The Edible Asian Garden by Rosalind Creasy

Most of us have sampled Asian cuisine at some point in our lives—but what if we could grow pae choi or bamboo shoots in our own garden, and prepare healthy, delicious, and authentic Asian meals right at home? Rosalind Creasy, the doyenne of edible landscaping, has considered the full array of Asian herbs and vegetables and made it possible for the average person to grow and enjoy them right from the backyard. With beautiful photography and region-specific growing tips, Creasy features delicacies from Chinese, Japanese, Indian, and southeast Asian cuisines.

With plant information and practical how-to, Creasy takes us on a tour of three of her own successful Asian gardens—one suitable for cool weather, another for warmer weather, and a stir-fry garden—to show the variety of vegetables that can be grown in a range of climates and for a variety of purposes.

In "The Asian Garden Encyclopedia," Creasy gives information for 108 distinct varieties of Asian vegetables. Looking for a novel ingredient to add to Friday night stir-fry supper? Why not grow it—the Resources section offers many seed sources for Asian vegetables that are easier to plant than to find at your local market.

Finally, in the Recipes section, Creasy presents common Asian ingredients and cooking methods. Enjoy a piping-hot bowl of miso soup as a fortifying breakfast as the Japanese do, or brew some chrysanthemum tea instead. For lunch, sample the classic Indonesian salad called gado-gado;for dinner, try a luscious red Thai curry. In the evening , relax in front of the TV and watch the ball game with beer and fresh-shelled soybeans—considered a popular snack in Asia. Asian cuisine is certainly delicious—and unlike far too many of life's pleasures, it's also good for you.
