Reviews from the previous edition

"Ditch Delia Smith [...] and tuck into The New Oxford Book of Food Plants [...] a concise and well-illustrated historical, biological, pharmacological, nutritional and culinary guide to eating plants."
New Scientist

"Hand painted full-page illustrations are just one of the delights of this comprehensive guide to edible plants [...] An appealing, indispensible reference book for everyone who loves to eat, cook, and garden."
Gusto!

"The illustrations are both handsome and helpful. The text, in its terse way, is a knockout [...] It should be everyone's cup of tea (not to mention cocoa, and of course, coffee)."
The Guardian

"This book [...] will surely become an indispensible reference work and teaching aid. May it sell by the thousand!"
