Learn to make extraordinarily delicious and modern vegetarian and vegan dishes that everyone will love with the help of two critically acclaimed, omnivore food writers.
If you're inclined to throw a dinner party, you probably do what most folks do: you make a few sides and maybe a salad, ask someone to bring dessert, and put a hunk of meat in the middle of the table, like the roast beast in The Grinch. But what about vegetables? Living in a meat-centric world, most of us simply don't know how to cobble together a series of vegetarian dishes that work together to create a perfect dinner party. Why? Because vegetarian cooking for dinner parties is not part of the American culinary lexicon, until now.
Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough take you by the hand and teach you not only how to make vegetarian and vegan dishes that everyone will love—from sweet pea samosas to warm vegan donuts, stews, braises, pastas, and more—but also how to actually build dinner parties starting with flavors, seasonality and availability, and even time and skill. Each recipe in Vegetarian Dinner Parties, which can certainly stand on its own, will be complemented by a wine or drink matching, and instructions for how to place the finished dish in the choreography of a 3-course dinner party.
