For years, Anna Thomas's fans have cooked from her trailblazing vegetarian cookbooks. Now, Anna turns her thoughts to that larger question. We are eating differently: your daughter is a vegan, or you are but your in-laws don't think it's dinner without meat, or you're hosting Thanksgiving for a mixed group... In this timely and useful new book, Anna offers her solutions for reuniting our divided tables.
"My idea is simple," says Anna. "Start with the food everyone eats, design a meal or a dish around that, then expand and elaborate with just the right amounts of the right cheeses, meats, or fish for your omnivores. Everyone feels welcome, and we eat the same meal--but in variations."
Anna shows us how to cook for today's table, with over 150 recipes for all tastes, and menus for every occasion. For a casual evening with friends, Farro with Lentils and Lavender served with Ratatouille from the Charcoal Grill makes a beautiful vegan supper--and also pairs wonderfully with garlic-and-herb rubbed lamb chops for the omnivores. Anna's crowd-pleasing Easy Fish Soup begins as a robust vegetable soup, with seafood added five minutes before serving--an ideal two-way dish. A vegetarian Lemon Risotto with Saut ed Fresh Fava Beans is perfect on its own, and can easily take on tender shrimp. For dessert, have vegan Pumpkin Gingerbread and add vanilla ice cream, or serve a delectable Dark Chocolate Almond Bark studded with ginger and dried cherries.
Anna's festive "Thanksgiving for Everyone" menu centers on a sumptuous Polenta Torta with Roasted Squash and onion marmalade, surrounded by an array of seasonal vegetables--all pairing equally well with roast turkey for the traditionalists. "Taco Night at Home" allows everyone to design their perfect meal, mixing and matching from a spread of Spicy Black Beans, Poblano Peppers with Portobello Mushrooms, Carnitas, and Guajillo Chile Salsa. Anna's exuberant Mediterranean mezze menu is a relaxed summer party, featuring vegan Roasted Eggplant and Poblano Chile Spread with flatbread, Tabbouleh with Chickpeas and Preserved Lemon, Charred Zucchini with Lemon and Mint, and Baked Lamb Kibbeh Wedges for the omnivores.
With dishes inspired by the vibrant produce of farmers' markets, Anna shares her love of cooking and of hospitality. Vegan Vegetarian Omnivore shows us how to navigate a world of change, and bring all our friends and family together at one big, generous table.
'Evergreen' symbolizes something that will last for years and never goes out of fashion. More and more people are focusing on eating green in their daily lives and Mikkel introduces vegetable recipes to inspire. What makes vegetables exciting is that they really change character and taste according to the seasons. In summer a carrot should be pulled from the ground, lightly rinsed and eaten as it is - completely spicy, tender, crisp and juicy. While in late Autumn, when it has been in the ground for a long while enduring weather and wind, and has become big, coarse but sweet in taste, it should be used in a delicious soup, pur e or baked to enhance the wonderful sweetness it has developed. Photographed by Anders Schoennemann as the seasons have move on and new vegetables become ready to harvest, the daylight changes as the long, bright summer evenings became clear autumn days. They enjoyed the most beautiful sunrises, the tranquility of frosty ice-cold mornings, and often the day's first meal was cooked over fire. Mikkel has managed to make easy, tasty and beautiful vegetable dishes that will make the most carnivorous to appreciate a green meal.
Contrary to popular belief, a pepper does not need to make your eyes water or start a fire in your mouth to qualify as a chile. Chile is simply the common name for the fruit of the capsicum plant. Chiles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and flavors.

From fiery Tex-Mex inspired meals to savory and sweet Thai, this collection of recipes are sure to make you a lover of all things chile

The Minnesota Farmers Market Cookbook is a guide to choosing, preserving, and preparing the seasonal food you find at farmers markets, plus 80 recipes from local chefs and farmers.
Bowls of heavy, red tomatoes; stacks of tender sweet corn; baskets of crisp green beans: this is what summer looks like at the farmers market. The number of farmers markets in Minnesota has more than tripled over the last decade (from 45 in 2002 to more than 150 today) as we search out the healthiest, most delicious, and most local food we can find. The trouble is, sometimes we simply don't know what to do with a heaping basket of green beans--not to mention $3 of kohlrabi. The Minnesota Farmers Market Cookbook solves that problem. It's easy to use--you can look up food by name, season, or recipe--and supremely helpful in figuring out how to choose the best produce, store it so it stays fresh as long as possible, and prepare it with simple, delectable recipes that you'll return to again and again.
More than 80 recipes collected from chefs, vendors, and foodies around the state showcase the best of seasonal cooking, from Andrew Zimmern's zuppa valdostana to Lenny Russo's grilled pork tenderloin to Atina Diffley's sesame kale. If you're not a whiz in the kitchen, don't worry--author Tricia Cornell explains basic cooking techniques and offers timesaving tips for busy folks who want to eat right. Maps and a complete market directory benefit explorers and rookies alike: if you don't know where your nearest market is, or you know it so well you're craving a change of scenery, take a look inside.
