Gardening by Cuisine: An Organic-Food Lover’s Guide to Sustainable Living

Even urban dwellers, with little more than a balcony or tiny backyard or windowsill, can grow their own food, thanks to Patti Moreno’s groundbreaking gardening guide! Moreno, host of the most popular garden videos on the web, has devised a unique plan for creating low-maintenance organic “cuisine gardens”–including Italian Best-Ever Marinara Sauce Garden, Asian Stir Fry Garden, and Mediterranean Vegetable Garden–that produce the vegetables, fruits, and herbs people love and eat. She supplies dozens of easy plans, plus a generous collection of simple, delicious recipes and menus that will make the most  of any garden’s bounty. Moreno’s colorful photographs, illustrations, and comprehensive instructions will encourage gardeners both new and experienced to embrace sustainable living with ease and enthusiasm.

  1. I’ve purchased about six gardening books in the past year. All contain vegetable gardening instructions and recipes. This book is well written, although it seems too general. Didn’t learn much from it, perhaps due to studying the other six.

  2. This unusual treatment of gardening and cooking is a fun variation of more typical cook or gardening books. Each branch of my family received this book and all have enjoyed it.

  3. Lots of great ideas and very clear instructions. She gives ideas for very specific gardens, and then recipes using what you grew in that garden. We will be mixing it up a bit to grow what we know we will use.

  4. Bought this as a gift for my DIL as she and my son have bought a house in Boston and plan to start a garden. Thought is was cool that the author lives in Boston. My DD (who lives with my son) liked the fact that it also tells you how to use your harvest in cooking, as she loves to cook. Sounds like a winner to me! 🙂

  5. I borrow my nieces book and enjoyed reading it so much that I decided I had to have my own copy. I have supplies to build my first raised flower bed. Now that the holidays are over I’ll have a little more free time for fun projects instead of the have to’s.
