With recipes such as Boozy Celery (brandied cream is the secret), Cajun Artichoke and Spinach (anise liqueur is the unexpected ingredient) and Tomato Devil's Food Cake with Tomato Butter Cream Frosting, Greene creates unexpected textures and flavors while enticing even the most stubborn meat and potatoes types to eat their vegetables. The book won the 1994 James Beard Cookbook Award.From the Back Cover:
