Summary
"In the bountiful world of growing things, everything from roots to stems to fruits has contributed to our storehouse of eating delights. Edible: The Illustrated Guide to the Worlds Food Plants is a sumptuous book that explores the origins, history, and contemporary culinary uses of more than 250 fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, beverage plants, herbs and spices. Edible describes the tantalising tales behind the fresh produce you love to pick and prod, smell and savour. Discover how millions of crocus stamens are harvested and tranformed into a few ounces of precious saffron; why the watermelon is actually classified as a berry; and how the battle over nutmeg helped decide the fate of Manhattan."--Provided by publisher
