Home is Where the Good Food Is
Specializing in the good life, Dick and James Strawbridge run a prolific 3 acres of land in Cornwall, England, on which they grow their own produce. In Made at Home: Vegetables, they document their rise to the self-sufficient good life. From horseradish and carrots to unsung stars, like Jerusalem Artichokes, the book’s offerings are seasonally organized and incorporated into at least one brilliant dish. The Butternut Squash Gnocchi is a sensational take on the potato-based pasta. And the wild rocket in the Scallops with Rocket Pesto is a worthy substitution. Calling eggplant aubergine and zucchini courgettes, Dick and James bring heavy English accents to their writing and recipes. Plant your own plot with Dick and James Strawbridge’s Made at Home: Vegetables, available for purchase for $20. It’s a must for gardeners.
