Vegetarian cooking expert Madison (Vegetable Literacy) pairs updated classics from her decadeslong career with new favorites from her home kitchen. Simple recipes, many of them vegan or gluten-free, are ordered alphabetically by ingredient or dish (e.g., beans, broccoli, cheese souffle, pasta) and include such delights as a roasted Jerusalem artichoke soup with sunflower sprouts and seeds, potato and green chile stew, and sweet potato (or pumpkin) pudding with silky persimmon puree. There are wonderful sauces, spreads, and compound butters to spice up crudités and starters, and elegant fruit desserts that won't leave diners feeling overfull. Madison's clear instructions almost always include presentation tips—home cooks will be able to produce dishes that look as stunning on the table as they do on the page.
VERDICT This highly recommended, beautifully understated cookbook makes it easy to show off the bounty of a garden or farmers market.
