From the Back Cover:

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.
