How to grow your own ingredients

On the chef’s gardener site you will find easy ways to grow herbs & vegetables at home that will help you cook the best possible tasting meals & dishes.

There are many ways to grow your ingredients. If you have lots of space then the ‘tried & tested’ way of growing them in soil will work. But the advantage of hydroponics & aquaponics is that it’s often easier, with faster results & better yields.

In addition on this site you will also find out details of how to grow vegetables that are not easily found in many supermarkets – for example if you wanted to cook Gachas Manchegas, Kapucijners or Crosne.
