A Cookbook for Veggie-Lovers
V Street: 100 Globe-Hopping Plates on the Cutting Edge of Vegetable Cooking
Sure, we’re a state of healthy eaters, restaurants and chefs, but I was still jealous when my sister started raving nonstop about Vedge, her favorite vegetarian eatery in Philly. Lucky for veggie lovers everywhere, the restaurant’s owners have come out with a new cookbook, and it turns out my sister is spot-on.
V Street: 100 Globe-Hopping Plates on the Cutting Edge of Vegetable Cooking by Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby (Morrow Cookbooks, $28) is a unique, innovative collection of ethnic vegetarian street food, including Indian, Mexican, Korean, Japanese, Vietnamese, Caribbean and Middle Eastern recipes that have no need for meat. The accompanying photographs are as stunning and mouthwatering as the dishes themselves.
