Overview

Vegetles from an Italian Garden features 400 delicious recipes showcasing over 40 different kinds of vegetles newly collected by the editors behind the classic Italian cooking bible, The Silver Spoon. Authentic and easy-to-use, the book will reveal how Italians use vegetles year-round to prepare simple yet crowd-pleasing dishes.

The book is organized by season in four color-coded sections (Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter) to help you conveniently browse for recipes by time of year. Each season is subdivided into chapters for different vegetles highlighting best-known varieties, appearance, storage and preparation and everything you need to know to maximize flavor and nutritional content. It even includes information on how to plant and harvest each vegetle in your own home garden.

Then come the recipes! Each season includes approximately 100 recipes organized further by main vegetle ingredient. For example for Spring, the book reveals how to utilize the best of the season?s bounty with main ingredients including Spinach, Swiss Chard, Wild Greens, Artichokes, Asparagus, Fava Beans, Peas, Radishes, Avocados, Onions and Belgian Endive.

Offering something for everyone, two-thirds of the recipes are vegetarian, and the remaining third feature beef, chicken, pork or fish as co-stars and are coded with unique symbols to make pleasing any dietary preference easy. As stated in the book?s introduction by the Editors, ?Italian cuisine is by no means vegetarian, but vegetles play an important and integral role to every meal.?

    Beautiful book

    This is a specially pretty cookbook and cleverly organized. Admittedly, we have cooked only a little out of it but have reviewed many of the recipes and they will work. This book will be a noteworthy Christmas gift to our daughter and a worthy addition to her collection.
