101 Recipes Using Edible Plants from around the World
Distributed for Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew
This unique cookbook also touches on historical, botanical, and economic themes. Each featured plant comes to life through beautiful botanic illustrations from Kew’s archives, and tales of travel and adventure reveal the plant’s role in culinary history. We learn how Europe’s fortunes turned on peppercorn and that a Turkish ambassador once made the most sought-after coffee in town. With a dash of history, a splash of travel, and a healthy serving of foolproof recipes, Kew’s Global Kitchen Cookbook is the perfect gift for anyone who loves a good story served up with great food.
