Thursday Book Report: The Deerholme Vegetable Cookbook

I don’t really have a problem with eating vegetables, but I am always interested in more ways to make tasty food.  The Deerholme Vegetable Cookbook by Bill Jones makes vegetables look even better.  The recipes all look delicious.  I was particularly impressed with the informational sections about various veggies, their names, family histories, general nutrient content, and usual preparations.  There are also tips about varieties to grow at home, although those are somewhat skewed toward what will grow in Vancouver, where the Deerholme farm and restaurant are.

Whether you are interested in eating entirely vegetarian or in finding better sides to go with your meaty fare, there are lots of options here, including a whole bunch of pickles and preserves.  The photos are also lovely and nourishing to the eyes.
