The Winter Vegetarian: A Warm and Versatile Bounty

The Winter Vegetarian: A Warm and Versatile Bounty - Darra Goldstein I found some of the commentary and ingredient choices a little off (she follows a paragraph about monks hiding meat under vegetables with a proclamation that we don't need to hide our vegetables anymore? And puts brined olives or shiitake mushrooms into allegedly Russian foods - as a Russian person I can assure you that those are not traditional ingredients), but most of the book was well-written, informative, and even amusing at times. Many of the recipes sound fantastically delicious, although I may tweak a few here or there. I'm planning to make two recipes very soon, and will report back (if I remember...).
