Editorial Reviews

Korby Cummer
In an extensive introductory chapter that she calls ''a legume primer,'' the author, a professional cook and self-taught culinary scholar, explains the differences between Old World and New World beans and sorts out the bewildering if beautiful variety of heirloom beans -- how they taste, how to cook them, how to buy them. And she gives plenty of practical and scientific information on carminatives (such a nicer word than ''anti-flatulents''). She also provides good-looking recipes for bean soups and casseroles, and even bean sweets from all over the world.
