The New Oxford Book of Food Plants

A old classic is now a good new read: The New Oxford Book of Food Plants is the work of a botanist and nutritionist. As they write in the introduction:

"The purpose of this book is to provide accurate and attractive illustrations, and textual descriptions, of the plants that serve the human race for food."

Along the way anecdotes and fascinating facts supposedly abound. I am going to get a copy myself.

Here is the review of the book, with some multimedia built in bonus.
