hi 

we have just built a covered outdoor cooking area which has left a shady patch of garden just the side of it could anyone recommend any plant that would be best suited there . 

thanks

Some herbs and veg will grow in the shade, depending how much shade. That would be ideal next to a cooking area.

Perfect for a Fatsia japonica  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3295666/How-to-grow-Fatsia-japonica.html an exotic and tropical looking shrub (just right to set the scene for outdoor eating) which is perfectly happy growing in almost total shade.
