one of bob flowerdew's books.
big, coffeetable, and allthatjazz.
nice pics.

its supposed to be a guide how to make to the most about your garden produce but I think it misses the point.
to me, it was a bit of an disappointment (and I am willing to trade for something else) because I find it trying to cover too much and not a lot in depth.
it does give recipes but not enough.
find it gives not enough DIFFERENT ideas for how to make the MOST of your harvest this way...I'd like to have seen more options on particular veg or fruit types but in general you get maybe two.

I have borrowed a copy from the local library; rather than buy one. I find Bob Flowerdew's books are probably 1 part information to 9 parts inspiration.His best book, I think, is his first book about organic gardening, but that does not stop me having many of his books, just for the inspiration !
