This book is exquisite. The photographs make your mouth water. There aren't many recipes but the recipes make unique flavour combinations to enliven a meal.

"Ripe" begins with a warm, entertaining and inviting introduction, immediately establishing itself as a cookbook free of intimidation and pretension. The authors then present an extensive array of fruits and vegetables organized by colour; they devote a page to the qualities and usages of each produce item, then provide a recipe featuring that item.

These recipes entice the reader and seem thoughtfully laid out. Brief anecdotes make working with this book feel like cooking with a friend and beautiful, colourful photos turn the book into a display piece. Although "Ripe" could use another recipe or two per fruit/vegetable, it does excite the reader to plan a trip down the produce aisle.

Beautiul book. Not very many recipes and only a couple that would actually make. Not tempted to buy my own copy.
