Companion to her prize-winning Vegetable Book, Jane Grigson's alphabetical guide to fruit advises us on selecting the finest fruits in season, cooking them in sweet or savoury dishes, serving them as desserts or as treats on their own. From apple to water-melon, including the familiar and the exotic, Jane Grigson's Fruit Book is a work to treasure.
'Scholarly and erudite, witty and learned, from time to time hilariously funny.'
'I take as much pleasure in reading Jane Grigson's lyrical yet well-researched and intriguing introductions to each subject as I do in executing her recipes.'
Susan Campbell, Observer
