For beginners and green-thumbed foodies, this unusually all-inclusive garden-to-kitchen cookbook is part lesson in gardening and part collection of healthy, delicious, kid-friendly recipes.

With vibrant photo-illustrations and clearly organized sections, discover how to plant seeds in patio containers, window boxes, or on an allotment; harvest fruits and vegetables; determine which plant parts are edible; spot pests in the garden; and use home-grown crops to cook everything from bean and bacon spaghetti to polenta chips to tomato, feta, and basil pizza.

"This effort offers budding young gardeners (and their adults) a comprehensive, hands-on guide to gardening and cooking" — Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW

serves 4
2 large sweet potatoes
x slices bacon
1 large leek, white part only, sliced

8 large carrots, peeled and chopped

2 tablespoons butter
Drizzle of olive oil
1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
2. Bake the sweet potatoes for 45 minutes to an hour, until a fork goes in easily.
3. While the sweet potatoes are baking, cook the bacon in a frying pan until browned. Drain.
4. In a separate frying pan, cook the leek, sprinkled with salt and pepper, for 5 to10 minutes on medium heat, stirring often, until softened. Chop the bacon and stir it in.
