4 May 2010


hope you had a nice weekend. it was a 3 day one for us because of the may day bank holiday so we got some extra work done in our vegetable garden. we have been trying to get as much done as possible on the weekends and in the evenings because this is the time of year where we start to get really busy with summer shows, exhibitions and open studios and so gardening has to wait. we'll tell you what events we have coming up very soon and keep an eye on our events & news page too.

in the meantime, we thought we'd tell you about this lovely cookbook we bought the other day - Plenty by Yotam Ottolenghi. we haven't stopped looking at it all week and can't decide what we want to cook from it first. the cover got us instantly - beautiful simple graphics on white by two associates. Yotam has put together a collection of 120 vegetarian recipes for his book with beautiful photography by Jonathan Lovekin. we took a few pictures of our copy to show you.

a few of our favourite recipes include:
watercress, pistachio & orange blossom salad (image 2)
coconut rice with sambal & okra
bittersweet salad (image 4)
black pepper tofu
hot yoghurt & broad bean soup (image 6)
cucumber salad with smashed garlic & ginger

Yotam writes the new vegetarian column in the guardian newspaper which you can view online - there are some stunning recipes there, this one sounds especially nice.
