To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is an excellent, easy to use cookbook and a great resource to have in the house so no matter what you bring home from the market, you'll be able to get a good idea how to cook it properly, along with several specific recipes for each of dozens of kinds of vegetables. I used to borrow a copy from a neighbor, but I finally bought my own and I probably use it at least twice a month (and have brought dishes I've made from it to my neighbor as a thank-you). A great basic cookbook, and unlike random googling for vegetable cooking guidance, you can count on Alice Waters to always give good advice.
It's true. You really can't go wrong with Alice. Her appreciation for the freshest, finest ingredients grown and prepared with care never fails to shine through in her books. This book is organized beautifully (alphabetically by vegetable, recipes listed from simplest to most complex), and she provides a clear and inspired introduction to each vegetable at the start of every chapter, including notes about seasonality, caring for it in your garden, and preparation tips. A must for any lover of food!
I love Alice Waters and her recipes - so fresh, creative. My only negative on this book is that it does not contain color photographs of the dishes (something I love in a cookbook). That being said, it is jam-packed with delicious recipes -in fact, an entire chapter per vegetable!
