Book Review : The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener by Cinead McTernan

The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener by Cinead McTernan

The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener by Cinead McTernan will be released on 2nd April 2015.

With our allotment being quite small, I always plan carefully what we grow in our limited space.  It’s surprising what you can grow in such a small area.   I’ve been thinking though… wouldn’t it be great to have some fresh salad leaves for our sandwiches, or strawberries that I can just pop into the garden and pick? I’ve also had the idea to grow some veg in pots in our little front garden.

When this fab book came though the post, it was just what I needed.  Tons of inspiration for growing in containers – how cool is it that you can create a meal from one pot?!  It’s great to try something new with the fruit and veg you grow.  The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener by Cinead McTernan published by Frances Lincon Publishers, is packed full of creative and inspiring ways to literally pot up and create a tasty morsel for you to eat or drink.  Perfect! Just what I need to get planning my containers at home.

Within each section, the recipes list the ingredients you’ll need, when to harvest and if it has any bee friendly plants you’ll be using – buzz buzz.   Also there’s a step by step guide of how to make up your gourmet pot, tips and advice on what you can do with your pot after you’ve harvested, plus a tasty recipe for you to make with your produce.I’m sure you’ll love reading The One-Pot Gourmet Gardener by Cinead McTernan as much as I did and enjoy the inspiring recipes.  What a great book for people who want to start to grow their own.  As it says in the book, you don’t need an allotment to be able to enjoy fresh herbs and veggies.  I’m sure this will inspire a lot of people as much as I’ve been inspired 🙂

  1. I like the concept of planting a whole meal together… What a novel approach! Another great resource is the ‘Vertical Veg’ website. You’ll be amazed what people have achieved in tiny spaces, and the tips section is brilliant. 😊
