Review:

Review from previous edition Ditch Delia Smith... and tuck into The New Oxford Book of Food Plants... a concise and well-illustrated historical, biological, pharmacological, nutritional and culinary guide to eating plants. (New Scientist)

Hand painted full-page illustrations are just one of the delights of this comprehensive guide to edible plants... An appealing, indispensible reference book for everyone who loves to eat, cook, and garden. (Gusto!)

The illustrations are both handsome and helpful. The text, in its terse way, is a knockout... It should be everyone's cup of tea (not to mention cocoa, and of course, coffee). (The Guardian)

This book... will surely become an indispensible reference work and teaching aid. May it sell by the thousand! (Plant Talk)
