"Imagine you are in a bright, breezy kitchen. There are large bowls on the counter full of lush, colorful produce and a cake stand stacked with pretty whole-grain muffins. On the shelves live rows of glass jars, all shapes and sizes, containing grains, seeds, beans, nuts, and spices. You open the fridge and therein you find a bottle of fresh almond milk, cooked beans, soaking grains, dressings, ferments, and seasonal produce. This is Amy Chaplin's kitchen. It is a heavenly place, and it is this book that will make it your kitchen too. With her love of whole food and knowledge as a chef, Amy Chaplin has written a book that will inspire you to eat well at every meal, every day, year round. Part One lays the foundation for stocking the pantry. This is not just a list of ingredients and equipment; it's real working information--how and why to use ingredients--and an arsenal of simple recipes for daily nourishment. Also included throughout the book is information on living a whole-food lifestyle: planning weekly menus, why organic is important, composting, plastics versus glass, filtered water, drinking tea, doing a whole-food cleanse, and much more. Part Two is a collection of recipes (most of which are gluten-free) celebrating vegetarian cuisine in its brightest, whole, sophisticated form. Black rice breakfast pudding with coconut and banana? Yes, please. Beet tartlets with poppy seed crust and white bean fennel filling? I'll take two. Fragrant eggplant curry with cardamom basmati rice, apricot chutney, and cucumber lime raita? Invite company. Roasted fig raspberry tart with toasted almond crust? There is always room for this kind of dessert."--Publisher's description.

From basic tips on stocking your pantry to techniques and delicious recipes - this book is a winner. It has inspired me to go out and buy a tart pan so that I can make some of her savory and sweet tarts!
