From Library Journal:
JOY LARKCOM is the author of The Salad Garden: Salad from Seed to Table, and is a pioneer in organic gardening. A recent Garden Writer of the Year in Britain, she has been awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's prestigious Veitch Memorial Medal.
Larkcom, a British-based gardener and author of The Salad Garden ( LJ 5/1/84), presents a comprehensive volume on Chinese and Japanese vegetables. Over 100 varieties are listed with information on scientific and Oriental names, general background, cultivation requirements, and use in the kitchen. An additional section focuses on gardening techniques, such as "cut and come again" methods and protected cropping. The book concludes with a short collection of simple recipes. The information-dense text is occasionally lightened by high-quality line drawings and several pages of color photographs. The thorough index will be helpful for individuals interested in determining the identity of vegetables found in Oriental markets. As a whole, Oriental Vegetables focuses more on information for the "garden" than the "kitchen," and it should be a fine addition for most gardening collections, especially in such areas where interest in Oriental food is high.
