From award-winning chef Peter Berley: mouthwatering seasonal vegetarian menus that can be created in under an hour. Sophisticated, home-cooked vegetarian meals without the fuss. Is that too much to ask? Absolutely not.

True to his roots as a restaurant chef, cooking teacher, and family man, award-winning vegetarian chef Peter Berley has a passion for meals that taste incredible, salute the seasons, and are easy to prepare in under an hour. In Fresh Food Fast, he provides forty-eight meals — twelve for each season — including recipes, a shopping list, an equipment list, and a game plan that takes you step-by-step through the menu. Included are substantial, satisfying meals that will bring pleasure to vegetarians and omnivores alike:

Spring
bibb lettuce and radish salad with creme fraiche citronette braised spring vegetables with grits, poached eggs, and chives

summer
spicy corn frittata with tomatoes and scallions cucumber salad

fall
pasta with spicy cauliflower, chickpeas, and cherry tomatoes pan-grilled radicchio salad with honey-balsamic glaze over frise

winter
balsamic-roasted seitan with cipollini onions garlic mashed potatoes and parsnips

Berley also provides delectable dessert recipes for each season, including spring's Warm Honey Lemon Curd over Strawberries, summer's Blueberry-Nectarine Crisp, fall's Roasted Grapes with Red Wine, andwinter's Caramelized Bananas with Blood Orange and Pistachio.

In a world where fast food is generally prepackaged and second-rate, Peter Berley teaches us how we can live without compromise and enjoy fresh, wholesome meals any night of the week as we connect with family and friends.

I borrowed this cookbook from the library, and it was so good that I decided to buy one for myself. I especially liked that you are given a list for what to get at the store, and the order of actions in the kitchen. The instructions were easy, and the results we delicious! Cheers for Peter Berley and Melissa Clark!
