Tra. Mar. 2024. 256p. ISBN 9780966438871. $40. COOKING
Netherlands-based food and recipe writer/stylist Philippi’s (Salad) new cookbook is organized by vegetable family and provides seasonal practicality for an abundant garden harvest or even leftover veggies in the fridge. Recipes are a mix of weeknight dishes with only a few pantry ingredients—chickpeas with spinach, for example—and sophisticated showstoppers, such as butter squash Wellington with feta, that would liven up any table. The book’s beautiful photography uses black backgrounds to shine a spotlight on the lovely styling that makes vegetables the star. The use of color to contrast the text and background provides additional visual appeal and elegance. While recipes are vegetarian, they aren’t always vegan, with plenty of dairy throughout and even a chapter on eggs. This cookbook can meet the needs of a wide range of home cooks, with a variety of flavors and recipes of varying complexity, all while being extremely easy on the eye.
VERDICT The gorgeous photography and sophisticated recipes will wow dedicated vegetarians as well as those looking for meatless options, making this a practical addition to library shelves.
