Creative recipes for eating deliciously - season by season

Whether you enjoy your vegan meals simple or sophisticated, you'll find them in The Blooming Platter Cookbook. A celebration of the seasons, this book features a wide range of accessible, elegant recipes for the home cook, ranging from easy homestyle dishes to creative upscale meals you'll be proud to serve to your guests. Healthy and nutritious, Betsy DiJulio's dazzling recipes are at once luxurious, yet down to earth and simple to prepare.

Organized by season, these lush, innovative recipes showcase the taste, beauty, and nutrition of what's fresh all year 'round: the tender young asparagus of spring; the plump juicy berries of summer; the crisp tart apples of fall; and the comforting root vegetables of winter. Spanning regional American favorites and global cuisines, these tempting recipes feature all the essential goodness that fresh vegetables, fruits, and herbs bring to your table. The mouthwatering recipes include:

Golden Caponata
Southwestern Tempeh and Corn Pie
Blooming Vegetable Calzones
Spicy Baja Tacos
Blueberry and Lemon Verbena Pancakes
Cherry-Almond Clafouti Cake

The Blooming Platter Cookbook includes recipes for appetizers, soups, sandwiches, salads, main dishes, desserts, and brunch. The recipes are divided by season within each chapter, and the book's recipe variations and menu suggestions will help you apply your own creativity in the kitchen. In addition to seasonal icons and helpful tips, the book features 8 pages of full-color photos.
