Few cooks look north for inspiration. In The Vegetarian Hearth , Darra Goldstein, whose past books include A Taste of Russia and the award-winning The Georgian Feast, shares tempting riches from cold climes and wintery times. Professor Goldstein, who teaches Russian at Williams College in Massachusetts, also demonstrates how satisfying meatless cooking can be. This book is equally perfect for vegetarians and for meat-eaters who think vegetarian cooking is pallid or monotonous. Fascinating essays interspersed among the extraordinary recipes include gems on buckwheat, rutabagas, and vegetarianism in Russia during Tolstoy's time. These treatises make you want to curl up with The Vegetarian Hearth under an eiderdown comforter, spooning up Hot Potato Snow, followed by Countess Tolstoy's Hot Apple Compote.From the Publisher:
Once regarded as a bleak time for vegetarians, in author Darra Goldstein's hands the cold months of the year become a time of bounty, warmth, and comfort. In this inspired cookbook, she has compiled recipes from the mountains of northern Italy, Norway, and Russia, as well as some unexpected places that provide lavish winter fare such as the high plains of Turkey's Anatolia and the windswept shores of Brittany.
The 150 varied recipes include Wild Mushroom Dumplings, Curried Potato Casserole, Baked Acorn Squash with Apples, Spiced Cabbage, Winter Fruit Soup, and Winter Vegetable Stew. They are accompanied by observations, quotations, and lore on the traditions of the many cultures that make The Vegetarian Hearth as much a pleasure to read as it is to cook from.
