    Having grown herbs for over 30 years, Jekka knows the most common pitfalls to avoid. She offers plans for planting herb gardens, be it for aromatherapy or cooking, and guidance on propagation, harvesting, herbs in containers, pests and diseases as well as a yearly calendar.

    In The Consolation of FoodValentine Warner presents a collection of stories with recipes to read and make in troubled times. A book of 'comfort' food in the truest sense of the word, this book is unlike any other food memoir.

    This beautifully photographed book celebrates all that is Corsican – the people, the geography and, most importantly, the food. And with around 80 incredible Corsican recipes designed to be prepared in the home kitchen, you’ll be transported to the island in no time.

    Relatively unexplored by visitors from outside Europe (although it attracts an estimated 3 million from France annually), Corsica is a Mediterranean island steeped in a rich food culture. With incredible geography – from the mountains to the plains and the stunning coastline – Corsica has long been a well-loved idyll for those in the know. It is also home to a unique cuisine – blending the best of French and Italian food – that respects its home-grown produce: citrus fruits, grapes, chestnuts, cheese, herbs, fish, seafood and charcuterie.

    But Corsica is more than a collection of recipes, as the book also brings together portraits of those who live and work there, and those instrumental in maintaining Corsica’s rich food culture.
