A bit too adventurous for me

Review:

Lucky Peach Presents Power Vegetables!: Turbocharged Recipes for Vegetables with Guts - Peter Meehan, the editors of Lucky Peach

This is quite a unique cookbook in that the recipes are different from what are usually found in a vegetable cookbook. This isn’t a vegetarian cookbook in that there are very few complete vegetarian meals but mostly side dishes. There are actually only a few recipes that I probably will ever try, such as the Quiche Lorraine, Ribollita and Latkes. Whenever I saw something else that looked interesting to me, it had ingredients that I’d never heard of and had no idea where I would find them. The baked Eggplant Marinara looked good to me until I saw that the only cheese in it was 3 cups of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese. It does call for a large ball of fresh mozzarella but with the cold slices placed on top or on the side. Maybe I’ll give it a try one day.

If you’re looking for exotic recipes such as Daikon with XO Sauce, Giardiniera, Mujadara, Pipian Rojo and Akuri, you’ll love this cookbook. The illustrations and author’s notes are fun but I can’t see myself getting much use of this cookbook.

This book was given to me by the publisher through Blogging for Books in return for an honest review.
