Overview

No simple cookbook could give you all this! The temptation begins with luscious photos as beautiful as classic still lifes—pictures of vegetables common and rare; markets with bushels of produce; and tasty-looking dishes on the platter. Whether you're a vegetarian looking to expand the menu or a meat-eater in search of a healthier diet, this original look at a fascinating subject will whet your appetite and feed your mind. Take advantage of what's fresh in your area seasonally, and get the best out of a range of vegetables from broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini to rocambole, salsify, and chanterelle.

Each root, leaf, stem, and tuber is lovingly examined, its history amusingly related, and its varieties investigated. Detailed entries arranged by horticultural family present over 100 vegetables with more than 300 recipes from comfortingly familiar favorites to intriguingly new combinations. 8 1/2 X 11.
