A Year in Fleurville: recipes from balconies, rooftops, and gardens

Felicita Sala

From Felicita Sala, the creator of bestselling Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street, comes this exquisite sequel.

In each garden, someone is tending to their produce. Maria’s picking asparagus, Ramon’s mum is watering the cucumbers, and a gaggle of kids are eating cherries fresh from the tree and even wearing some as earrings!

Meet the many people of Fleurville, delight in their produce, learn their recipes, and find comfort in the cycle of the seasons.

A Year in Fleurville is a cookbook, a mini guide to gardening, and a picture book rolled into one, celebrating the joys of coming together and sharing the rich rewards of our gardens and kitchens.


The previous children’s cookbook by author and illustrator Felicita Sala, Lunch at 10 Pomegranate Street, is extremely popular in my household, inspiring many of our favourite recipes, so I was excited to devour Sala’s follow-up, A Year in Fleurville.

This time the focus is on gardening and seasonality of produce. We begin in spring, with recipes for peas, asparagus and basil, move through to summer with cherries and cucumbers, and travel on through the rest of the year until we arrive back at spring again. As with Sala’s previous book, the recipes are detailed in a very simple – but stunning – visual style. My family has already made the Blood Orange and Olive Oil cake (utterly delicious) and the Cod Croquettes (very more-ish). At the back of the book is a brief description of gardening activities and tools, as well as a handy visual seasonal guide of fruit and vegetables.

This is a superb cookbook for kids (and adults) that will have everyone happily eating and cooking, while learning more about seasonal produce, and perhaps even getting in the garden to grow some food. Utterly delectable for budding and seasoned chefs ages 8+.
