You have to be nuts about old cookery books to appreciate this one - and I most definitely am! It's not so much a cookbook, as John Evelyn's thoughts on diet, nature, wild and cultivated vegetable edibles, and many other related and unrelated things. It's not a cookbook as such, but anyone into foraging for wild edibles, and/or growing your own for own consumption, will find it interesting and informative. However, usual rules apply - don't eat anything you're not sure about, just because he says so. Things were a bit different in a time when Oil of Vitriol taken internally seems to have been regarded as a cure for a number of ailments!

A great manifesto for all sorts of herbs and vegetables, by one of the greatest intellects of the late 17th century.

Well ahead of his time 8 Oct 2012

John Evelyn, the seventeenth century diarist, virtuoso, and founding fellow of the Royal Society was well ahead of his time with this publication. Salad or sallet was considered food unbecoming for an aristocratic gentleman. His dedication to the King is priceless. Quite frankly, a few good recipes as well.
More than three hundred years old and still a good read!
A reprint is not a facsimile 29 Aug 2012

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although this version of John Evelyn's Discourse on Sallets is readable, it is a transcribed copy in a typewriter font, so any impression of the original 17th century book has been lost to my great disappointment as I usually share with an audience the original versions of the books I talk about. I cannot share this book except by personal excerpt.
