For those who already have experience getting their hands dirty in the garden, this handbook will help them refine their gardening skills and cultivate gourmet quality food. The book also fills in the blanks that exist between growing food in the garden and using it in the kitchen with guides to 50 of the best-loved, tastiest vegetables, herbs, and small fruits. The guides give readers easy-to-follow planting and growing information, specific instructions for harvesting all the edible parts of the plant, advice on storing food in a way that maximizes flavor, basic preparation techniques, and recipes. The recipes at the end of each guide help readers explore the foods they grow and demonstrate how to use unusual foods, like radish greens, garlic scapes, and green coriander seeds.

Great gardening/cookbook for Seattle-ites and folks in the Pacific Northwest.

What a wonderful resource this book is! From planning your garden, fertilizing and preventing disease and pests, the author provides good instruction for the amateur gardener. Those with more experience will definitely enjoy the chapters devoted to particular types of vegetables, such as legumes, the cabbage family, fruits and herbs.

The author also includes dozens of savory recipes for cooking your garden’s produce. Lemony Broccoli Rabe sounded very appealing, as did the recipes for Strawberry Basil Ice Cream, Fennel Potato and Apple Gratin and Herbed Edamame Salad. In addition, the author also provides great tips on storing vegetables, so you can have a little taste of summer all year long.

Wonderful photographs by Jim Henkens supplement this delightful book, providing mouth watering appeal from garden to basket or cutting board, and finally to the table. This book is a great gift idea.

Nice format, beautiful photos. Good information for the experienced gardener, on planting, growing and harvesting. The cooking side is a bit sketchy, but the recipes seem accessible and not too extreme. Geared for people who actually have a piece of land to work, rather than apartment gardeners.
