    Hugh has been unconsciously sneaking more and more fruit into his recipes for a couple of years now - and he doesn't want to stop! He's come up with a book that revolutionises the way that it's used in cooking, with 200 recipes that are delicious, original and surreptitiously healthy. A 'piece of fruit' in a lunch box, on the breakfast table or at the end of a meal is all very well. But we are still a nation who thinks it's a bit racy to slice a banana onto our cornflakes in the morning. The fantastic resource of fruit - so delicious and so very very good for us - is ridiculously underexplored in our kitchens. This cookbook puts that right. Hugh's brilliant new recipes have carefully balanced flavour combinations for sturdy fare like marinated lamb and fig kebabs; goat tagine with apricots and almonds; chicken and fig couscous; venison stew with morello cherries; and pumpkin and pear curry. There are also fresh and zingy ideas like pineapple, melon and mint, as well as delicious cakes, tarts, pies, crumbles and puddings. With glorious photography from Simon Wheeler, Hugh's Fruit will bring a joyful fruitiness back to your kitchen and get you thinking about cooking in a whole new way.

    Growing fruit at home is a delicious and altogether more enjoyable alternative to buying it in the shops.

Each is accompanied by a photograph, with detailed advice on when and how to grow and harvest. In the second part of the book, Mark gives straightforward guidelines on techniques like pruning and training, as well as how to deal with problems or pests. There is a section dedicated to growing under covers and in containers. Introduced by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and with 30 delicious recipes, beautiful, full-colour photographs and a directory of useful addresses, this is the ideal reference for any aspiring fruit grower.
