The Vegetable Book

Colin Spencer brings us a fresh new look at vegetables, discussing what is available and when and how to get the best from them. Arranged by horticultural family, there are entries on more than 100 vegetables accompanied by more than 300 recipes. For every vegetable, each root, leaf, stem and tuber is lovingly examined: its history amusingly related; its properties, varieties and foibles investigated. Vegetarian dishes both classic and modern are also provided in a range of ways to present vegetables at their best, as side dishes and main courses such as Sweet Potato Pie, Onion Tart, Spinach Roulade and Red Pepper Cream, and Fennel Tempura. This book is illustrated with 12 beautiful line drawings by artist, Emma Dibben.
