"Anna Jones's simple vegetable recipes are easy enough to make on a Monday but flavorful enough to impress on a Friday. Her approach to recipe writing is informal and informative in an oh-so-British sort of way, not bogged down with hipness but brimming with cloud-like deliciousness. Jones has a clear singular voice executed with the precision of a pro in this cogent tome that will spend much more time on my kitchen counter than on my bookshelf."
- Mario Batali

Jones's writing and beautiful pictures (she's Jaime Oliver's food stylist, so the pictures here are practically pornographic) make fruits and vegetables seem like haute cuisine, and yet there aren't crazy "gourmet" instructions. None of the recipes I've tried so far took more than 20 minutes and two pans to cook. Win-win in my book. This book has really motivated me to try a lot of different foods I would have been afraid to try in the past, and most of them just make enough for two people. That means that if I don't like it, I haven't spent tons of money on "weird" ingredients only to find out that I'm just not into it.
Possibly useful information for people:
* She isn't preachy about vegetarianism, veganism, etc. She won't make you feel bad if you love to chow down on meats (or dairy). She really just seems to want to inspire people to love their fruits and veggies.
* She includes directions on making the recipes appropriate for you if you are vegan, and gluten-free if you have celiac's.
* She does include alternatives to some of the stranger ingredients if you aren't feeling super brave. Some of the ingredients have not been at my local grocery store, but I've yet to run into anything that wasn't available on Amazon Prime. Most of it hasn't even been that expensive, surprisingly.
* The chapters are set up moving from simple to more complicated, which is awesome. Nobody wants to do the super fancy their first time using fancy ingredients. Get started on the simple ones trying new ingredients, then move on.
The book Is well organized and easy to understand.
