Mr Wilkinson's Favourite Vegetables

Today too many of us let vegetables play second fiddle in our meals, planning them around the protein and carbohydrate components. For chef Matt Wilkinson, vegetables come first. Whether he's cooking in the kitchen of his Melbourne eateries or for his family at home, Matt plans and builds his dishes around the vegetables in season, when they'll taste the best, be affordable and most readily available. This beautifully illustrated book, which includes tips on how to get the best out of your own vegetable garden, will appeal to vegetarians but it's not a vegetarian cookbook. Among more than 80 recipes, there are plenty of dishes incorporating meat but Mr Wilkinson's favourite vegetables are the true stars.

Yorkshire-born, Melbourne-based chef Matt Wilkinson is passionate about food in season, farmers' markets and local producers. He owns and runs Pope Joan in Melbourne's inner north, which has a cult following for its fresh, seasonal breakfast, brunch and lunch dishes.

    Mr. Wilkinson’s Vegetables
    I loved the cover, title and I am a veggie lover, this book is for me!
    The pictures are mouthwateringly beautiful. The descriptions of the
    foods, recipes and spices are sensual. The recipes themselves are
    fantastically ….”veggigasmic” I am in awe and slightly intimidated.
    Sheesh. What to try first....
    Each section has a vegetable as it’s star, first up: Asparagus
    You get a description of the name, origin, native of, when to pick &
    plant, how to prepare, wonderful information you might never know.
    Just listen to the recipe names …Blanched white asparagus with
    ricotta & Belgian endive… A salad of raw asparagus, skordalia
    prosciutto & dukka. And so on and so on…
    recipes that blew my mind…roasted brussel sprouts with vanilla-confit
    chestnuts and thyme, say what?
    How about Sauteed Tuscan cabbage & Matsutake mushroom pasta!
    Or, baked long green peppers with couscous & currants…yum.
    Try this one.. salad of cauliflower, smoked salmon and strawberry..?!?
    Or, frozen vanilla syrup-coated fennel….huh? Or, horseradish wafers!
    How about rose-geranium-stewed blueberries with creamed rice pudding!
    Try; nettle & crab ravioli with swiss chard & glasswort, I am swooning…:)
    Parsnip chippies you say? Shepherd’s pie croquettes? Tomato kasundi?
    Or, salted & lemoned raw zucchini, fromage blanc & grated almond…sigh.
    Do you “taste” what I mean? Pairing foods that seem not to go together…
    Mr. Wilkinson has a Mrs. And she has a recipe as well, The Mrs. Swiss
    Chard & feta pie, simply scrumptious! There is also an index in the back.
    I have already tried the “foil roasted big beets with ricotta and mint” I think I cried a little with joy at the first bite. I am so tickled to try the pickled asparagus! I have the ingredients to try “crushed fava bean & lentils with goat cheese & pear” and “grated carrot , preserved lemon, raisin & ginger pickle’ and I am going to have this delightful “pickle” with a wedge of brie just like my new favorite Veggie man, Mr. Wilkinson says to do!
    As you can tell I am just thrilled with Mr. Wilkinson’s Vegetables, do yourself a culinary favor and get this book!
