The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia, Illustrated by Peggy Markel

For those of us who love to cook or to garden, each ingredient has a personality. We develop relationships with our favorite vegetables, fruits and grains, returning to our favorites, thrilled when they come back into season or we can invite them to another new recipe.

Written by Rebecca Wood and featuring over 70 drawings from Peggy Markel, The New Whole Foods Encyclopedia is a reference guide and an ode to the tastes and textures, and healing value, of the ordinary foods we eat each day. It is a perfect gift for chefs and cooks, for gardeners, for foodies, and anyone who appreciates the taste and personality of ingredients.
