = something I most certainly will be indulging in later ;)
