"I wanted to reduce animal protein in my diet and turned to the Great Bean. And what better place to turn than Elizabeth Berry's Great Bean Book! I stumbled upon this book in my midst of my search, and it has proven to be quite a valuable discovery! The book itself is quite elegant - I keep it close at hand just to delight at the pictures, enjoy the luxury of the paper quality, and to glean more information about different bean varieties. The recipes have been inspirational. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone seeking more adventure in the legume world!" -- Anne L on September 20, 2012
"I thought this book was great. Origins and descriptions of flavors of all beans were so interesting and informative. Wonderful recipes. Personal notes of Elizabeth's favorites was great. Finally, where to find these beans was so helpful. Some recipe books leave this one out. Also,lovely pictures."
