Fantastic cookbook centered around strictly vegetables prepared in the Northern Italian style. I love Italian cooking, and constantly look for ways to fix vegetables more and more in a way my family will enjoy and return for seconds. This book looks like a winner!! Each vegetable has its own section with a description, time of year it is harvested, best ways to prepare, other vegetables it goes well with an cooking times and multiple recipes. I can't wait to start cooking!!
I received a digital copy of this book from Open Road Integrated Media to read and review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I have a kitchen full of cookbooks, but am always on the lookout
I have a kitchen full of cookbooks, but am always on the lookout for ideas for side dishes and veggie main courses. This little book, filled with fast and inexpensive recipes that don't require a huge pantry for additional ingredients, exceeded my expectations. The recipes are organized by vegetable main ingredient, and although a few are substantial, most are light and lovely. Each veg has a brief introduction that explains when to purchase, what to look for, cooking times and methods Nothing in the fridge but carrots? No prob--sautéed, mashed, fried or made into a simple salad, and all versions were delicious. How about a broccoli salad not weighed down with mayo and bacon, but herbed and lightly dressed? Or celery blanched and sautéed--it was delicious. Easy to read, well written recipes. Love this book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
