Format: Hardcover
Vegetronic by Michelin-starred Alexis Gauthier seeks to change the traditional equilibrium between meat and veg. Gauthier is not a vegetarian, and this book is not aimed at veggies; it is a celebration of the fruits of the earth and how clever combinations can inverse the old school meat with a side of veg culture.

Gauthier had a classical training, working for the like of Alain Ducasse, but he has become somewhat of a revolutionary making brave and eye brow raising decisions (printing the calories on his Michelin-starred menu). Whilst the catalyst for Gauthier's veg revolution was the shocking (although somewhat inevitable given the tonnes of foie gras he has tested) discovery that he had a dangerously fatty liver, his writing betrays a passion for fruits and vegetables deeply rooted in his idyllic childhood in southern France filled with: apricots, cherries, Herbs and flowers from his Grandmother and fruit from Uncle Henry (and occasionally a grumpy farmer).

The book is split into Juices, Flowers & Herbs, Vegetables and Fruits. The recipes are easy to follow and each comes with the calorific content, prep time and a complexity rating: easy, medium or hard. Gauthier is passionate about using ingredients in season; his enthusiastic writing reminds you each season yields its own bounty to be celebrated. He also explains the nutritional benefits and how to select and coax your harvest to perfection. Each dish is accompanied by a gallery-worthy inventive photograph that pops off the page.

The recipes start with meat and fish Jus and Broth used to enhance the flavour, they are easy to make and can be frozen.

A preview copy of the book never got sent to me, and now a year later I hold in my hands a copy of a book I would been half tempted to tell people to avoid at the time.

The recipes are generally as good as you might expect but the book itself is marred by a truly awful choice of colouring/design. It's an 'unfriendly' book to read and inconsistent with its tone - one moment assuming you know when the chlorophyll has stabilised and in another assuming that the reader doesn't know what panko is.

At first glance you would think it was a recipe book from the 90's or very early 00's - or something a child played around with on a DTP/paint program. I dislike everything looking the same as much as the next person but, when it gets in the way of the message, and spoils the usability and enjoyment perhaps someone should have stepped in and said something at the publishing house

3 stars for the content
1 (or zero) for the design

I have eaten at Gauthier Soho and enjoyed it. I expected this book on vegetables to have the same flair and innovation but it did not. I think the layout and design of the book did not help. It was garish and unfriendly to read. I have tried several of the recipes and not been imporessed so far, but I will persevere in hope.

I bought this book because I have a few friends who are vegetarian and I am trying to eat less meat but don't want to give it up completely. This is an excellent book.

Format: Hardcover
Here is a timely cookery book that I reckon should be first in line on your cookery book shelf: a passionate emporium for vegetables, written by a chef who not only celebrates the glory of the potager, but almost reverentially coaxes the blossoming of each fruit or vegetable in the pan, even when bought mistakenly picked unripe from the tree or pulled from the ground too early or too late. Alexis Gauthier's affection for everything that the ground bestows is infectious and you get the feeling he didn't want to leave anything beautiful or delicious out, so this book is a veritable tome - a Big and Generous (in the greater sense) present for oneself or deserving others.

There are three distinct qualities of this book that I believe surpass the myriad of choice out there on the cookery bookseller's shelves: first, the recipes are extremely clear and simple to follow; second, they are graded according to ease of making and third, the photographs are inventive, fun and extremely salivating.

It is clear from the first page that Alexis Gauthier is determined to get us to revel in vegetables being seen as the main component of any meal, with or without meat or fish accompaniment. And this for me is the key. You arrive home from the market with a head of broccoli, so green, so crisp, so bursting with life that you want to give it a name and invite it to lunch and Vegetronic tells you how to place it right at the centre of your table cooked with coarse grain mustard. Jolly delicious it is too. This seems to be a book for vegetarians, pescetarians and carnivores alike, all of us in fact, who want to experiment in putting a vegetable of their choice right at the heart of an evening.

As soon as I opened the book, the pictures just came out at me, totally different from the standard cookery book layout. The receipes are easy to follow and delicious. My kids love them - particulaly the Cauliflower gratin and the hot summer white coco bean soup. I also thought it was nice to get an incite into the chef's career path and how his love of cooking developed. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to try a more veggie style of cooking using unusual ingredients. Great book!
