Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Green, a columnist for the Philadelphia Inquirer, has an impressive and wide-ranging cooking background, and she's lived and traveled around the globe as well, so her imaginative, mouthwatering recipes have an intriguing international sheen. She starts with the basics, describing more than 100 types of beans, peas, and other legumes, then moves on to more than 200 recipes. Numerous boxes and chef's notes provide a huge amount of information on the legume family and on food and techniques as well. Although there are recipes for hearty comfort food like Diner-Style Baked Beans with Bacon, Green regards beans as "a culinary delight," and many of her dishes, such as French Lentil and Foie Gras-Stuffed Ravioli with Truffle Oil, elevate legumes to a gourmet treat. Both a reference and a cookbook, this is highly recommended. Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
