'In this exciting and inspiring new book, the vegetable is king. But this is not simply a book for vegetarians, as the recipes have enough flavour, balance and even dose of decadence to keep meat-eaters interested and fulfilled too.' BBC Good Food Magazine 'Bag a copy of Maria Elia's 'The Modern Vegetarian' which has more than 120 recipes to wake up your palate.' The Times 'The menu is that ubiquitous modern English that has colonised every dining room East of Tottenham Court Road: short and well made, and austere with treats...we were happy with the food.'

From the Publisher
This debut book from Anglo-Greek chef Maria Elia finally gives vegetarian food the treatment it deserves. Gone are the uninspiring dishes served up time and again, these new dishes are full of sensational flavors, colors, and textures that showcase the astounding versatility of vegetables. Vegetables are the heroes of THE MODERN VEGETARIAN, from Chilli-roasted Feta and Watermelon to Artichoke and Goat Cheese Ravioli (using wanton wrappers), Maria's recipes combine her grasp of world flavors with her ingenuity in the kitchen. The seasonality of ingredients is key to her dishes, making them not only taste better but cheaper to make and more nutritious. If a fruit or vegetable is out of season she shows how easy it is to adapt and improvise. Dishes such as Roquefort and Fig Crème Brulee can just as easily be made with grapes or sautéed leeks, while Mushroom, Beet, Mozzarella with a Lentil Cartouch also works well with asparagus or as a salad. With stunning photography from Jonathan Gregson, THE MODERN VEGETARIAN is the perfect contemporary cookbook that will appeal to vegetarians, carnivores, and pescetarians alike.
