Description: A landmark in New Haven, Connecticut, Claire's Corner Copia opened in 1975, when many thought vegetarian restaurants were just a fad. Claire's luscious homemade soups, savory sauces, melt-in-your mouth baked goods, and exceptional ethnic dishes soon had people talking and eating regularly at her friendly, family-run restaurant.Now devotees of delectable, healthful vegetarian cuisine can delight family and friends with recipes straight from Claire's kitchen, where the emphasis is on whole grains, fresh produce, and the bounty of the season. The first asparagus in spring becomes part of a delicate frittata. Locally grown tomatoes are transformed into flavorful panzanella, sauces, and salads. Bunches of summer basil make aromatic pestos. Sweet berries fill muffins and cobblers. And cold weather means a menu that includes acorn squash stuffed with savory fillings, roasted sweet potatoes with chick peas, and sweet golden-glazed fall vegetables.
Claire's favorite recipes for hearty breakfasts, soup and salad lunches, and magnificently versatile dinners fill this volume with everyday and special-occasion treats. Claire's cookbook, like the menu at her restaurant, is wonderfully flexible, with delicious low-fat, low-cholesterol meals to satisfy all kinds of people with all kinds of tastes.
