Featured Recipes from "The Flexitarian Table"
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. It's the rare cookbook that encourages the reader not just to cook differently but to think differently about food. In this stylish collection of recipes, Berley (The Modern Vegetarian Kitchen) introduces a practical approach to flexitarian—or part-time vegetarian—eating. Given the confusion most of us face when it comes to our diets, flexitarianism, with its healthful emphasis on grains, lean proteins and beans, is an appealing one. He has developed a series of "convertible" recipes, main courses that work equally well meatless or meat-full. There's delicate choice of Baked Fish or Ricotta Dumplings, either of which is served over French Lentils; a hearty Gratin of Cherry Tomatoes and White Beans can be served with sardines. Throw in two or three side dishes like a salad of Mâche, Pea Shoots with Baby Beets, or Soba with Garlicky Spinach and Sesame Oil, and it becomes a satisfying meal in which no one feels shortchanged. Organized by season, the menus are cross-cultural and appealing. The recipes, while sophisticated, require only moderate experience in the kitchen. Berley's savvy tips on technique and flavor-pairing make this an affable and informative guide for any chef—regardless of diet affiliation. (June)

The other great thing about it is that it's organized seasonally, and as I am making an ever more conscious effort to eat seasonally and locally, this is a great guide. His focus is on simple, fresh ingredients - no recipes are overly complicated, although some require a lot of effort, as in making your own pasta. As a passionate home cook, but one who has limited time like the rest of us, I think there is a great bland of more time-intensive recipes and recipes you could whip up one night after work.
I love the author's food philosophy and approach to cooking - this is a great book to just sit down and read cover to cover, and I can't wait to get in the kitchen and try out the recipes!
