In Recipes from the Root Cellar you will once again learn to love winter vegetables! The author does a wonderful job in the first 40 pages of introducing you to each winter veggie! There is a short description, along with tips on selection, storage, and preparation. I learned a lot about the history of certain vegetables and truly never realized how many varieties of winter squash existed!
The recipe section is extensive! I love the author's concept of 'Eat locally, season globally"! By using local, in
season produce and pairing it with ethnic seasonings and sauces there is no end to the variety of flavors you can create! Every type of course is represented from soups and salads to vegetarian main dishes and deserts. They range in difficulty from simple stocks to french dishes I have trouble pronouncing! There is something in here for every skill level.
If I could change one thing about the cookbook it would be to add pictures. I think that the vibrant colors of the leeks and pumpkins would really stand out with glossy, full color photos!
This is a wonderful cookbook and if you want to start eating a more seasonal diet, this is a great resource for winter eating!
Disclaimer: I received one copy of this book from the publisher in order to write my review. I received no monetary compensation and all opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone!
I'd highly recommend this book to anyone looking to incorporate fresh locally grown vegetables into their diet during the winter months. These recipes left me full and satisfied (they have the wonderful feel of comfort food) during the long cold months of winter in New England.
