This excellent basic guide to vegetables is as much about gardening as cooking--for those fortunate enough to be able to grow their own. For me, it was the first all-vegetable volume that planted the seed that grew into my own specialization in the plant kingdom. It treats admirably, alphabetically, and simply, a broad spectrum of vegetables, providing sound advice for the selection, storage, and cooking of common and some uncommon produce.

I learned about this from Patricia Wells, who loves this book. I never saw the PBS show, but the book is indeed wonderful. Ahead of its time in terms of veg patch cooking; dated in parts but, on the whole, incredibly thorough and still very informative and relevant. Best recipes: Radish Top Soup, All the Squash recipes, Shinbone Soup.
