06    > LEEK & POTATO SOUP WITH CHIVES


Good for making in advance... Lee Streeton's mother would make this soup when things were a little tough, Lee says "As its a wholesome food, served with bread, she would always make plenty of it – it would always seem better on the 3rd day after the flavours had had a chance to develop."


05    > LEE'S WALDORF SALAD

A classic yet simple salad from London Syon Park.


04    > LAVENDER ICE CREAM

A very modern dish: Try this delicious, and fragrant, ice cream


03    > LOVAGE SOUP STOCK BASE


Lovage is a more flavorful alternative to celery. Celery was developed from lovage to be used as a vegetable. Celery has large stalks and tiny leaves, while lovage has smaller stalks and larger leaves. Lovage tastes just like celery, but is about ten times stronger. It is a biennial and blooms in the late summer to early fall.

Lovage is very easy to grow.


02    > CREAM ZUCCHINI AND LOVAGE SOUP

A healthy, creamy soup.

Also try Lovage and Comfrey Soup or Pea and Lovage Soup as alternatives.
Check out > The Austerity Kitchen which is full of ideas and information on how to eat well and spend less. An edible garden is the ideal way to have free, fresh, organic ingredients at your finger tips.


01    > NASTURTIUM SALAD

Nasturtiums also look perfect bunched on the top of an elegant cake iced in white or chocolate and they add a feeling of festivity (as flowers often do) to a mixed green salad of arugula, sorrel, mesclun and spinach. Both the leaves and the flowers are edible and they have much more Vitamin C than plain lettuce as well as a slight peppery flavour.
