Whether you are in search of a delicious way to make fava beans in the springtime or need a savory preparation for carrots when cold weather arrives, in these pages you'll find a recipe that brings out the best in vegetables for any occasion. A chapter of hearty main dishes will inspire you to make vegetables the star of your dinner table, while a selection of classics — including a delightfully rich potato gratin — completes the collection.
