Vegeatable Heaven. This is the place and mood I imagine, and try to create, when-ever I cook. Here there are all kinds of vegetables, bursting with flavor and prepared in sumptuous, yet uncomplicated, ways. And there are fruit, grains, beans and legumes, nuts, state-of-the-art seasonings and herbs, gifts from the earth that are so vivid, I am as moved to paint their portraits and write odes to their brilliance, as I am to just hunker down and eat them.
Vegetable Heaven is a cuisine reflecting the evolution of my own cooking over the past twenty-five years. It embraces sparkling openers and salads, colorful soups made from ordinary and unusual ingredients, spectacular pastas, pilafs, and stews, exquisite little "bites," pizzas, vegetables roasted to perfection, or seared and glazed in a hot wok, savory baked things to eat for brunch or supper, and more desserts than you'll have time even to dream about.
This cookbook takes a fresh approach to vegetarian cooking, seeking to enhance, rather than overpower, the natural taste of the ingredients. Inspired by vegetables, fruit, and herbs at the peak of their season, this food is opulent, yet clean and simple; logical, yet whimsical. Based upon taste, but also rich in visual beauty, this is the cooking I love. I am delighted to share it with you, through recipes, menus, commentary, and pictures, and to show you just how easy and accessible this can be.
