about The Compleat Squash

Part gardening book, part "encounters with remarkable vegetables," Amy Goldman's The Compleat Squash unearths the personalities—yes, personalities—of the pumpkin and the squash. They are members in good standing in the horticultural hall of fame, and Goldman lovingly ponders their case histories and culinary merits both with common and uncommon varieties. She gets glorious help from award-winning photographer Victor Schrager, who brings out their eclectic beauty in more than 150 luminous color portraits. Growing, harvesting, and seed-saving instructions are included for the gardener, and for the cook a selection of recipes that show off the unique, lovely flavors of these versatile vegetables.

Farmer John's Review:  Just one of the most amazing books you will ever own!  Amy really spends a great deal of time researching varieties and Victor takes the most amazing photos. Even if you thought you knew a lot about squash you will learn so much more.  I was delighted when I got this book and spent hours with my nose stuck in it.  Since I take veggie photos I really appreciate the art, time and creativity that Victor has gone to in order to showcase these amazing vegetables. This is a big coffee table book so be prepared!
