"I was born at home in time for lunch - the doctor lured me out with a cold roast chicken sandwich. Dad had just popped downstairs to make up a few rounds - one for the doctor, another for the midwife and one for himself. Mum was busy..." So says Tim Halket in the Introduction to his engaging and original book, Five Fat Hens.
A love of eating and good ingredients led Tim to build a hen house in the cormer of his garden for a daily harvest of fresh eggs. His take on the role of keeping chickens is amusing and insightful but this book is more than just a DIY guide to keeping a few free range birds, or a new slant on a chicken themed cookbook. This book takes the reader through an entire year, skilfully combining the author's passion for cooking in diary form interwoven with his recipes, his throughts and observations and with the premise that even the smallest garden can be home to a supply of the freshest eggs imaginable.
