The Long Shadow: The Legacies of the Great War in the Twentieth Century by David Reynolds

Long Shadow is broad but rich in historical perspective, specifically in reference to the First World War shaping the 20th century.  Informative, insightful, and certainly well worth looking through since August 2014 will mark the hundredth anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War.

Vegetable Literacy by Deborah Madison

Unlike typical cookbooks, Madison organizes her recipes using, “the 12 different families of the animal kingdom”.  In doing so the reader’s eyes are open to the similarities of these vegetables and how to best bring out the flavors of these unique families.  In addition to recipes, this book also contains a wealth of information about each individual vegetable.  Accompanied by stunning photographs, this cookbook is a great way to get fresh ideas for using the vegetables from your summer garden. 

 

The Beekman 1802 Heirloom Vegetable Cookbook: 100 Delicious Heritage Recipes from the Farm and Garden
