The book introduces new pantry "staples" like Christine's "Garbage Salts" (dried veggies, root and salt combos) that can bring zing to so many dishes. ( I can't wait to begin my own stockpile)
Christine's talent is clearly a labor of love, trial and error- and she has devoted a ton of time and effort over many years (and across a couple of continents) to arrive at "Green Plate Special". The result is spectacular.
But, as a cookbook is about cooking --an important test is the success of the recipes. I waited to write my review because I wanted to see how the recipes stood up to my garden and local farm produce. I was NOT disappointed. I could write great reviews about so many recipes, but one really stood out for its simplicity and use of produce that I otherwise compost or throw away. It's the carrot top salsa verde recipe. It takes minutes to make, tastes amazing on chicken, fish, roasted cauliflower and root veggies. And I got the immediate satisfaction that I was using something that I watched grow in my garden, which in years' past I composted or tossed.
The book is beautiful, well written, thoughtful and praises the little steps that we can all take to reduce our impact on the environment without making wholesale changes to our routines and wallets. I highly recommend it
I was given this book by my daughter, who had a copy and loved the book. This is a realistic approach to eating healthier. No far-out overhaul of your eating habits, but rather a balanced approach to eating better and helping our environment by reducing our need for prepackaged goods. Christine lists sensible ways to achieve this goal. You will not turn your eating habits upside down, but rather channel them into new, exciting ways.
Each recipe is accompanied by beautiful, mouth-watering photographs. The recipes themselves are easy to follow, generally include items we all have in our fridge or pantry, and are yummy. For me, I am slowly trying to incorporate her suggestions. This is a great book and deserves a spot on anyone’s cookbook shelf.
