Roots: The Definitive Compendium with more than 225 Recipes

Size Guide

For anyone who ever picked up a strangely shaped, gnarly looking vegetable at the farmers' market (in the author's case, burdock root) and said "what's this?" Roots is your go-to guide to the veggies found underground.

From the author of more than 10 cookbooks comes this comprehensive guide and collection of recipes using root vegetables. Discover the fascinating history and lore of 29 major roots, their nutritional content, how to buy and store them, and much more, from the familiar (beets, carrots, potatoes) to the unfamiliar (jicama, salsify, malanga) to the practically unheard of (cassava, galangal, crosnes). The best part? More than 225 recipes—salads, soups, side dishes, main courses, drinks, and desserts—that bring out the earthy goodness of each and every one of these intriguing vegetables. From Andean tubers and burdock to yams and yuca, this essential culinary encyclopedia lets dedicated home cooks achieve a new level of taste and sophistication in their everyday cooking.
