There’s never been a cookbook like it. An incomparable variety of enticing recipes (more than eight hundred) . . . Basic gardening information . . . Shopping tips for nongardeners . . . Cooking inspirations for whatever you’ve plucked from the garden today or found fresh in the market . . . Vegetables as accompaniments . . . Vegetables as main courses (including recipes that use meat, fish, and poultry) . . . Vegetable soups, appetizers, salads, relishes . . . Even vegetable breads, pies, cakes, cookies . . . And more, as demonstrated over the years on The Victory Garden public television series.
A whole world of vegetable delight.

I have had a copy of this cookbook for almost 30 years. It has always been one of my favorites. I gave a copy of it to my sister years ago and it is one of her favorites, too. We recently purchased a "farm share" in a Community Supported Agriculture farm, and find ourselves innundated with vegetables--some of them types I have never bought in the store. Thanks to the VGC I have found wonderful ways to prepare all of the farm bounty!
As a gardener and cook, this is a staple in my cookbook collection. Great introductions to each vegetable. Also, because it is paperbound, I've slipped my other cut out recipes into the different chapters. So when I wonder what to do with an excess veg. or one I don't use much, just go to that chapter and there it is!
For cooks and gardeners or anyone who wants to learn more about vegetables than a recipe alone. I received this book as a gift 10+ years ago and it is my 'go to' reference for vegetables ever since. I was looking for another copy and happy to see it can still be purchased.
