The Clarks renew their passion for the food of Spain and the Muslim Mediterranean, but this time they find their inspiration a little closer to home--in an East End allotment. Documenting the authors' year in a Manor Garden allotment, this book captures the spirit of the community through the recipes and photographs that reflect everyday activities in this area, from Turkish women rolling flatbreads to families gathering to grill kebabs during the weekend. The 150 imaginative and seasonal recipes include Moro favorites along with new combinations such as pigeon salad with figs, chickpeas and pomegranate molasses, tortilla with onion tops, and courgette and yogurt soup. Showing how to experiment with plants that can be eaten at various different stages of their growth, this cookbook also includes recipes for parts of the crop that might otherwise be discarded (celery leaves, pea shoots, and poppy leaves) and makes use of produce that does not ripen, such as green tomatoes. Recipes for using produce at the end of the growing season, such as chili jam, tomato preserve, and pickled garlic, are also detailed.
