24 May A taste of the unexpected by Mark Diacono
When I first received this book I had a quick look through and thought “if there was an illustration of the North south divide this book is the perfect representation of such a divide, I do not believe that half of the country are going to be able to grow a large proportion of the fruit and vegetables in this book”
Gladly I am wrong! A further look at the book shows it to be a wonderfully written book that clearly shows Marks passion for his subject and left me with the decision of what I am going to try and grow on my allotment next year. If a book can do this then it is defenitly worth adding to your collection.
The pages are glossy and well illustrated and very informative with both growing details and great recipes to use with the result of your efforts. If I can grow a fraction of what is offered in this book I will be very happy. Mark has succesfully written a book that is very different to most other books on the market in the fact that it is not vanilla and samey – advising you how to grow the same old things year after year.
This in my eyes is a great acheivment and I know I will get great satisfaction from this book over the coming years – now how many books is that true of?
