The art of simple food II

Alice Waters

Book - 2013

For supporters of all ages of the sustainable food movement, here is a cookbook that centers on the author's plant-forward way of cooking and puts forth her passion for seasonality and celebrating all vegetables. She is the leader of the local, sustainable food movement. Her previous cookbook of the same title was steeped in general cooking technique; this new version brings vegetable-forward meals to the table. With 300 seasonal recipes and 300 line drawings, this follow-up encompasses the... author-chef's vision for eating what grows in our Earth, all year long. This book is for her longtime fans plus the new generation of home cooks who care deeply about the source of their food and who so admire her efforts in the food movement. It is a must-read for home cooks who shop at farmer's markets and supermarket perimeters, and who belong to CSAs, as she guides you on how to choose the best ingredients. And it is of special interest to those who grow their own food in their kitchens, backyards, or community gardens because gardening information is included. Here she teaches how to bring the most flavor and versatility to the plants, using familiar and new ingredients. With this book, she empowers you to nourish yourself for a more responsible and rewarding life in the kitchen and at the table. -- Provided by publisher.
