The countries that border the Mediterranean are exotic, alluring, and diverse, as is the multitude of Mediterranean vegetable preparations. To open this world the American kitchen, the author presents an original and comprehensive A-Z culinary reference.
Each entry describes a vegetable; explains its origins, its culinary history, how to grow it, and where to get it: and provides recipes. Never before has one book collected such a wealth of information on this topic. The vegetables include those used by home cooks every day, as well as those that are readily available but cooks often aren't sure how to prepare.
