I'm filling a small handmade sketchbook with botanical sketches and the odd recipe. Here's the latest, a chestnut puree dessert, made with chestnuts we harvested ourselves!


  1. lovely drawings and pages.I especially like the chestnuts in their spiky shell. The book is a wonderful idea. Are you shoosing recipes to suit the btanical or the other way round. A great project !

  2. Yes, it is about time to be roasting these babies over an open fire with Jack Frost nipping at ones nose. Beautiful sketch.

  3. Hi Alissa, I had the idea of a botanical sketchbook when I realized the first sketch in it, which are the peaches I posted about here earlier on in the year. So I add as I go along and if I have a recipe I put that in too
