Here’s yet another book from the Moosewood collective. This one takes a very different slant, though. It covers propagation, growing requirements and harvesting for many vegetables, herbs and edible flowers. From there it continues with culinary tips and garden planning. Finally it rounds it all off with recipes for using the garden grown food.

That's all a very tall order to cover in one book that's less than 300 pages, yet it manages to feel unhurried and covers the basis with no blatant holes. You're not going to find every little vegetable, herb or edible flower, but he covers more common ones. He includes the names of some of the varieties that are more suited for different cooking/eating purposes.

This may not be the most essential book you'll ever own, but its enthusiasm is infectious and overall it's a nice flower in the garden of your cooking and gardening books.
