The Great Dixter Cookbook: Recipes from an English Garden

By Aaron Bertelsen

Seasonal recipes and expert planting guides from Great Dixter, Christopher Lloyd's quintessential English country garden

The Great Dixter Cookbook features seventy simple and delicious seasonal recipes from the kitchen garden at Great Dixter, the historic house and garden located on the borders of Kent and Sussex. Dishes included range from English classics such as chicken and leek pie, apple crumble, and beetroot chutney, to contemporary recipes like crispy kale with sea salt and shakshuka. Dixter was home to the revered and highly influential gardener and writer, Christopher Lloyd, and a number of this book's recipes have been taken from the Lloyd family's personal kitchen notebooks. With growing guides to more than twenty varieties of vegetables and fruit to accompany the recipes, this practical, accessible book enriches the kitchens and lives of home cooks and gardeners worldwide.



    REVIEW QUOTES

"Taking us beyond the ornamental garden and into the kitchen."--Town & Country

"A brilliant resource for keen gardeners..."--Grow Your Own

"Aaron Bertelsen, vegetabel gardener at Great Dixter in Sussex, shares some of the recipes from his new book inspired by the crop he grows. They are delicious looking, wholesome and not too tricky as he's a home cook, not a trained chef. I have a mental block about baking - I can't remember when I last baked a cake. But he's inspired me to give beetroot and chocolate cake a go."--Hatta Byng, Editor, House & Garden

"Finally, here's the one we're waiting for... A chance to visit in print Christopher Lloyd's legendary kitchen garden that surrounds the historic house and garden located on the borders of Kent and Sussex. But more even than that, along with the seventy seasonal recipes, this book is a valuable growing guide for more than twenty varieties of fruit and vegetables."--http: //elledecoration.co.uk

"The intrinsic link between garden and kitchen at Great Dixter is evident in this new volume, which is a both a cookbook and a growing manual. It is hard to say which part of this book is most useful, the growing advice [...] or the recipes, for both are laced with advice that is easy to put into practice."--English Garden
