Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Review from previous edition Ditch Delia Smith... and tuck into The New Oxford Book of Food Plants... a concise and well-illustrated historical, biological, pharmacological, nutritional and culinary guide to eating plants. (New Scientist)

Hand painted full-page illustrations are just one of the delights of this comprehensive guide to edible plants... An appealing, indispensible reference book for everyone who loves to eat, cook, and garden. (Gusto!)

The illustrations are both handsome and helpful. The text, in its terse way, is a knockout... It should be everyone's cup of tea (not to mention cocoa, and of course, coffee). (The Guardian)

This book... will surely become an indispensible reference work and teaching aid. May it sell by the thousand! (Plant Talk)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Oxford Book of Food Plants is a beautifully illustrated compendium of facts about the plants we grow in our gardens and use in our cooking. Gorgeous botanical illustrations are accompanied by accessible yet authoritative descriptions of each plant, along with fascinating historical details and nutritive values. This is a new edition of a classic book -- fully updated with the latest nutritional research, as well as beautiful new plates and descriptions of many exotic edible plants that have only recently found their way into our markets and onto our kitchen tables -- it is a must-have for anyone who loves good food, cooking, and gardening.

Excellent for learning about food plants from all over. 14 octobre 1999
Par Susan D. Schoneweis - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This book is great for learning to identify food plants from all over the world. The illustrations are realistic and each plant is described. I use it to help my 4-H horticulture judging team prepare for the national judging contest. The plants and illustrations in this new edition are the same as in the original book, however the 1998 edition has an excellent section on phytonutrients.

great gift, reference, and coffee table book 5 novembre 2000
Par Orin Hargraves - Publié sur
Format: Broché
The original edition of this book was out of print for some years and it is delightful to see it out again, and expanded no less. It combines 2 great virtues: highly readable and informative text with illustrations of a quality that are "suitable for framing." It is a great book for anyone who takes an interest in botany, cooking, or gardening and you couldn't go wrong giving it as a gift to one of these types. It's also great for reference. If you're getting it as a gift I suggest ordering 2, because you'll want one for yourself when you see it.

I love being able to actually see the evolution of a plant food from its beginnings, all the way to my plate. This book is a fantastic resource for plant foods and full of thorough information. Love it!

I bought this book on a recommendation by The Scientist. It does a great job of describing the matter and the pictures are beautiful. It makes learning about plants fun.

okay 12 juin 2015

I had this as a young student and thought it was the coolest but it is oddly variable in terms of the specific information about each plant. Also missing a few. I'd rather not have to go Wikipedia for details (one minor example, while caffeine content is mentioned for coffee, it is not for tea. Also, in this day, a few maps showing origin and distribution would be really nice. I'm looking for something a little better and a little more comprehensive.
