Love vegetables? The Vegetable Butcher: How to Select, Prep, Slice, Dice and Masterfully Cook Vegetables from Artichokes to Zucchini by Cara Mangini is an essential book for vegetable lovers to have in the kitchen. This wonderful book takes the guessing out of preparing almost every vegetable. Not only does it contain recipes for favorite vegetable dishes, but also information on how to choose, store, cut, and prepare almost every vegetable anyone would want to eat. The pictures are great – and show the way to prep them; sometimes just telling through words leaves readers a bit confused and it is always better to actually see how things should be done. Everyone, from the most inexperienced to veteran chefs can learn something from this excellent book.
The book is divided by the names of the vegetables and shows how to prep each. Then it gives suggestions on serving, as well as one or a few more showstopper recipes that are elegant and unique for each vegetable. The recipes are for truly mouthwatering dishes, with a good variety: Cauliflower and Caramelized Fennel Soup, Tomato and Thyme Scones, Carrot Coconut Muffins, Kabocha Squash, Adzuki Bean, and Ginger-Coconut Curry to name a few. The recipes are set out in a concise manner and are easy to follow. Most importantly, they turn out exactly like pictured and every one so far has been delicious.
The Vegetable Butcher is not just for vegetarians; rather it's for anyone who wants to prepare vegetables. The recipes can serve as main dishes for vegetarians, but also as side dishes for carnivores.
I love this book. It is a must-have reference for every kitchen, and makes a great gift for beginning cooks to those who may be a little more experienced.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying an advanced review copy of this excellent cookbook.
