Making the best of fruit and veg

Twenty-seven years of experience in various parts of Nepal come together in Roydon Chesswas’ new book, Fruit and Vegetable Processing in Nepal. With practical chapters on juicing, drying, cooking and preserving locally-available foods and much more, this book will be of great assistance to people who want to eat healthy, home-grown foods all year round.

As Roydon pointed out at the launch, held on Monday 13 May in the UMN garden at Thapathali, a book like this is useful in all kinds of projects – Education, Health, Livelihoods, even Peacebuilding and Capacity Building. There’s definitely something for everyone!  It is practical, written in simple, clear Nepali, and illustrated to help people follow the processes Roydon describes accurately to get the best results.

Copies of the book are available for just NRP 200 (plus postage) from UMN’s Communications Team at

Roydon is rumoured to be working on a sequel – watch this space!
