The Book of Greens A Cook's Compendium by Jenn Louis
The Book of Greens A Cook's Compendium by Jenn Louis with Kathleen Squires is an encyclopedia of every green vegetable and edible plant. From, the well known and commonly used iceberg lettuce, to the infamous lawn pest- the dandelion, this book contains unexpected recipes as well as staples to accompany any meal. This book is a hybrid between a field guide of edible vegetation and a cook book in one volume. This hardcover book, filled with vivid photographs is perfect for the new beginning cook as well as for the expert who wants to trey something new and exotic. This volume contains basics and complicated recipes in addition to background information about the various featured edible greens. I'm not sure I will use this book to cook any recipes but it was an eye opener as to the wealth of recipes that can be created using leafy greens. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by 10 speed press for the purpose of writing this review.
