Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback for the first time, stylish, seasonal menus to satisfy vegetarians and nonvegetarians simultaneously, by a winner of the James Beard Award and the IACP Award.

Today, more people than ever before are choosing to eat sustainably, electing to have vegetarian meals much of the time but sometimes small amounts of fish, chicken, and, more rarely, red meat. Theyre known as “flexitarians,” a combination of the words “flexible” and “vegetarian.” 

The Flexitarian Table is full of exciting menus guaranteed to please them—and everyone else at the table—without stressing out the cook. Drawing from decades of experience as a personal chef and caterer, Peter Berley provides lots of “convertible” meals featuring vegetable and meat versions of the same dish that can be prepared simultaneously without extra trouble, like Crispy Pressed Tofu or Chicken with Garlic and Mint. Others are hearty vegetarian dishes that ensure no one will miss meat, such as Saffron Lasagna with Vegetables and Gruyère. Meals centering around fish or chicken come with vegetable sides that double as mains. An extra bonus of this inclusive book: All of the 150 dishes can be mixed and matched.

Synopsis:

Peter Berley's inspired menus in The Flexitarian Table teach you how to accommodate different tastes and dietary choices.

Synopsis:

Today a single family can include staunch vegetarians as well as passionate meat lovers. When company shows up, the situation gets even more complicated. How can you satisfy them all without making two (or three) completely different meals?

In The Flexitarian Table, the award-winning author Peter Berley presents menus that are flexible, exciting, relaxing to prepare — and that make everyone feel welcome. With The Flexitarian Table, you'll no longer treat vegetarians as afterthoughts by offering them a couple of scanty side dishes, and you'll be able to indulge meat eaters at the same time with abundant, satisfying dishes.

You'll learn how to prepare vegetarian and meat versions simultaneously without going to any extra trouble. Roast a succulent, crisp chicken with lemon and thyme — and make a tofu version in just minutes. Put some meaty portobello mushroom caps on the grill and, for the carnivore contingent, throw on a steak, then pair them both with a zesty bread crumb salsa. Simmer white beans with carrot and celery and sautand#233; some shrimp, drizzling each with the same rich brown butter sauce with fresh herbs.

You'll find many sumptuous vegetarian dishes as well, including cannelloni with ricotta, Parmesan, and mint or a hearty lasagna with roasted fall vegetables in a sage-scented cheese sauce. Or serve up a selection of easy little dishes and let your guests choose.

You'll get plenty of ideas for get-dinner-quick meals such as winter tomato soup with goat cheese crostini and Spanish-style fried eggs, and for luxurious weekend fare try cumin-spiced lamb croquettes and falafel, served with two traditional Middle Eastern sauces and whole wheat pita bread.

The Flexitarian Table also shows you how to cook with the seasons so you get the most flavor from your ingredients while you enjoy varied, sustainable meals year-round.
