Full-color photography and remarkably easy preparation add to the appeal of the stylish informal vegetarian fare concocted by Gleeson in her cabin in the woods of California. A zippy salad of persimmon, cilantro, and pomegranate seeds might go very nicely with a hearty dish of collard greens wilted with garlic and red pepper and a bowl of cheesy wheat berries topped with caramelized onions. Gleeson’s laid-back approach makes this a great choice for folks who like to improvise in the kitchen. Ditto her recipes, which are handwritten, often right over photographs of her enticing food.
