1 – Rhubarb is a vegetable & belongs to the Buckwheat family.
2 – The word Rhubarb can also mean “a heated argument or dispute.”
3 – Rhubarb leaves are also poisonous…( I learnt this from an episode of bad girls 🙂
Having grown the Rhubarb at the studio from a small stem, the idea of the images & the recipes came to light…..The series have been captured throughout the stages of compiling the recipes.
Cheers & enjoy…
