In Vegetable Literacy: Cooking and Gardening with Twelve Families from the Edible Plant Kingdom, Deborah Madison, America's leading authority on vegetarian cooking, reveals the surprising relationships between vegetables, edible flowers, and herbs within the same botanical families. Because of their shared characteristics, plant-based ingredients within the same family can be used interchangeably in cooking. For example, knowing that dill, cumin, parsley, coriander, and caraway come from the umbellifer family shows why they’re such good matches for carrots, a member of the same botanical family tree. With more than 300 classic yet simple recipes, and inspiring improvisation in the kitchen and curiosity in the garden, this book will change the way you eat and cook vegetables and help inform your next edible garden plot.
