The Cook's Salad Garden Revisited Summary

The Cook's Salad Garden Revisited: A New Zealand Guide to Growing and Preparing Salads by Mary Browne

Salads, once served as an occasional side dish, are now a daily item on the menu of many households and are frequently complex and substantial enough to constitute a main meal. To provide fresh and varied salad ingredients, as well as to save money, many cooks are turning to their own back yards and creating a special salad garden. The Cook's Salad Garden Revisited shows how to achieve a delicious and varied, year-round supply of salad vegetables. From the familiar, such as lettuce and cabbage, to the unusual, such as orach and mizuna, sound and detailed information is given on the propagation, cultivation, harvesting and preparation of a marvellous array of salad vegetables. Numerous tempting recipes will inspire cooks to experiment with interesting combinations of ingredients to create mouth-watering salads.

Mary Browne, gardener, author and food writer, has been growing herbs for 50 years. She grew and photographed all the herbs in this book and devised and tested the recipes. For many years she wrote a monthly column for NZ House & Garden entitled 'Earthly Pleasures', based on her extensive kitchen garden at Palmerston, Otago. Mary collaborated with Helen on The Pavlova Story. Helen Leach has written for academic and popular audiences on New Zealand's garden history and culinary traditions. For this book she has extensively researched and written about the history of each herb. Helen is also the author of 1000 Years of Gardening in New Zealand, Cultivating Myths and The Pavlova Story. She is an Emeritus Professor of Anthropology at the University of Otago and a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand, and she lives in Dunedin. Nancy Tichborne is best known as a watercolour artist who produces calendars featuring flowers, gardens and cats, among other things.
