Renowned cook, Sally Wise has always wanted her own cooking school, and her own farm, where she could grow the things she wants to cook with. One day she and her husband came across a property in Tasmania's Derwent Valley with an orchard full of fruit trees, and a funny old chalet/cabin out the back. A plan began to take shape. In this, her latest book, Sally shares 250 recipes she's gathered over a year of growing, cooking, setting up school and house and managing an eccentric household of family and other animals. Like Nigel Slater's Kitchen diaries, and Sally's early best-seller, A year in a bottle, this is a charming portrait of tree-change and a cookbook to treasure.
