Recipes From A Girl And Her Greens

From the chef, restaurant owner and author of the critically lauded A Girl and Her Pig (2012 Harper Collins Canada) comes a beautiful, full-colour cookbook that offers tantalizing seasonal recipes for a wide variety of vegetables, from summer standbys like asparagus to earthy novelties like sunchokes. A Girl and Her Greens (2015 Harper Collins Canada) reflects the lighter side of April Bloomfield, whose name is nearly synonymous with nose-to-tail eating. In recipes such as snap pea salad and pasta with asparagus, Bloomfield demonstrates the basic principle of her method: that unforgettable food comes out of simple, honest ingredients, an attention to detail and a love for the sensual pleasures of cooking and eating.
