A great cook book dedicated to vegetables which are grown in North American gardens.
Recipes are easy to follow, with lots of helpful hints added. Excellent background on each vegetable. Beautifully illustrated with colour photos. A few recipes include meat/vegetables as well, but the focus in definitely vegetables.

I have had a copy of this book for ages - well worn, lots of notes. It went missing - neither child would admit to borrowing it, so I just had to replace it. Especially love the recipes for Pumpkin Chiffon Pie, fresh garden pea soup and corn chowder.

My Aunt gave me a copy after she could tell the cookbook she'd given me for a gift didn't match my vegetarian leaning eating habits. It was immediately obvious why this was one of her favorites. I've never been so suprised by a cookbook's extensive, yet accesible knowledge. It single-handedly introduced cooking with greens and cabbages into my diet. Now that I've spoiled my first copy with wear, I'm hoping my Aunt will endow me with another.....hint, hint. The only downer...and this is minor, is that she cooks with electric, and my kitchen is gas, but I'll live.

This is my all-time favorite cookbook. It isn't just veggies; there are plenty of main courses and appetizers, too. It isn't just gardening; I don't have a vegetable garden, but reading the gardening parts of the book makes me wish I did. You can see Ms. Morash's background in French cuisine, but she wears it lightly. She is so down to earth that her knowledge never becomes overbearing, and she includes plenty of basics about how to prepare fresh food and how to cook it simply. The book doesn't have recipes with essential but arcane ingredients that you couldn't possibly find outside Manhattan or LA, and it doesn't have recipes with junky ingredients or weird combinations. Best of all, everything is explained well and thoroughly tested, so you can cook it right the first time, even if (like me) you're not a terrific cook. It's an outstanding book for just about anybody.

WOW! This book is not just for gardeners, although it does provide growing how-to's. It is a wonderfully descriptive trip through the author's family garden and kitchen as she shares tips for choosing, preparing and getting the most from vegetables. The recipes included are terrific. ...and the color photographs add even more mouth-watering appeal! This is a don't miss book for gardeners and urbanites alike. Think of it as a veggie bible for fresh market shopping.

IN RESPONSE TO:Beware the Calories, January 8, 1999 REVIEW
For me the best part of the book is that it is: (in order) alphabetical, reviews how to grow( I am not a gardener,so do not need this section),how to pick or choose when buying , how to store once at home, how to prepare for cooking, how to cook various methods, then various finishing touches for side dishes such as what spices go well, ( this is one part that does usually have butter or a sauce for serving ideas with herbs etc) this can be used for ideas and it does not take a lot of butter etc per serving to have a vegetable taste good, then there are recipes which I have not even tried!! But I love the how to buy,store, prepare and cook instructions even for those vegetable I have cooked frequently and for those I still have not cooked. I just recently picked it up out of my cupboard
again thinking I really need to cook more vegetables, even if I am the only one in my family that will eat it! My husband does not like very many vegetables, and my kids vary in what they will eat. Pleease do not let that review make you hesitate, I love this book!!! After reading another review I now have to try the marinara sauce mentioned! here is the review I am responding to. My thought is when you are trying to cook low fat you should read a basic low fat cookbook and then know you can substitute milk, lowfat milk,or evaporated skim milk for crream/half& half and use a broth base for a sauce instead of butter or oil. These are easy ways to alter recipes. I think this book gives great ideas on how to serve a vegetable for example it mentions adding pinenuts with broccoli, it is these additions that make my family rave about the vegetable instead of just serving with salt and pepper.
