    Wow! I love this Seasonal Summer guide, the pages are absolutely beautiful and full of information about what I can do to create a more sustainable Christmas, something that I value and with the summer guide I now know where to start! The recipes look amazing too. Thank you Sarah for putting together such a great book.

    Wowzas, what a stunner! Sarah has put together a beautiful seasonal guide for summer, covering, well, everything! While you’d expect tips on which foods are in season, she also shares which stars will be lighting your way at night, which animals will be around, how to make your Christmas (or any other summer celebration) sustainable and some beautiful summer recipes with all those things that are in season (I’ve already tucked into the buckwheat pancakes!). Sarah’s playful sense of humour comes through in her written word, making her Summer Guide an entertaining read as well as an informative one. I can’t wait to use all of her tips and ideas. This is definitely a must-have for my summer!
