About the Author:

Aliza Green is a chef, food writer, and teacher based in Philadelphia. She is the author of The Bean Bible: A Legumaniac’s Guide to Lentils, Peas, and Every Edible Bean on the Planet! and co-author of Ceviche!: Seafood, Salads, and Cocktails with a Latino Twist.

From Publishers Weekly:

Ever get chicory confused with curly endive? Can’t tell a turnip from a rutabaga? Wonder what’s to be done with a pattypan squash? Green (The Bean Bible) offers these answers and more in this little guide to fruits and vegetables. Though the photographs in the color insert are of middling quality and intermittent help (only a non-native English speaker is likely to appreciate and/or need pictures of such basics as green peppers, carrots and corn), the rest of the book is surprisingly handy. For each fruit or vegetable, Green includes alternate names, a general description, its growing season and tips on storage and preparation. Her serving suggestion for arugula, for example, is an easy, flavorful pesto; "flavor affinities" for the peppery green, she notes, include beets, goat cheese and tomatoes. For anyone who’s ever been wowed by the colorful abundance at a farmer’s market but has stopped short of buying persimmons, broccoflower or samphire for lack of any idea what to do with them, Green’s guidebook will be an excellent resource.

Descripción Quirk Books, United States, 2004. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Grocery store aisles and farmers market stalls are more colourful than ever, with heaping piles of familiar and strange produce. Sure, you ll recognise apples, pears, lettuce, and celery, but would you know quince, amaranth, jicama, or kumquats if you saw them? And no matter what you purchased, would you know how to eat it? The answers to these questions and more can be found in Field Guide to Produce, a handy reference to nearly every fruit and vegetable imaginable. If you ve never seen the item before, flip through the colour section to find a photograph of it, and then refer to its full description. In the descriptive pages, you ll learn just what to look for in an ideal piece - whether at its sweetest, crispest, or most flavourful. You ll also find out about its country of origin and growing season. Step-by-step directions teach you how to prep the item before eating it (whether you need to peel it, blanch it, or eat only a certain part), and particular flavour affinities are listed to help you prepare it successfully.
