It may not be a holiday weekend here in Canada, but we’re more than happy to join in the celebrations of any food-inspired holiday — and of course, we have a recipe for making the perfect burger at home.

Keep it simple by following the recipe exactly, or spice things up by adding onion, garlic, barbecue sauce, or cheese to the mix. No matter what, you’ll end up with a delicious burger worthy of celebration.

“Grow For Flavor immediately grabbed my attention by the unique way that it promised to ‘turn the tables on conventional gardening advice’ by dispelling common garden myths such as ‘home-grown always tastes better’ and ‘heirloom vegetables always taste better than hybrids’… the perfect book for a foodie-gardener.”

Our book of the month for April 2018 is Grow For Flavor: Tips and Tricks to Supercharge the Flavor of Homegrown Harvests by James Wong.

Wong is an ethnobotanist who trained at Kew Gardens in London, as well as a garden designer and TV and radio personality with the BBC. He is also a five-time Royal Horticultural Society Medal winner, so he knows about beautiful looking  — and tasting — plants. Grow For Flavor is the result of his research into improving the flavor and nutrition of homegrown produce. 

With beautiful images and delicious recipes for readers to feast their eyes on, the book is full of innovative yet simple organic methods for growing tastier home harvests.
