In Jane Grigson's Vegetable Book, American readers, gardeners and food lovers will find everything they've always wanted to know about the history and romance of 75 different vegetables, from artichokes to yams, and learn how to use them in hundreds of different recipes, from the exquisitely simple Broccoli Salad to the engagingly esoteric Game with Tomato and Chocolate Sauce.
Jane Grigson gives basic preparation and cooking instructions for every one of the vegetables discussed, and recipes for eating them in every style from least adulterated to most adorned, but this is by no means a book intended for vegetarians alone. There are recipes for Cassoulet, Chicken Gumbo and even Dr. William Kitchiner's 1817 version of Bubble and Squeak (fried beef and cabbage.)
Try: Eliza Acton's Salad of Young Vegetables, Fricasse of Artichoke Bottoms, Asparagus and Chicken Gratin, Aubergine Kuku, Avocado Pancakes, Greek Stewed Beans, Scandinavian Beetroot and Herring Salad, Goose and Sauerkraut, Italian Carrot and Almond Cake, Chayote Creole, Chicken with Cucumber Cream Sauce, Apicius' Lentil and Mussel Dish, Cypriot Lamb Stew, Potatoes and Pears from Lucerne, Turkish Candied Pumpkin, Spinach Souffle, Fried Chicken Maryland with Corn Fritters, etc.
