It isn’t your usual cookbook that’s more about pretty photography than information.
Received this as a gift and was truly impressed. Over 700 pages long, it isn’t your usual cookbook that’s more about pretty photography than information. It is BURSTING with info on all the crazy produce (kohlrabi, leeks, radishes, etc. etc. etc.) that you often receive in a CSA box but end up wasting because you have no idea what to do with it. From how to store to how to prepare in every possible way, to food pairings and nutritional info, it truly is more of a reference book than a cookbook. My favorite parts of the book, though, are the sidebar articles, which tell stories of farmers and urban gardening initiatives, and help break down the interesting (and often confusing) world of community supported agriculture. I like to read these snippets while waiting for water to boil or veggies to roast. Better than flipping channels! 😛 If you or someone you know wants to understand where their food comes from and feel more connected to the earth and its bounty, I highly recommend this book. It’ll be used in their kitchen for years to come.
