1976's The Vegetable Book with Jerusalem Artichokes, Broccoli, Cream of Onion Soup & more: Vintage Cookbook Throwback Thursday

Vintage Cookbook: The Vegetable Book by Terence Conran & Maria Kroll

Publication Details: Collins , 1976 (with multiple editions after)

Subtitled "How to grow and cook your own vegetables" this terrific cookbook from the 70's sought to teach people how to do just that.

While not a vegetarian cookbook, in this one vegetables of all kinds are the focus. In addition to recipes centered around each specific vegetable there are also overviews on growing and preserving them.

The illustrations by David Fordham are also a standout.

Today we are featuring some of the "how to" pages as well as recipes related to Jerusalem Artichokes, broccoli, onions and more.
