Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Some of the most creative new minds in the kitchen and the most exhilarating new voices in food writing come from the world of blogs. Michael Natkin, creator of the wildly popular Herbivoracious.com, indisputably fits both of those descriptions. In Herbivoracious: A Vegetarian Cookbook for People Who Love to Eat, Natkin offers up 150 exciting recipes (most of which have not appeared on his blog) notable both for their big, bold, bright flavors and for their beautiful looks on the plate, the latter apparent in more than 80 four-color photos that grace the book. This is sophisticated, grown-up meatless cooking, the kind you can serve to company—even when your guests are dedicated meat-eaters.
 
An indefatigable explorer of global cuisines, with particular interests in the Mediterranean and the Middle East and in East and Southeast Asia, Natkin has crafted, through years of experimenting in his kitchen and in loads of intensive give-and-take with his blog readers, dishes that truly are revelations in taste, texture, aroma, and presentation. A third of the book is taken up with hearty main courses, ranging from a robust Caribbean Lentil-Stuffed Flatbread across the Atlantic to a comforting Sicilian Spaghetti with Pan-Roasted Cauliflower and around the Cape of Good Hope to a delectable Sichuan Dry-Fried Green Beans and Tofu. An abundance of soups, salads, sauces and condiments, sides, appetizers and small plates, desserts, and breakfasts round out the recipes.
 
Natkin, a vegetarian himself, provides lots of advice on how to craft vegetarian meals that amply deliver protein and other nutrients, and the imaginative menus he presents deliver balanced and complementary flavors, in surprising and utterly pleasing ways. The many dozens of vegan and gluten-free recipes are clearly noted, too, and an introductory chapter lays out the simple steps readers can take to outfit a globally inspired pantry of seasonings and sauces that make meatless food come alive.

Review:

"At first it feels like we've seen Michael Natkin before: author of a popular food blog with a tread-lightly, Earth-friendly attitude toward eating. But then Natkin busts out recipes for Ethiopian ful medames (fava bean stew) and apio (lemony celery root), and we know these are not the same old tried and true vegetarian recipes. As a result of his global approach, some recipes call on unusual ingredients like tamarind, but an equal number take supermarket staples, like coconut milk, and turn them into something you most likely haven't tried, such as a recipe for creamy, spicy Jamaican rice and peas. While the something-for-everyone approach can be overwhelming, both vegetarians and carnivores will appreciate his extensive chapter on side dishes. Asparagus with nori butter combines miso and mirin with seaweed to produce a flavorful, salty-sweet dish that could just as easily be paired with his recipe for soba noodles in shiitake shoyu broth with spring vegetables as with simple grilled fish. Both bored vegetarians and conscientious carnivores will appreciate this excellent collection. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
