An authoritative and glorious A-Z of more than 350 ingredients and 350 recipes, set to become an essential tome in the River Cottage library

This huge and beautiful book is a River Cottage 'Larousse' of ingredients. With entries on vegetables, fruits, herbs, spices, meat, fish, fungi, foraged foods, dairy, oils, vinegar and much more, it celebrates more than 300 ingredients that the modern cook might come across.

Each ingredient is described by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall or an expert contributor from his River Cottage team - for example Nick Fisher covers seafood and John Wright writes on mushrooms. They explain which varieties to look for and how best to prepare them, and provide detailed information on seasonality, habitat, alternative names, Latin names, landing sizes (for fish), and easy growing instructions (for vegetables and herbs). There is also a delicious recipe for every entry.

With stunning photography by Simon Wheeler and evocative illustrations, this is an ambitious work that will become an indispensable guide for every kitchen.

    -The River Cottage crew hit all the right notes in their descriptions, whether they're singing the praises of pork and spinach or explaining the various applications of salt . . . a fascinating and impressively produced work.- - Publishers Weekly-While these essays on individual ingredients offer comprehensive data on the origins, propagation, and culinary uses of vegetables, herbs, seafood, and meats, they are written with such enthusiasm and good humor that even nonfoodies may find themselves both intrigued and even laughingout loud. Written with a decidedly British voice, the book pours out a torrent of well-organized andvaluable reference material.- - Booklist
