One of the plants that may be able to help solve the crisis of world hunger has been with us ever since the beginning. Cole traces the amaranth from its days in pre-Columbian Central America, in Asia and Africa, to many of today's most advanced research centers where there is an exciting revival in alternative crops. The amaranth, in its eight thousand-some years, has seen many glorious times. A high-protein flour made from its seed was once a major part of meals in nearly every Mexican household. American Indians found it made a vibrant red dye, and the Chinese used the leafy greens as a nutritious vegetable staple. Popped and sweetened, it was a sacred ceremonial food in many parts of the world. Colorful varieties were planted in indoor and outdoor ornamental gardens. But as agriculture became commercialized, many food plants, like the amaranth, that had value in past cultures were forgotten. After centuries of obscurity, however, there is good reason to believe that amaranth will become important again. Among its attributes: ranks among the most efficient crops in production of dry matter, protein, and vitamins; contains protein of high nutritional quality; has a high content of minerals important to human nutrition; adapts to high temperatures when many of the common leafy, green vegetables are unproductive.

The remote and lush island of Ikaria in the northeastern Aegean is home to one of the longest-living populations on the planet, making it a "blue zone." Much of this has been attributed to Ikaria's stress-free lifestyle and Mediterranean diet--daily naps, frequent sex, a little fish and meat, free-flowing wine, mindless exercise like walking and gardening, hyper-local food, strong friendships, and a deep-rooted disregard for the clock. No one knows the Ikarian lifestyle better than Chef Diane Kochilas, who has spent much of her life on the island. Part cookbook, part travelogue, Kochilas's Ikaria is an introduction to the food-as-life philosophy and a culinary journey through luscious recipes, gorgeous photography, and captivating stories from locals. Capturing the true spirit of the island, Kochilas explains the importance of shared food, the health benefits of raw and cooked salads, the bean dishes that are passed down through generations, the greens and herbal teas that are used in the kitchen and in the teapot as "medicine," and the nutritional wisdom inherent in the ingredients and recipes that have kept Ikarians healthy for so long. Ikaria is more than a cookbook. It's a portrait of the people who have achieved what so many of us yearn for: a fuller, more meaningful and joyful life, lived simply and nourished on real, delicious, seasonal foods that you can access anywhere.

The Garden Seed Inventory is an essential reference for all serious vegetable growers who care about seeds and preserving our common garden heritage. This comprehensive catalog of catalogs is now available in its new, updated fifth edition, and it lists more than 7,300 nonhybrid varieties of everything from amaranth to zucchini.There's nothing sexy here, no color photographs or quaint illustrations. But the information presented in this book is so unique and invaluable that vegetable lovers everywhere will turn to it again and again, looking for a source that offers Grandpa's favorite tomato, or for a description of new plant introductions or unusual varieties. From Purple Dragon carrot to Howling Mob sweet corn, readers will discover an exciting new world of color and flavor, something that has been lost in these days of one-size-fits-all hybrids.Gardeners concerned with biodiversity and the environment will also appreciate the Garden Seed Inventory. Each vegetable section contains easy-to-follow graphic information on how many varieties have been lost (and gained) over the last twenty years. Gardeners and farmers who save their own seeds can quickly tell which varieties are only offered by one or two companies, and which ones need to be purchased and grown out so they won't be lost forever.As traditional plant breeding gives way to bioengineering and patented hybrids, it has become even more important to recognize and preserve our rich vegetable legacy: seeds brought to this country by immigrants from every corner of the world, or developed here by farmers and breeders for superior taste, regional adaptability, disease resistance, and other virtues. Far from being obsoleteor inferior, these varieties represent the cream of our vegetable crops. The Garden Seed Inventory opens the door and invites us all to discover them.
