A worthy vege cook book,
This review is from: The Vegetarian Option (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)This book continues in the same vein as "Roast Chicken and Other Stories". It is not just a collection of recipes but more a collection of experiences which serve to inspire the reader. These experiences describe wonderful combinations and focus on pure taste and flavour rather than the more technical books of other chefs who achieve flavour through a myriad of processes and focus as much on presentation as taste. For a non vegetarian, cooking for vegetarians is not easy but this book manages to change the mindset sufficiently to make it a more natural thing and enables the same passion to be extended to all dishes not just meat dishes.
My only disappointment is in not being able to source, even in season, a number of the ingredients which sound delicious but short of actually being in the South of France I'm never going to get.
