Arthur Potts Dawson is an engaging champion of vegetables and has produced a good, usable cookbook with plenty of ideas and inspiration about using vegetables in cooking. Recommended.
Clearly written by chef with passion but who is also completely down to earth, it is chock full of recipes that sound completely doable and reasonable but also delectable and indulgent!
As a previous reviewer noted, many of the recipes are a bit involved for an average weeknight, but they're still very reasonable - nothing crazy, madly expensive, or hard to find/get. I loved that there numerous recipes for things like celeriac, endives, ramps, radishes - all the kinds of healthy, colorful, high-potential vegetables that show up in abundance in summer CSA boxes that most people either have no idea what to do with or only have 1 recipe for. :)
I also second the previous reviewer's note about there being great recipes that are not vegetarian, but use veggies in a big way. If you're looking to increase your veggie intake but don't quite feel like a meal is complete with a primary protein, this will give you a world of fantastic options. I expect to spend the summer cooking it through it and will be highly recommending it to others!
