Thanks once again to:

My partner Michael McGrath for allowing me the space at home, and for his ongoing support to get this cooked and written, as well as his tasty comments. Likewise Jeremy Leeming, our partner at The Providores restaurant, for his feedback.

Gareth Balance, my vegetable man, has been fantastic in sourcing vegetables, and the kitchen team at The Providores, led by Miles Kirby and Cris Hossack have been wonderful. As have our partners Annie and Derek Smail, Savas Ertunc and Tarik Bayazit, and my agent Felicity Rubinstein.

The creative team who first came together working on Salads: photographer Jean Cazals and I had fun on this, our fifth book together; Lewis Esson edited and cropped a book commissioned by Quadrille’s Jane O’Shea; Sue Rowlands provided croissants and lovely props; and the clever Lawrence Morton designed it lovingly.
