Mark wrote three of the River Cottage Handbooks – Veg Patch, Fruit, and Chicken and Eggs – and was a contributing author to the River Cottage A-Z: Our Favourite Ingredients, & How to Cook Them, and The Garden Chef.
‘This is my book of the year. Very occasionally you find a book where each facet – the writing, the photographs, the design, the recipes – have come together in a way that makes complete sense, where you can feel the author’s presence and personality in every aspect of it. That is the case here. The writing is personal, intelligent, funny, and draws you in; the photographs – taken by Mark himself – have a delicate other-worldly quality, while the recipes have an identity all of their own‘.
