4.0 out of 5 stars Traditional recipes, organised by season, 9 Jan 2014
This review is from: The Great British Vegetable Cookbook (Hardcover)
Published by the National Trust, this is a fairly traditional set of recipes organised around British vegetables. Not all the recipes are vegetarian (fish pie, lots of things with bacon and beef), so this is more for someone looking for imaginative things to do with vegetables as ingredients and side dishes as well as main meals.

What I like about this is the way it's organised around the four seasons: even though we're used to vegetables being available all year round, it's still nice to have recipes focused on what's in season.

This stretches from the not-really-a-recipe (roast beef and watercress sandwich) to more complicated things like carrot cake, pastry, home-made breads, tempura and mayonnaise.

The tamarind chilli seared beef is delicious (perfect for January despite it being in the summer section), and there are some interesting soups (lettuce soup) and salads (crunchy cauliflower; cucumber, pear and radish; papaya, mint and watercress).

So for anyone bored of their repertoire of vegetable dishes looking for stimulation, this is good. It's probably not the most imaginative of cookbooks but is a solid addition to the kitchen shelf.
