Description

Welcome to Summer on Fat Pig Farm, where the garden prospers, the berries ripen and the aroma of fresh herbs lingers in the air.

Summer is the season of surplus, a time when the sun is high and the cooking is easy. Dig in to indulgent waffles with salty butterscotch pears. Enjoy a rustic farm meal of cider chicken or zucchini and buffalo mozzarella lasagne, while sipping white peach and mint sangria. Finish with vanilla-poached nectarines or raspberry cake drizzled with elderflower syrup.

Gourmet farmer Matthew Evans showcases beautiful seasonal produce with this collection of fresh and simple recipes to help you bring summer into your kitchen.
