Vedge 100 Plates Large and Small That Redefine Vegetable CookingBy Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby
The most exciting vegetable cooking in the US is happening at Vedge, where in an elegant nineteenth-century townhouse in Philadelphia, chef-proprietors Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby serve exceptionally flavourful fare that is wowing vegans, vegetarians, and carnivores alike. Now, Landau and Jacoby share their passion for ingenious vegetable cooking. The more than 100 recipes here--such as Fingerling Potatoes with Creamy Worcestershire Sauce, Pho with Roasted Butternut Squash, Seared French Beans with Caper Bagna Cauda, and Eggplant Braciole--explode with flavour but are surprisingly straightforward to prepare. At dessert, fruit takes centre stage in dishes like Blueberries with Pie Crust and Lemonade Ice Cream--but vegetables can still steal the show, like in the Beetroot Pots de Creme.
