Vegeterranean: Italian Vegetarian Cookingby Malu Simoes Da Cunha
Synopses & Reviews
From the renowned kitchen of Umbrias celebrated Country House Montali comes Vegeterranean, a collection of gourmet vegetarian dishes steeped in the flavors of Italy and the Mediterranean. These recipes evoke the very essence of the regions cooking: the heavy fragrance of thyme and rosemary; the sound and smell of shimmering tomatoes; the musky aromas of cinnamon and saffron. Italian classics such as calzone, ravioli, gnocchi, and lasagna are transformed into stylish, contemporary dishes, while recipes such as Spiedini Primavera (Spring Vegetable Skewers) and Cappuccino di Asparagi (Asparagus Cappuccino) take advantage of each ingredient at its seasonal peak.
