Book to Cook By, Book to Grow By

This week of food has inspired the discovery of this wonderful cookbook, Jamie at Home. I haven't been able to lay it down. Why? It's not only about cooking food but about growing food. A great combination.
Page colors are whimsical, pink behind potatoes? Orange behind squash. Well, what else!
Linking gardening to cooking food, it's what happens when you start growing your own food. Both become somewhat of an obsession and Jamie Oliver's book is the perfect object of obsession. It doesn't matter that some of his gardening tips would never work in our Rocky Mountain climate, it just matters that he talks about his ups and downs of growing veg, as he calls it. Crack open this book for a great read.
