Mr. Carluccio offers over 200 recipes in over 40 vegetable categories. Each chapter spotlights a specific vegetable with information on it's history, what to look for when buying, storing and preserving the vegetable. The rest of the chapter includes choices of the best recipes for each, all characteristic of the Carluccio style. For the often ignored beet alone, there are recipes for Beetroot Salad, Beetroot with Bagna Cauda, Beets With Parmesan And Butter, Beetroot Soup,
and more.
Delicious color photographs of many of the dishes are sprinkled throughout the book, which can't help but inspire you to rush into your kitchen and try a few of these recipes. I often grab this book off my shelf when I'm looking for inspiration for another vegetable side dish, or light lunch entree.
I like that the recipes follow the tradional Italian ideals of simplicity, enhancing and not overpowering the natural flavor of the vegetables.

Antonio Carluccio brings you the best of traditional and contemporary Italian vegetable dishes, and presents it in a book so attractive you'll want to leave it on your coffee table!

This is one of the best cookbooks I've seen. And I'm a professional chef. Too bad it's out of print -- if you see a reasonably-priced secondhand copy, GRAB IT!

Despite most or all of what is written about it, this is not a vegetarian cookbook. Almost every recipe calls for meat, and in most of them it does not look like the meat can just be omitted without vitiating the recipe.
