Praise For V Street: 100 Globe-Hopping Plates on the Cutting Edge of Vegetable Cooking

“Landau is one of the leaders in a food revolution that sees mainstream chefs putting vegetables at the center of the plate.”
— Lisa Ko, author of The Leavers

“Eating here always makes me wonder 1) when I’ll get to see it again and 2) why more meatless restaurants don’t follow its wonderful recipe for food and service. I know I’m not alone. The drinks are as serious as at any steakhouse, and the pedigree couldn’t be meatier.”
— Washington Post

“I’ve made no secret of my affection for the cooking of Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby, the couple behind Vedge… and its more casual sibling, V Street… The book aims to help readers bring those flavors home.”
— Washington Post

“If you are looking for some inspiring vegetarian dishes, look no further than the ‘newly arrived’ shelf at your local bookstore… None is more modern than V-Street… The new book features fun recipes for Dan Dan Noodles… and Churro Ice Cream Sandwiches.”
— Providence Journal
