Review By: SA Gardening March 2006

What is canistel or perilla or rambutan? Consult Ben-Erik van Wyk's fascinating photographic guide to edible plants to find out. It contains accurate scientific information about the food we eat or use to flavour other foods. The author identifies 350 plants with a checklist of 800 commonly used plants. The book includes historical facts and modern usages with magnificent colour photographs. There is also information on cultivation, harvesting, origins, edible plant parts, culinary uses and nutritional value. Included is a section on nutrition, a comprehensive guide to commercialized food plants and an informative glossary.
