Lovely book celebrates the delights of rhubarb,
This review is from: Rhubarbaria: Recipes for Rhubarb (English Kitchen) (Paperback)
A book on rhubarb was much-needed and this fills the gap beautifully. It explores the history of this delicious and under-appreciated vegetable (the author is a historian) but it also presents some great recipes, clearly described and wildly varied. It is small, beautifully packaged, and the green and pink colouring is lovely - it's therefore an excellent book for a present too. Although part of the 'English Kitchen' series, it is heavily influenced by the author's summer home in the Shetland Isles. Rhubarb is particulary appreciated here, as it is an indestructible plant which stands up to the wild weather. I very much recommend this book.
