Review By: Home March 2006

In Food Plants of the World (Briza Publishers, 2005) Professor Ben-Erik van Wyk writes that people the world over have become more adventurous in their eating habits and are keen to experiment with new ingredients and recipes. Exotic foods are readily available and the wealth of recipe books, foof magazines and television programmes is evidence of a broad interest in organic and vegetarian food sources that people can grow themselves. The book answers questions about edible plants that are farmed worldwide or that grow wild. Three-hundred-and-fifty-four food plants are explained in full.
