Ollie the Head Kitchen Gardener is full of passion for his subject - we will hear more of this young man and the whole subject of real restaurant kitchen gardening. Out of town cafes and restaurants serious about their food should be taking note of what is going on here.
Innovation and experimentation is much in evidence. The Crosne Chinese Artichoke was new to us with its excellent crunchy water chestnut taste.
