This mouthwatering cookbook, written by the founder of organic box delivery company Abel & Cole, taps into trends towards local sourcing and seasonality.

As well as being full of recipes for salads and soups that could be adapted for café menus, the book is peppered with full-colour pics. Interspersed with the recipes are full-page focus pieces on vegetables and fruit, ordered according to the season of the year.

Baked treats include pumpkin and Parmesan bread, carrot cake, and traditional Cornish pasties. Abel suggests substitutes if one or another veg is not available. Fennel or celeriac can be used instead of celery, while sweet potatoes or pumpkin are alternatives for squash. As he says: "Substitute your heart out, it can be very rewarding!"
