Moving beyond the usual crops of potatoes and yams, this sourcebook offers up a feast of tropical and hardy tubers that are easy to grow, great to look at, and delicious to eat. In addition to being a fascinating culinary history, it provides detailed tips for buying, growing, harvesting, and cooking each of the featured vegetables. Tropical giants like elephant ears and yautia provide exotic accents in a summer border or container, then easily move indoors when the days get cooler. Hardy plants like North American Natives spring beauty and Jack-in-the-Pulpit can stay in the ground all year-round, providing an appealing floral display in spring and hearty nourishment in fall. The dozens of inspired recipes make this a must-have for adventurous gardeners and gourmet chefs alike.
