′No other book on vegetables in my library is so beautifully written or so thought-provoking. The recipes are intriguing and original but even if you never cook a single thing out of this book (which would be a crying shame), its worth buying for Denis′s beautiful prose - you′ll never think of vegetables in the same way again.′ Darina Allen in the Irish Examiner on Wild Garlic.
These recipes are designed to complement busy modern-day life and include ideas for mid-week bowl dishes and simple snacks as well as summer barbecue recipes and mouth-watering salads and risottos.
Denis is famous for his inventive approach and this collection will inspire cooks everywhere, no matter what your taste or skill level. For the Love of Food is an essential cookbook for vegetarians but will also appeal to non-vegetarians who enjoy flavour-packed food and new combinations. Full of simple and satisfying solutions, this is a book that you will turn to everyday.
