It's Raining Plums Seasonal Recipes by Seasoned Cooks
By Xanthe Clay

This cookbook should appeal to all those who are tired of the chilly array of expensive imported produce in the supermarkets and bored by the cult of the celebrity chef. It draws on a rich seam of cookery talent in kitchens around the country. Fans of Xanthe Clay's popular "Readers' Recipes" columns in the "Daily Telegraph" show how to make the most of fresh produce from humble root vegetables to mouth-watering soft fruits. As well as delicious vegetable dishes, there are recipes for stews, soups, desserts, jams and preserves. Xanthe Clay adds her own useful tips on harvesting, choosing and cooking. This is a book that should be welcomed by vegetarians and anyone interested in good eating and good health. The recipes featured were contributed by readers and have been cooked, well tested and enjoyed. They use seasonal produce from the garden or the local greengrocer, and are unfussy, healthy and cheap.
