I recently received “The Broad Fork”, a cookbook by Hugh Acheson that primarily focuses on vegetable recipes. More importantly, vegetables that are in season at each time of the year. If you have ever gone to the grocery store and wondered what you make with the “in season” vegetables, this book is full of inspiration (also has great pictures!).
The book is set up by season (how else to know what is in season) and has a variety of recipes per vegetable. It not only covers the vegetable by itself, but also combines it with other items that you are probably more familiar with such as various proteins and other more common vegetables. These are definitely one recipe for an entire meal ideas. The other aspect of this book I enjoyed was the fact that not only does each vegetable get it’s own introduction about how it tastes, what it works with, but each recipe has its own little introduction about how the author uses or pairs the recipe with other things. So just in reading the book you can throw many things together!!
The pictures in this book are incredible. There are as many pages of pictures as pages of recipes, something I can firmly get behind. I feel like we eat with our eyes first, and my eyes are hungry browsing this book.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
