I was lucky enough to win a cookery book last week on twitter. Eat Your Veg, by Arthur Potts Dawson and it is such a good cookery book. I’ve spent so much time looking through it, well not just me, even my friends has been leafing through it. Yes it has fantastic photography, that makes your mouth water, but this is no coffee table book. The recipes are achievable, and do not have a ridiculous amount of ingredients either.
The main thing I have found though, is it has pushed me to try new things. Including using vegetables, that I perhaps have tried before in a restaurant but a little scared cook at home. A good example of this is celeriac.
What a strange vegetable, you can’t exactly describe it as pretty, I’ve always steered clear of it before. However I really felt I should take courage into my hands and give it a go – thanks Arthur! This is an amazing delicious recipe. In fact everyone cleared their plates, including Miss A my 3-year-old picky eater. Such a fantastic vegetarian recipe, as it’s a bit different and so full of flavour. I will definitely be cooking this regularly now.
The one thing I would say is, I think the portions are very generous. I used half of the ingredients and it was enough for 6 people, when served with a salad as suggested. However that meant leftovers….nom!
Thank you Octopus Books, this is a fantastic book championing fresh seasonal vegetables. With over 250 recipes, there really is something for all times of year. I love that these recipes are peppered with outstanding photography, but it doesn’t look too ‘cheffy’ which I always find daunting. Deliciously tempting, I’ll end with this quote.

Thank you for reading
