Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables: A Commonsense Guide was first published in 1986 to a fanfare of outstanding reviews and has become a modern-day classic. Now more timely than ever, this encyclopedic cookbook answers the most pertinent questions about the rainbow of fruits and vegetables available in supermarkets nationwide. Here is what home cooks need to know about arugula, cilantro, mango, shiitake, and snow pea as well as the less familiar carambola, chanterelle, lemongrass, passion fruit, and tomatillo. Descriptions rich in culinary, botanical, and historical information set the stage for nearly 100 of these produce items, while 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.

Uncommon Fruits & Vegetables is an indispensable reference for home cooks and professionals, gardeners and world travelers, and the food-curious everywhere.

“A truly invaluable trove of culinary historical and botanical knowledge.”

“The timeliest and most truly helpful book of the year.”

“If there were Emmys or Oscars for cookbooks, Elizabeth Schneider would surely receive one.”
—Boston Globe

About the Author

Elizabeth Schneider has been demystifying fruits and vegetables for a quarter century, for both home cooks and professionals. To chefs, growers, distributors, and food editors, she is this country's premiere specialty produce authority — and "America's first vegetable rights activist" (Advertising Age).

For ten years, Schneider's "Produce Pro" series has appeared in Food Arts, a food industry journal. This series and "Vegetable Wise," published in Eating Wellmagazine, have won James Beard awards for best magazine feature series. Schneider is also an award-winning author of three other cookbooks and hundreds of articles, which have appeared in Gourmet, Food &Wine, The New York Times, and a dozen other publications.
