I ordered The Vegetable Bible because I was interested in top notch vegetable recipes. When I received the book and perused it thoroughly, it was more encyclopedic in content with copious, fabulous photographs instead of a recipe book. Tuebner is painstakingly thorough and for someone who wants to master every conceivable vegetable, their origin, seasonal info, best way to cook them, etc.... this is the book to buy. For someone who would like alot of recipes, this isn't the book to get....Deborah Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" would be more suitable. The above mentioned does not include many photographs, however.
I did return the cookbook for the lack of recipes.

This cookbook is a good introductory book on vegetables. It has a lot of pictures of vegetables, vegetables dishes, and techniques in preparing vegetables. Content-wise, the cookbook starts with a pretty good introduction to the health aspects of vegetables followed by an encyclopedia of different vegetables. It's not a comprehensive encyclopedia but the vegetables that it portrays, it gives historical as well as botanical info. Some Asian vegetables are mentioned in the encyclopedia. There's a section on the practical aspects of preparing vegetables and a wide variety of recipes involving varied cooking techniques such as raw to boiling to stuffing to braising to sweating. There's a fair number of recipes with some international flavor (European, Asian) but I think this cookbook is good for getting an overview of vegetables, in terms of historical info, health info, the different ways to cook vegetables, and a nice selection of recipes but not too overwhelming. But this is the cookbook to get about vegetables if you like pictures, more than 1000 color photographs!

This is a wonderful book detailing all vegetables imaginable. I love learning about vegetables and try out new ones, especially the ethnic ones. This book gives you good information about the vegetables and varieties available and also how to clean and cook them. A few recipes are also included, though it is mainly an encyclopedia of vegetables

When I received the book and perused it thoroughly, the contents were more encyclopedic with copious photographs instead of a recipe book. Teubner is painstakingly thorough and for someone who wants to master every conceivable vegetable, their origin, seasonal info, best way to cook same, and try a FEW quality recipes .... this is the book to buy. For someone who would like alot of recipes ....Deborah Madison's "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" would be more appealing for quantity and quality of recipes. The above mentioned does not include many photographs, however.
I did return the cookbook for the parsimonious recipes.
