Paella party

Freshly Picked was launched last Thursday with a party in the 
vegetable garden of the Hackney City Farm. Jason Lowe, the book's photographer cooked a giant paella of snails and chorizo and we drank rosé amongst the roses and rows of leeks.

If you're still after a signed copy I will be talking about vegetable gardening at the Wealden Times Midsummer Fair in Kent at 3.15pm this Saturday June 13th and again at Broadway Books on Thursday June 18th at 7pm.
