When I first came across the Sarah Raven blog, Garlic and Sapphire, I was (geekily!) pleased to note that its name is taken from a favourite poem of mine: T.S. Eliot’s Four Quartets (“garlic and sapphires in the mud”). The blog, centring on “beautiful and productive gardens and kitchens in action” is written by a team of authors and I am happy to say that I am the newest addition! I will largely be writing about my kitchen, usually in terms of its relationship to the countryside and the seasons. My first post -all about foraging for blackberries and sloes- has been published today.
To celebrate, the kind folk at Sarah Raven have provided me with a copy of Sarah Raven’s Garden Cookbook to give away. I have had this book in my own kitchen for quite some time and I can highly recommend it. The recipes are arranged by month and focus on seasonal cooking so it’s to this book that I turn on the days when I have some choice fresh produce from the veg box or farmers market. The Kentish Apple Cake recipe in particular is a perennial Autumn favourite in our house.
If you would like to be in with a chance of winning the cookbook, just fill in the form below. The giveaway is open until 24th September 2013. Good luck!
Oh, and please do head over to Garlic and Sapphire and have a read of my post.
