- rule-of-thumb buying/storing/cooking methods,
- shortcuts, and veg wisdom from over 50 of the world’s top chefs.
- Strong point: Very Educational
- ...and I thought I knew enough about veggies…but I learned so much
- After reading Basics to Brillance by Donna Hay….on black paper
- …this book is a joy to open!
- The book is 70% reading….and 30% recipes.
- Weak point: recipes lacked imagination….
- I had the feeling I’d read these cooking suggestions in other books!
- I did find some very good tips about storing veggies and herbs
- …but the recipes were a big disappointment.
- Strong point: book is a visual delight!
- Within the pages of In Praise of Veg, the recipes are refreshingly grouped
- …together according to the color of each vegetable.
- Strong point: book is about vegetables but NOT purely plant-based
- Ms Zaslavsky says: “… it is a “plant-forward” source of inspiration.”
- The premise is… “to start with veg and build a dish around it”.
