Using quotations from such notables as Thoreau, Goethe, Sylvia Plath, Margaret Mead, and Miss Piggy, "Cornucopia" presents a fascinating history of botanical facts, fables, poetry, and trivia. Delectable paintings, photography, and engravings further celebrate fruits and vegetables (both exotic and domestic), creating a bountiful blend of food lore that is also a feast for the eyes and mind. Imaginative recipes are sprinkled throughout to create a gift book that will delight the gardener, gourmet, or gastronome.
