There is no denying it: the days are short and unless you planned for a winter garden, fresh vegetables from your backyard have long passed. But don’t let the winter get you down. There are plenty of recipes to last you through the cold season and into the ‘hungry gap’.

Throw another log on the fire, grab a blanket, and tuck in with these new and classic favorites.
Happy reading from your friends at Chelsea Green Publishing.
