A Very Cool Cookbook
Recently my pal Ori, introduced me to this book.
"Kitchen Garden Companion" is an outstanding and very comprehensive reference to have on the shelf. It's information is similar to Alice Water's Chez Panisse Vegetables cookbook, but times 100.
It is organized by ingredient. With each, the book covers some history and lore, it covers how to grow and treat the plants, from sprouting seeds to pruning stems and everything in between. Then, it goes on to cover how you would go about turning these ingredients into a delicious dinner.
At 122 clams, it's no small investment, but given the wealth of information I consider it a great value.
