An A-to-Z veggie primer, where the craft of butchery meets the pleasure of garden-fresh vegetables. A beautiful and practical book, packed with how-to prep info (and step-by-step photos) and more than 100 modern, exciting recipes featuring vegetables at the center of the plate. Winner of an IACP Award and a James Beard Award finalist.
CARA MANGINI, who comes from a family of traditional butchers, was one of the first official “vegetable butchers” at Eataly in New York City.
