From chef-owner of the popular all-vegetable New York City restaurant, Dirt Candy, a cookbook of nearly 100 vegetable recipes for home cooks everywhere.

Amanda Cohen does not play by the rules. Her vegetable recipes are sophisticated and daring, beloved by omnivore, vegetarian, and vegan diners alike. Dirt Candy: A Cookbook shares the secrets to making her flavorful dishes—from indulgent Stone-Ground Grits with Pickled Shiitakes and Tempura Poached Egg, to hearty Smoked Cauliflower and Waffles with Horseradish Cream Sauce, to playfully addictive Popcorn Pudding with Caramel Popcorn. It also details Amanda’s crazy story of building a restaurant from the ground up to its success, becoming one of the most popular restaurants in New York City—all illustrated as a brilliant graphic novel. Both a great read and a source of kitchen inspiration, Dirt Candy: A Cookbook is a must-have for any home cook looking to push the boundaries of vegetable cooking.

This is a comic book and the comics don't open large enough to read the bubbles. Buy this one in paper.

This is an inventive and enjoyable cookbook. Some recipes are super easy - try the hush puppies right away, they're delish! - while others are more involved. But if you pace yourself the outcomes are well worth it. I really enjoy reading this book as opposed to just perusing recipes. Also, it was very insightful with regards to trying to open a restaurant. I'm extremely happy with this addition to my cookbook collection!
