San Francisco, CA, United States, 2013/01/17 - Cooks, gardeners, and consumers can learn about both familiar and exotic plant-based food - FoodFoto.net.
A new full-color eBook from San Francisco based food photographer Audrey Suzanne Jamieson facilitates the growing public interest in making broader and healthier eating choices. The Visual Directory of Plant-Based Food: 625 Fruits, Vegetables, Herbs & Grains is a cooking and gardening reference and artistic photography collection showcasing the pure and often abstract beauty of raw food. Jamieson spent several years photographing and organizing the extensive collection in both the United States and Central America.
The Visual Directory of Plant-Based Food includes all the familiar items found at the grocery and many unusual choices. There are 11 varieties of eggplant, 14 different onions, and exotic items like sapote, cherimoya, and malanga root. It contains easy-to-understand definitions and correctly identifies items like squash as fruits that are used as culinary vegetables. It can educate and inspire cooks and gardeners to expand their food repertoire.
The comprehensive source for recognizing plant-based foods by their appearance, food category, and by their botanical and common names includes 1145 photographs. It is offered at the reduced price of $2.99 (retail $8.76) through January 31, 2013 as a direct download on Amazon. It is available for Kindle Fire, iPad, Android, or can be used by anyone with internet access through the Kindle Cloud.
“Shifting ourselves to primarily plant-based eating can improve and lengthen our lives and is a necessity for saving our earth, too,” Jamieson says. “The exponential growth of animal-based consumption cannot be sustained. The Visual Directory of Plant-Based Food serves as a catalyst for exploration and appreciation of the diversity of choices and flavors available to enjoy. It is ideal for cooks, foodies, chefs, culinary students, gardeners, vegetarians and vegans, and anyone who simply enjoys the beauty of food.”
