Summaries and Reviews
Summary
First published in 1986 to rave reviews, an illustrated, encyclopedic guide to nearly one hundred of America's newest produce items includes botanical and historical information, suggestions on selection and storage, and more than four hundred easy-to-follow recipes.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: "Its' a truly invaluable trove of culinary historical, and botanical knowledge," wrote Gourmet's book reviewer in 1997, lamenting that Uncommon Fruits and Vegetables was out of print. Now the classic has returned in its original hard cover.Uncommon Fruits and Vegetables was published in 1986 to a fanfare of outstanding reviews: "If there were Emmys or Oscars for cookbooks, Elizabeth Schneider would surely receive one" Boston Globe; "the book has already become a must-have" Bon Appetite; "the timeliest and most truly helpful book of the year," proclaimed Time magazine.

More timely than ever, the visionary volume includes produce now available nationwide -- arugula, mango, kiwi, snow peas, and Swiss chard, as well as less familiar passion fruit, carambola, tamarillo, and chanterelles. Backdrops rich in culinary, botanical, and historical information set the stage for nearly 100 of these produce items. Detailed methods of selection, storage, and preparation lead to more than 400 easy-to-follow recipes designed to bring out the best in each fruit and vegetable.
