Here’s an extract about the courgette:
If herbs on your kitchen windowsill are the baby steps into growing your own veg, then courgettes are the stabilizers on your first bike… Close cousins with the cucumber, like pumpkins and melons, the courgettes we see on our plates today were most likely developed in Italy and have only really been eaten with any gusto elsewhere, particularly in the UK or USA, in the last century.”
All you could ever want to know about the courgette, fitted snugly inside a picture of a courgette. See, we told you, this is the book for anyone who loves illustration and and loves food. And we have two copies to give away! Click the button below to be in with a chance of winning one of them.
