Lacking inspiration, like to buy seasonally from local farm shop and also expanded our veg patch so hoping to grow quite a bit of our own this year. any recommendations?

HFW's Veg Everyday. Not seasonal exactly, but loads of ideas in there. We use it weekly

Thanks HeyMicky I will have a look at that.

I was given 'The Cookery Year' (published by the Reader's digest Association) by a uni friend for my 21st birthday years ago and it's still a book I turn to for so many things. It is divided into months of the year with suggestions for menus for each month and things in season. I've no idea if it's still available ..
And for a seasonal recipe for anybody who likes French - it's a video which teaches the recipe in French and English - it's a bit late, but here is a Three Kings' Day cake:

The Cookery Year is my oldest cookbook - must have had it for about 35 years & I still use it.

I'm pretty sure it is still available & I've often seen it in charity shops.

I love Nigel Slaters kitchen diary and tender. seasonal, delicious food, well written beautiful books.
I also had tom kitchens one which was very nice but I didn't actually make many of the recipes as they are fiddly.

oh and I also have new covent gardens soup recipe book, sounds odd I know, but.they divide the recipes into seasons and have some beautiful soups. I don't know if its still in print, but its worth buying if you like soupsmile

I have been thinking about getting the Kitchen Diaries.

The Covent Garden book is still in print - I bought it last week to go with my fab new Cuisinart soup maker. Have been trying all sorts of weird and wonderful things smile

I'm not sure I'm that much into soup......but I guess it could convert me! smile

I love The Kitchen Diaries. It's got so much content I read it in bed like a proper book! Recipes are fab, seasonal and straightforward.

Do I get volume 1 or 2?

AmelieRose Sat 19-Jan-13 17:20:46

Get vol 1 first (then you'll probably want to get vol 2!)

I prefer vol 1, but both are lovely. His style of writing is very inviting, and the recipes are simple and delicious ( theres a pumpkin laksa that I wait all year to have in October)

I'm not a soup fan either, but my family love the stuff, and using the Covent garden book has introduced me to an array of very tasty soups.
