Ignore the toe-curling puns to enjoy beautifully presented, delicious food
on 13 June 2016
Kudos to Terre a Terre for bringing a long overdue touch of high-end cheffery to vegan/vegetarian foods. This stylish vegetarian food porn shows that there's really no excuse for meat-free food to be poorly presented or bland. Desserts, in particular, are quite spectacular.
Having experienced TaT's restaurant a few times, I was really excited to read the recipes behind the dishes and they mostly don't disappoint**. It's not an everyday cookbook - but is brilliant for ideas & recipes for special occasions. Some kitchen confidence and know-how are required. Recipes often require a fair amount of advance prep work, or use a lot of ingredients. It's not really a beginner's book - but more adventurous cooks should find lots to savour. If nothing else, it should make you appreciate the effort that goes into producing quality restaurant food every day!
**Apart from the use of Parmesan with no clear mention of the need to use vegetarian alternatives.
