When I visited Kew Gardens outside London in September 2014, I came to a part of the garden closed for public. A sign proclaimed:
Apologies for our appearence: You´ve just stumbled upon a film set. We are currently shooting a BBC2 documentary here called "Kew on a Plate", with Raymond Blanc and Kate Humble, which will air in 2015.
In between all the flowers I found this so exciting, I had to take a couple of photos.......
.......and then I forgot all about it.
A year later I was back in Kew Gardens. Then I remembered that I, the previous year, had seen a new fruit- and vegetable garden. I went over there; Kew on a Plate - hm, wasn´t that the name of the filming.......
I wandered around, fascinated.
Charmed and inspired.
So when I discovered they had a book with the same name in the shop near the entrance, I bought it.
I flipped through it when I came home, but somehow I didn´t find it very interesting, and gave it some space in the bookshelves.
There it has been standing safe until now. Now it is on mt desk, I read from it, I look at pictures, I dream of food I am going to make, I go out in the garden to look at the beetroots, the gooseberries, the apples, the potatoes........and can´t understand why I didn´t discover this gem of a book earlier.
You see, now I have wanted the Norwegian broadcasting two Tuesdays in a row. I have watched Kew on a Plate, with Raymond Blanc and Kate Humble :-)
And my mouth is wantering.
