Meeting plants is like making new friends. It takes time and, with a bit of care and good fortune, enriches both of you. Eventually, you end up in the kitchen together...

In our busy, sometimes overwhelming world, nature is a solace. In this stunning companion, Paulette Whitney connects readers to the history and culture of more than 55 vegetables, fruits and herbs, sharing her own experiences, horticultural know-how, kitchen wisdom and favourite seasonal recipes. Paulette surveys 11 plant families, many well known, some less familiar - including their surprising connections, like how every single apple is, in fact, a cousin of the rose. Through evocative storytelling and sublime photography by Luke Burgess during a year in her market garden, this book is an invitation to slow down, grow something you can really taste, and appreciate nature's bounty.

'Australia's answer to Jane Grigson and Elizabeth David.'
Matthew Evans

'Paulette is a generous and natural storyteller. Here, at last, she shares her encyclopedic food plant knowledge with us all.'
