Vegetronic: Extreme Vegetable Cooking

By Alexis Gauthier

What is “vegetronic”? an international the place greens (and end result, too) are on the heart of scrumptious meals—where crisp broccoli is the superstar of a cocktail party and the place the flavors and textures of brilliant, just-picked materials are a resource of inspiration.
 
As a lot for carnivores because it is for vegetarians, Vegetronic is a playful and provocative exam of the potential for clean produce. during this debut cookbook, Michelin-starred chef Alexis Gauthier introduces favourite elements from his kitchen—from aromatic rose petals to artichokes, from ripe tomatoes to overripe strawberries—and explains how you can spotlight their flavors in visually arresting, vegetable-intensive (but now not consistently vegetarian) preparations.
 
As arresting of their presentation as they're boldly flavored, those dishes might be so simple as peeling an orange or dicing a cucumber. Gauthier bargains feedback for coaxing anything scrumptious from early- or late-in-season elements, like unyieldingly tough peaches or end-of-season fava beans and peas. Gauthier indicates you ways to harness eggplant’s velvety texture for a sweet-and-sour bruschetta, or tips on how to make a pan-fried head of broccoli dressed with whole-grain mustard right into a useful major path. even if a dish will get an additional bump from bacon, poultry broth, or lamb jus, Gauthier’s emphasis is usually at the crucial style of the vegetable or fruit that facilities the dish as a whole.
 
those one hundred twenty various recipes specialize in the potential for clean end result and vegetables—a salad of hot asparagus ribbons set over ricotta gnocchi and crunchy bacon; a scattering of crisp apples over shockingly purple beets; a calming fava bean soup crowned with a silky poached egg; a pumpkin risotto made even creamier with a splash of mascarpone. So even if you’re a devoted vegetarian or simply an enthusiastic omnivore, Vegetronic will make you reconsider how you store, prepare dinner, and consume throughout the year.
