Fiona Stager is in-conversation with Paul West for the launch of The Edible Garden Cookbook and Growing Guide.

The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide is a book about growing food wherever you may be and however much space you have. It is about cooking simply with fresh, seasonal produce and about celebrating life through sharing food with friends and family and the community around you. 

The book has lots of practical gardening advice, with information on how to set up a garden using a sunny windowsill, courtyard, backyard and even no yard! There are step-by-step guides to building a no-dig garden and the best way to compost depending on the space you have, as well as an A-Z guide for growing the most popular veg. Paul then shares more than 70 simple, produce-driven recipes that are bursting with freshness and flavour. And finally, Paul looks at how to develop relationships around food and shares some wonderful ideas for various events, from throwing a pickle party and hosting a harvest festival to building a mud-brick oven in your backyard and inviting your neighbours over for a wood-fired pizza night! 

The Edible Garden Cookbook & Growing Guide is for everyone who is interested in food and community. It will inspire and give you confidence to try your hand at growing your own produce and making more of your own food, and help you to find real meaning in everyday life.

Paul West is a trained chef, a passionate gardener, farmer and popular media personality. Paul hosted four seasons of River Cottage Australia (Foxtel and SBS), is the author of The River Cottage Australia Cookbook and has a regular slot on ABC radio and ABC television's Gardening Australia. After hosting River Cottage Australia in beautiful Central Tilba, Paul and his family swapped their 20-acre NSW South Coast property for a city life in Thornbury, in Melbourne's inner north turning a suburban backyard plot into a productive patch.
