About this book

Following the successes of Cafe Paradiso and the award-winning Paradiso Seasons, Denis Cotter is back with an evocative, witty collection of tales and a superb range of exciting and delicious vegetarian recipes. Wild Garlic, Gooseberries and Me cajoles, informs and questions our relationship to the land and the vegetables we eat.

Denis shares his passion for his favourite foods. He drags us into muddy fields and introduces us to the growers of the best produce imaginable. The excitement of a robust blackberry jam becomes a passionate argument for us to go out into the countryside, the dazzling sight of high-trailing borlotti beans ignites a discussion on the future of artisan growing. Whether creating a restaurant masterpiece or foraging in hedgerows and woods, Denis searches for a new connection between food, people and land. He also teaches you how to search for mushrooms, wild greens and sloes, how to cook asparagus and take on an artichoke with attitude. Divided into four themed chapters, 'It's a Green Thing', 'Wild Pickings', 'Nature and Nurture' and 'Growing in the Dark', each including information and anecdotes about the vegetables that feature as well as many delicious recipes. There are simple salads and soups as well as more challenging main meals and mouth-watering desserts. Recipes include: Fresh Tagliolini with Abyssinian Cabbage, Pine Nuts & Sheep's Dressing Courgette Flower, Pea and Chive Risotto Samphire Tempura with Coriander Dressing Sea Spinach, Potato and Hazelnut Pancakes Braised Celeriac Gratin of Chestnuts and Blue Cheese with Red Wine Sauce Stunning images of the landscape, the food and the finished recipes complete this delightful read and unique recipe book.
