As exuberant as Chef José Andrés himself, this is a seasonally organized guide to flavorful vegetable cooking. It’s clearly informed by the chef’s Spanish heritage, but in no way limited by it.
With so many vegetable cookbooks available, what helps this one stand out? A certain confidence with flavor, a willingness to look beyond traditional ingredient pairings, and lots of chatty advice on developing your own spin on the many recipes in this book.
Among the fresh ideas you’ll find here: miso-roasted asparagus; fennel bouillabaisse; 20-vegetable fried rice; watermelon and radish salad; persimmon, burrata, and jamón salad.
Definitely a book for cooks looking to break out of a rut.
Hardcover. Color photographs throughout.
