 Antonio Carluccio's VegetablesONE of the real pleasures of gardening is rushing from the garden to the kitchen with an armful of freshly picked produce, ready to be transformed into a tasty dish. At this time of the year, the vegetable garden is a constant source of joy, but it's always good to find a few new ideas to use all those harvested salad greens, tomatoes and herbs.

Antonio Carluccio is an Italian cook who just adores home-grown vegetables. He writes lovingly about everything from leeks and lentils to turnips and truffles, and his recipes are interspersed with nostalgic recollections and useful pointers to help you make the most of your crops.

It's mouth-watering stuff - just in time for summer entertaining.
