If you've ever dreamed of abandoning your life in the city and fleeing to some quiet corner of the coast - Deborah Hide-Bayne can tell you exactly how to do it. She 'escaped' to the Coromandel from her hectic London lifestyle back in 2003. She documented the change she experienced in her first book, Coromandel Flavour. Her new book, Coastal, details her family's adventure in building their new house and intersperses it with seasonal recipes and practical guides of how to do things like build a compost bin, make a raised vegetable bed, smoke a fish and keep your own hens. She joins Kathryn and shares a recipe for how to cook scallops in their shells.
