This is a great resource. It mainly consists of multi-page descriptions of individual food items, notably a plethora of fruits and vegetables. For each item, there are basic facts about where it comes from and how to prepare it for eating. There is also background, such as where it is grown. I particularly enjoyed the section, for every item, that touched on some aspect of sustainability: pesticide or water use, locations grown, beneficial characteristics for health or planet, and other great tidbits. It's a reference, and also a fairly quick read, to get informed about the foods you eat. This isn't mainly a recipe book, and definitely isn't just a coffee table book. Learn from it, and return to it when you need more information about the foods you eat, or more ideas about foods you might like to start eating.
