He also includes general gardening techniques, insect control, and recipes from the Moosewood kitchens. Of special interest are the culinary tips, especially for less-common vegetables and for herbs.
"With his extensive knowledge, David Hirsch gently leads green-thumbed cooks from beginners to masters. (I especially like the culinary tips for each vegetable and herb that he shares along the way!) A treasure trove of great information you'll definitely want to keep handy."

"Some of us can cook and some of us can garden, but we can't always get the two skills to meet. In this newly revised The Moosewood Restaurant Kitchen Garden, David Hirsch tells us not only what to plant, but how to take care of it and how to cook it. From exotic heirloom vegetables to everyday staples, this book has it all-a must-have for the cook and gardener."
—James Peterson, author of Sauces and Splendid Soups
