By the title, thot this was going to be a book about the diff foods, as in interesting info, history, facts. But it really is just a recipe book.
Good recipes, tho.

Visually nice photos of food. May try the purslane recipe which is interesting. Not so sure about the other ingredients listed. Have grown most of the items mentioned in the book. Author did a good job in describing how she get to know them.
