5.0 out of 5 stars Encyclopedic on Exotic Fruits July 12 2001
Format:Paperback
Van Aken is lauded by the likes of Emeril Lagasse as being a true pioneer in a new cuisine which fuses American-Caribbean-Pacific Rim foods into exciting new taste combos.
Significant in this cuisine is the use of tropical fruit, so Van Aken has been experimenting. Here we garner the fruits of his research on fruits, with this guide. He also prepared the colorful posters which one can obtain, deatialing the two categories of tropical and sub-tropical varieties.
This is from a series of such works put out by Ten-Speed Press, one of my personal favorite cookbook pubs. They do Trotters, et al. This is another of their fine "The Great ... series," also I enjoy their one on pears and am awaiting the one on mangoes. They go through all the types and then provide recipes, here on drinks and salsas, and desserts, etc.
Fine reference work for those of us who like to find exotic, different components to cook with. This and his wonderful cookbook "New World Cuisine" will get a workout at my kitchen.

This is a beautiful book of lovely photographs and tempting recipies. Great for summer parties & cook outs. Mango and guava are my favorites & there are wonderful recipies for these in the book. Could also be used as a "Coffee Table" Book because of the attractive photography.

3.0 out of 5 stars For the money, not a bad deal June 4 2011
By L. Macafee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Somehow I thought the book would have more substance to it when ordering. The book is mainly a picture book of pretty color photographs of fruits with a few recipes on the author's preferred method of eating. It's neat to picture rare fruits I had not heard of before, but it is not a guide on how to grow the plants, it just has pictures and some recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars wish there were more books like this Sept. 16 2009
By Bryan K. Shastri Carpen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
its a pamphlet size book, part of a great series (citrus and mango also)

wish there was a larger book with preferably better pictures, even real sized pictures of smaller fruits would be ideal.
