Greenfeast: Autumn, Winter

Ten Speed. Oct. 2020. 320p. ISBN 9781984858733. $26. COOKING
In this cold-weather companion to Greenfeast: Spring, Summer, Slater transports readers to a warm kitchen on a cold day, with over 100 recipes and vivid descriptions. Seasonal vegetables are the star, as well as rich, warming carbs like potatoes and mashed beans. Chapters are divided by various methods of preparation or serving of these comfort foods, including “With a crust” (pies), “With a ladle” (soups) and even “On toast.” Artful photographs accompany the recipes, and expressive brush stroke art by artist Tom Kemp bookend each chapter. While this is a vegetarian cookbook, it is not a vegan or diet cookbook, as many of the recipes feature eggs, heavy cream, and cheeses. Additionally, many recipes may take too much time for a quick weekday dinner; however, dishes such as parsnips, smoked garlic, lentils, and garam masala will reward home cooks looking to indulge.
VERDICT Readers hoping to elevate their vegetarian or plant-based diets in colder months will enjoy Slater’s comforting, yet sophisticated recipes. Pair with Greenfeast: Spring, Summer, though the book can also stand alone.
