"One of my dreams is of having a kitchen garden, so that I can cook and eat vegetables as they should taste, and this maybe explains why I am particularly drawn to Sarah Raven's Garden Cookbook. It provides enough romantic escapism – since I don't have the luxury of any outdoor space – and yet is of practical purpose, too, in the form of vibrant, inspiring recipes that, with the help of a good greengrocer, I can cook in my urban kitchen, too. This really is a rich compendium of a book" – Nigella Lawson

Garden Cookbook recipes for late summer


greek garden pie

The Greeks make this at the weekend and then eat it cold for breakfast or lunch for the rest of the week. It’s good with a tomato and onion salad


blueberry buckwheat pancakes

Serve for breakfast scattered with blueberries, blackcurrants (now being heralded as even richer in antioxidants than blueberries) or raspberries


summer garden tempura

If you boil purple French beans, they turn a dark grey-green. By dipping them raw and whole into tempura batter and then shallow-frying them, they stay looking fantastic and taste even better



When I worked as a waitress at the River Café, this was one of the first recipes I learnt. Using bread in a salad may seem odd, and you might think it would be heavy, but this is one of the best summer tomato salads
