***A Great Read's Book of the Month for June 2020***

You can read our interview with Olia Hercules HERE

'A complete revelation' Nigella Lawson

Olia Hercules owes some of her earliest and fondest memories to the 'summer kitchens' of her parents, grandparents, neighbours and friends in Ukraine.

These small buildings are separate from the main house, and always positioned near a fruit plot or veg patch so families can enjoy the home-grown produce as it ripens, and preserve the surplus in preparation for winter. The number of summer kitchens is dwindling these days, but there is still so much we can learn about making the most of the vibrant summer produce throughout the rest of the year.

Summer Kitchens contains recipes such as Borsch with duck and smoked pears, Burnt aubergine butter and tomato toast, Pot roast chicken with herb creme fraiche, Nettle, sorrel and wild garlic soup and Poppyseed babka.

With beautiful photography and writing on the people and lush landscapes of Ukraine, this book will transport you to idyllic summer kitchens past and present.

AUTHOR: Olia Hercules was born in Ukraine and forged a career as a chef in the UK. She is the author of the award-winning cookbooks Mamushka and Kaukasis. Her new book, Summer Kitchens, is a return to the people, landscape and recipes that continue to beckon her home.

    Currently my favourite cookery book. Every picture is inspiring and the mix of fermentation and other recipes is wonderful. I want a summer kitchen in my allotment!
