The Drunken Botanist by Amy Stewart

With the rise of urban micro-framers and drink mixologists, best-selling author Amy Stewart hits the mark as she focuses on the long seeded connection between plants and alcohol.

This hybrid guide to horticulture and cocktails discusses everything from chemistry and etymology to drink recipes and gardening tips.

Cooked by Michael Pollan

Come on, it's Michael Pollan. The best-selling author of The Omnivore's Dilemma, The Botany of Desire, In Defense of Food, and Second Nature returns with an in-depth look at the four elements - earth, fire, water, air - in the kitchen.

"A natural history of transformation," this book, like Pollan's others, will no doubt change the way we look at food.
