Reviews

A lovely book that makes you feel at once hungry for these plants and satiated by the knowledge you just reaped about them. (Audobon) Quirky... entertaining... Evelyne Bloch-Dano's book confirms that we are what we eat, and that vegetables, like Bloch-Dano's gardens, are firmly rooted in the realm of imagination. (Times Literary Supplement) Evelyne Bloch-Dano displays here erudite command of culinary history with both literary and historical anecdotes.... Digesting the contents of this little book yields a trove of trivia with which to impress shoppers and vendors alike at the farmers' market. (Booklist)
