Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

‘For the Love of Food, is full of colour, flavour and nutritional goodness, making his recipes ideal for committed vegetarians celebrating National Vegetarian Week and for those simply wanting ideas for Meat Free Mondays…His approach is a year-round celebration of vibrant, seasonal and fresh produce, based on the philosophy that our meals should not only be healthy and delicious, but cooked with love and appreciation.’ – Top Sante

“The latest book from the owner of Café Paradiso in Cork has lots of inventive recipes that will also appeal to the non-vegetarians who want to try some new combinations of flavours.” The Independent (One of the Top 50 Cook Books)

Reviews for Wild Garlic;

‘Not only the most gorgeous book title of the year, but also the most stylishly produced volume, and it’s a cracking read too.’ The Irish Times

‘A cookbook to lust after.’ Image Magazine

‘Vegetarian cookery with delicious style.’ BBC Good Food Magazine, January 08

‘Whether you get a veg box every week or shop at your local supermarket, you can't fail to have noticed that the variety of veg on offer has increased markedly over the last couple of years. This is exactly the kind of book you need to make the most of them. Denis Cotter, owner of Café Paradiso in Cork, Eire, has a way with veg, and his passion for them really comes through. Celeriac fritters with caper and rosemary aioli were earthy and sweet and the aubergine and cime di rape (turnip tops) with chillies, feta, citrus and pomegranate is packed with flavour, with none of the gloom associated with salad in winter. We guarantee you won't even notice the lack of meat.’ Book of the Month, Olive Magazine
