A years worth of delicious recipes


The cook Lisa Fearn will be launching her first recipe book Blas / Taste at Aberglasney Gardens on Wednesday, 23 November.


Blas / Taste contains over 90 delicious family-friendly recipes and is presented bilingually. The book also includes suggestions for activities to keep the children busy, creating home-made gifts, quick ideas and making the most of ingredients from the garden.


Lisa Fearn is a Carmarthen girl and a mother of five. She established a gardening and cookery school called ThePumpkin Patch in Allt y Gog Farm in Felin-wen, Carmarthenshire. By now, she has taught thousands of children to grow and cook their own food (she's taught a few parents too).

Lisa is a columnist with the Carmarthen Journal and a regular on Radio Wales and Radio Cymru. She is also a cook on the Prynhawn Da programme on S4C. Above all, Lisa has a great interest in the social power of food.

Lisa says “I love the outdoors, gardening and cooking. So, when our youngest reached school age, I took stock of what I knew and The Pumpkin Patch became a reality a childrens cookery and gardening school teaching them how to grow and cook their own food. Within months the school was fully booked, and I started sharing our family-friendly recipes with people.

Blas / Taste is full of our favourite go torecipes at Allt y Gog Farm. They are the recipes that I hope my children will use when they leave home Mums favourites. No fuss; easy meals and snacks that flavour the seasons and the years celebrations with the family. So invite everybody round to taste!

Blas / Taste is a perfect gift this Christmas and is now available from your local bookshop or directly from Gomer Press on / 01559 363092.
