Nice creative recipes, great if you have a box scheme, allotment, garden or friend supplying you with exotic veg. Otherwise, prepare to sub-in! Pistachio and lavender brulee (easily veganised) gets 6 out of 5 stars. But the book is too wordy. I never bothered to read the 'stories' that come between recipes.
Interesting book if you like vegetables [which I do}. Author is the owner of Ireland's most famous vegetarian restaurants. He explains in detail his love of vegetables, discussing some that may be difficult to find in the US. Recipes are yummy sounding. We were fortuante to stay in Ireland with his grower, who is prominantly featured in the book - He cooked us a fantastic dinner, so we are anxious to try the receipes.
Lovely stories, complex and intricate recipes, and a good resource for any fan of vegetables!
