Using seasonal produce is just so logical and important. Stephanie Alexander is a big advocate of seasonal produce and her latest book "Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Companion" is basically a garden to table guide of 73 different vegies, fruit and herbs. The motto for the book is dig, plant, water, grow, harvest, chop and cook. So simple yet such a really great way to live. By the looks of the promotional blurbs, the book also addresses space issues for those city dwellers like me!
I believe the book is being released on the 28th of September. I cannot wait to get my hands on a copy and her Cooks Companion book is such a staple in Australian households, I am sure Kitchen Garden will be well worth the $125
Let me know what you think of Stephanie's new book when you grab a copy. Do you already use/love/ live by the cook's companion??
