—plucked fresh from the garden—become the soul of cookery.
Using his own experience as a guide, Pellegrini tells you how to plan your own garden, when to plant what, how to determine your needs, how to nurture and harvest what you have grown, and how best to use the treasures you will reap. He not only gives you heart to break the soil and sow your own first seeds, but shows you how to raise almost anything, from the lowly and wonderful bean to the exotic artichoke and mysterious cardoon.
This is a book that could only have been written by a man with a love of the soil and an instinct for the good life. Angelo Pellegrini’s joy in gardening is so contagious that his exuberant book is bound to ensnare you—that is, if you are a serious cook. It is interlaced with memories of sensuous moments, snatches of mouth-watering recipes, and unabashed descriptions of the rewards of building a garden in limited space and tending it, season after season, for the pleasure of the table.

Bread and cheese, a huge salad of dandelion with oil and vinegar dressing, and a bottle of creamy ale,"" hums Mr. Pellegrini at one point in this leisurely gardening/gourmet book.
