A collection of recipes for vegetable dishes considers the types of vegetables that are available in a given season and offers tips on entertaining and selecting wines

Blackwell North Amer
Everyone knows that the easiest way to reduce fat consumption and meet recommended dietary guidelines is to adopt an "almost vegetarian" diet. But vegetarian doesn't have to mean bland or dull. Here, Susan Costner shows you how to go mostly meatless with style. Her simple but elegant dishes, which evolved from her own gradual move away from meat and toward the vegetable kingdom, celebrate the earth's treasures. Many dishes are purely vegetarian; a few employ chicken or veal stock as seasoning agents or use fish as a light and tasty focal point.
Susan Costner also provides expert advice on how to match wines and spirits with fruits as an elegant finale to any meal. Plus you'll find helpful tips on such topics as selecting and using wild mushrooms, choosing useful tools for this new way of cooking, and the art of making risotto.
Perfect for casual entertaining, great for everyday dining, Mostly Vegetables is not strict vegetarian cuisine. Instead, it's a magnificent celebration of the earth's bounty - and a joyful way to cook that's so delicious it's easy to forget it's also the healthiest way to eat.
