Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

In what is called "a gardening book for cooks and a cookbook for gardeners," Hirsch offers brief seed-starting instructions, cultural requirements, harvesting instructions, garden design plans, and culinary tips for a variety of vegetables and herbs. He also includes general gardening techniques, insect control, and recipes from the Moosewood kitchens. Of special interest are the culinary tips, especially for less-common vegetables and for herbs. This book has the visual attractiveness of the other Moosewood titles, with charming initials and line drawings on the text pages, decorative title pages for each section, and garden plans and drawings throughout. Not a necessary purchase, this may be desirable in libraries serving sizable vegetarian populations. (Index not seen.)-- Carol Cubberly, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg

Review

"With his extensive knowledge, David Hirsch gently leads green-thumbed cooks from beginners to masters. (I especially like the culinary tips for each vegetable and herb that he shares along the way!) A treasure trove of great information you'¬?ll definitely want to keep handy." -Rosalind Creasy, author of The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping "Some of us can cook and some of us can garden, but we can'¬?t always get the two skills to meet. In this newly revised The Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden, David Hirsch tells us not only what to plant, but how to take care of it and how to cook it. From exotic heirloom vegetables to everyday staples, this book has it all-a must-have for the cook and gardener."-James Peterson, author of Sauces and Splendid Soups

By Melanie on August 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
It's called "a gardening book for cooks and a cookbook for gardeners." David Hirsch has updated and revised this different and terrific cookbook. The subtitle ("Creative Gardening for the Adventurous Cook"), encapsulates quite nicely why this is a cookbook far beyond the norm. Written specifically to help in growing vegetables so that we can cook with them, each flower, herb or vegetable is accompanied by tips for its best use in the kitchen.

Published originally in 1992, the 2004 update includes more information, resources and recipes. The text is simple yet thorough, and is chock-full of tips, ideas, illustrations and charming anecdotes. In simple, straightforward text, Hirsch gives instructions for growing, harvesting, and cooking with over 75 vegetables and herbs.

The cookbook is accessible for beginners, while being complex and satisfying enough for more experienced gardeners. Chapters are devoted to gardening techniques, crop rotation, seed starting, and natural ways to defend against insects. Another chapter covers various kinds of gardens, from hillside, to walled patio, to container gardening, while the 70+ recipes will showcase the fruits of your labor and help transform them to the the pleasures of the table.

The recipes are delicious and comprehensive, from soups, dips and salads to appetizers and main dishes. Hirsch also includes information on cooking times and techniques, as well as the effective use of herbs (with advice for planting, compatibility and cooking). It is hard to pick favorites, but the Vegetable "Pasta", Summer Rolls, and Portuguese Kale Soup are among my favorites so far.

The recipes are not all vegan (although of course they are vegetarian), but vegan options can be substituted (soy cheese for non-soy, etc). A must have cookbook for gardeners and cooks alike.--By Lisa Steele

This is an easy-to-use and easy to read book with helpful tips on not only selecting and growing, but cooking with your veggies, edible flowers and herbs. There is also a great list of mail-order sources with descriptions of supplies. I especially liked the design section for its simple and straightforward approach to considerations and approaches towards my garden layout.

I am a fan of the Moosewood cookbooks and an ardent gardener. I thought this book would be an excellent addition to my collection of gardening books; however, I soon discovered that it really doesn't apply to gardening in my part of the US. The east coast and south Texas have little in common when it comes to weather, soil, and rainfall. Even so, it's a lovely book, and I'm sorry I had to return it.
