A lovely little book charting kitchen gardens at the large stately homes. It includes a helpful list of gardens to visit (Holkham and Shugborough being two I have visited and was impressed with both). I also like that it made an effort to describe the life of the workers in these gardens.

A fairly typical Shire book, distinguished by some rather excellent illustrations and a comprehensive list of examples that can be visited throughout the UK.
