The Book of Garnishes

June Budgen, Author, Per Ericson, Photographer HP Books $15 (128p) ISBN 978-0-89586-480-2
One of a new series that includes The Book of Appetizers, The Book of Chocolates & Petit Fours and The Book of Cocktails, this title gives instruction for most of the garnishes any cook will ever use. There are over 100 in all, including tomato roses, lemon swans, leek bows, avocado fans, bean bundles, noodle brushes and beet curls, many of which are surprisingly easy to prepare. Although Budgen discusses many ""architectural'' and vegetarian ornaments, she does not neglect other garnishes, covering, for example, croutons, candied violets, cookie cups and spun sugar and meringue mushrooms. Instructions are clearly written. Photos not seen by PW. (October)
