A Year In Fleurville by Felicita Sala
Why we love this piece
Perfect gift for the garden lovers. Bx
From Felicita Sala, the creator of bestselling Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street, comes this exquisite sequel. In each garden, someone is tending to their produce. Maria's picking asparagus, Ramon's mum is watering the cucumbers, and a gaggle of kids are eating cherries fresh from the tree and even wearing some as earrings! Meet the many people of Fleurville, delight in their produce, learn their recipes, and find comfort in the cycle of the seasons. A Year in Fleurville is a cookbook, a mini guide to gardening, and a picture book rolled into one, celebrating the joys of coming together and sharing the rich rewards of our gardens and kitchens.
