Cooks across Italy have been making vegetarian dishes for centuries. Full of the exhaustive research and bona fides that readers worldwide have come to expect from Slow Food, Vegetariano collects over 400 of the best vegetarian (and frequently vegan) recipes from home cooks in every region of Italy--all approachable, cookable, and full of the rustic Italian spirit of abbondanza and gracious hospitality. Befitting recipes handed down through families, most feature their original preparations and ingredients, rather than being reengineered as vegetarian by modern chefs. Local knowledge and experience are highlighted, showcasing the generations of respect Italian cooks have lavished on their verdure. Sustainability, versatility, and a frugal cook's lack of waste all characterize the recipes meticulously researched by Slow Food. Organized by course, these 400-plus recipes are perfect for family meals and celebratory feasts alike, and each features charming cultural details and culinary customs not found in chef-driven books.
--Epicurious "Never before have I seen so many fascinating, delicious, easy recipes in one book. . . . Six Seasons is] about as close to a perfect cookbook as I have seen . . . a book beginner and seasoned cooks alike will reach for repeatedly."
--Lucky Peach Joshua McFadden, chef and owner of renowned trattoria Ava Gene's in Portland, Oregon, is a vegetable whisperer. After years racking up culinary cred at New York City restaurants like Lupa, Momofuku, and Blue Hill, he managed the trailblazing Four Season Farm in coastal Maine, where he developed an appreciation for every part of the plant and learned to coax the best from vegetables at each stage of their lives. In Six Seasons, his first book, McFadden channels both farmer and chef, highlighting the evolving attributes of vegetables throughout their growing seasons--an arc from spring to early summer to midsummer to the bursting harvest of late summer, then ebbing into autumn and, finally, the earthy, mellow sweetness of winter. Each chapter begins with recipes featuring raw vegetables at the start of their season. As weeks progress, McFadden turns up the heat--grilling and steaming, then moving on to saut s, pan roasts, braises, and stews. His ingenuity is on display in 225 revelatory recipes that celebrate flavor at its peak.
