A successor to the previous “Love and Lemons” cookbook and a printed product of the blog by the same name by Donofrio, this design-forward book of “plant-forward” recipes brings style to the vegetarian cookbook genre. While chapters follow the usual classifications by meal—breakfast through dessert—and parts of meals, from side dishes to beverages, the design, layout, and illustrations will make this a well-used addition to the vegetarian bookshelf. Useful inclusions abound, such as charts for peak-of-season produce, preparing grains (e.g., how to freeze them) and legumes, and roasting and grilling vegetables. Illustrations are large and enticing. Since prepping produce has the downside of accumulated waste, there are recipes for often discarded parts, including carrot top chimichurri, beet green gremolata, and scrap stock. Most dishes are vegan; those with eggs, cheese, or mayonnaise merit inclusion.
VERDICT In addition to their blog followers, cooks wanting fresh vegan and vegetarian recipes with a stylish, well-designed approach will want this book.
