For over twenty years, Australian novelist David Foster and his wife Gerda have lived a largely self-sufficient life in the Southern Highlands of NSW, growing and making much of their own food. This book follows a year in their garden, discussing the cycles of planting and harvesting. It provides a recipe each week which best complements the seasonal food.Slow Food is a movement that began in Italy some decades ago, and has branches around the world, including Australia. It is dedicated to the growing, preparation and cooking of food using traditional methods. It adheres to the motto: "Live like a peasant, eat like a king."This book is illustrated with 32 colour photographs by Peter Solness, one of Australia's leading landscape photographers.
