Some of the most creative new minds in the kitchen and the most exhilarating new voices in food writing come from the world of blogs. Michael Natkin, creator of the wildly popular Herbivoracious.com, indisputably fits both of those descriptions. In Herbivoracious: A Vegetarian Cookbook for People Who Love to Eat, Natkin offers up 150 exciting recipes (most of which have not appeared on his blog) notable both for their big, bold, bright flavors and for their beautiful looks on the plate, the latter apparent in more than 80 four-color photos that grace the book. This is sophisticated, grown-up meatless cooking, the kind you can serve to company—even when your guests are dedicated meat-eaters.
Michael Natkin is the author of the immensely popular and award-winning vegetarian blog Herbivoracious. The author of the bi-weekly column “Serious Meatless” on the Serious Eats website, he’s known for a cutting-edge, light and healthy, beautiful-on-the-plate style of vegetarian cooking.
