Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini: The Essential Reference is at once an encyclopedia, a produce market manual, and a treasure trove of recipes. With produce specialist Elizabeth Schneider as your guide, take a seed-to-table voyage with more than 350 vegetables, both exotic and common. Discover lively newcomers to the North American cornucopia and rediscover classic favorites in surprising new guises. In this timely reference, Elizabeth Schneider divulges the secrets of the vegetable kingdom, sharing a lifetime of scholarly sleuthing and culinary experience. In her capable hands, unfamiliar vegetables such as amaranth become as familiar as zucchini -- while zucchini turns out to be more intriguing than you ever imagined. Each encyclopedic entry includes a full-color identification photo, common and botanical names, and an engaging vegetable "biography" that distills the knowledge of hundreds of authorities in dozens of fields -- scientists, growers, produce distributors, and chefs among them. Practical sections describe availability, selection, storage, preparation, and basic general use. Finally, the author's fresh contemporary recipes reveal the essence of each vegetable and a culinary sensibility that food magazine and cookbook readers have trusted for thirty years. Each entry concludes with a special "Pros Propose" section -- spectacularly innovative recipes suggested by professional chefs. Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini: The Essential Reference is an indispensable resource for home cooks, food professionals, gardeners, information seekers, and anyone who simply enjoys good reading.… (mais)

Vegetables from Amaranth to Zucchini by Elizabeth Schneider (2001)
  arosoff | Jul 10, 2021 |
At 6 pounds, Elizabeth Schneider's Vegetables From Amaranth to Zucchini: The Essential Reference: 500 Recipes and 275 Photographs is an absolute doorstop of a book. Happily for a book of this size and density, the text is quite lively ... educational, surely, but with just enough humor to keep things fun.

Every entry is accompanied by a full color photograph of the subject, includes common and botanical names, and gives some history of the vegetable as well as providing lots of good information regarding selection, storage, and cooking. The author is even nice enough to toss in a few recipes with each entry ("Parsley Root-Bean Puree with Bacon and Shallots" ... yum).

I also appreciated that rather than having a general entry called "Mushrooms" each variety was given it's own entry and full justice. Where I expected to find a general mushroom entry is instead a couple pages of thumbnail photographs and "see also" -- very nice idea for those of us who want a quick and easy visual guide for identifying the gnarly-looking mushroom we bought yesterday.

This book is very thoroughly indexed (Multiple indexes! By recipe category! By common and botanical name! By recipe, recipe ideas, chefs and cooks! I am in love) and comes with a nice bibliography full of some interesting sounding books.

I love this book and, if I owned it, would keep by my bedside table and read it every night. ( )
