This is a great book for widening your vegetable repertoire and knowledge. If you've ever seen a vegetable at the greengrocers or supermarket, been tempted to try it but wondered what on earth to do with it, this book will help. Concentrating on quality, each vegetable has an introductory section telling you how to check for freshness, different varieties and what they are best suited to, a basic guide to preparing and cooking the vegetable in various ways and a chart to show when it's in season. Gregg's passion for and knowledge of vegetables comes through and he's not afraid to give his opinion. Yellow peppers are "just silly" but he does explain why. And indeed, what is the point of baby sweetcorn? Following the intro section, each vegetable then gets a number of recipes, some quick and easy, some more elaborate but all seem achieveable. The ones tried so far turned out well and inspired us to try new vegetables. There is a good balance of vegetarian, side dish, meat and fish recipes and there's even the odd desert/cake thrown in. Lovely photography - not all the recipes are illustrated but the balance of photos to text is good. All in all, definitely worth buying to help break out of a frozen pea habit and achieve "five a day".

Actually this is a very nice book, covering many vegetables and providing ways to handle them in the kitchen. And... not all recepies are vegetarian as you might think.
