The Kitchen Garden
The Kitchen GardenSanna Töringe
With all their smells, colours and flavours, kitchen gardens are truly gardens to enjoy. Nothing tastes as good as something you have grown and picked yourself and there is something very special about digging up the first new potatoes, picking strawberries for breakfast, washing the earth off carrots under the pump and snipping a bunch of chives over pickled herring.
This book is full of great advice on everything from planning, laying out, sowing, harvesting and looking after your own kitchen garden. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small, or grown in pots, boxes or a small city balcony, you can still enjoy what you reap with the help of the many delicious recipes and wonderful pieces of advice accumulated during twenty-five years of gardening. The Kitchen Garden is an endless source of inspiration thanks to its beautiful pictures, sensuous observations and relaxed cultivation advice. Sanna Töringe is the author of a number of personal and highly popular books about food and gardens. This is a revised edition of The Kitchen Garden (2009) with an extended chapter on urban cultivation. The inspirational pictures are the work of photographer Lina Karna Kippel.
