Special Order - Arrival Times Vary
Vegetables, but not as you know them... A one-of-a-kind baking book, devoted to vegetables, with wonderfully original creations that promise deliciousness as well as health. Why aren't we using vegetables in desserts? They are as sweet as many fruits, and offer incredible flavors and visual appeal, and of course a wonderful boost of nutrition as well. This baking book with a difference brings you a kale and coconut gateau, asparagus and sesame cake, a carrot and cilantro traybake, cheesecakes made with fennel, pumpkin, arugula... along with all their goodness. From beet cheesecake to radish-topped pavlova, smuggling veg into meals has never been easier. Squashes, corn, carrots, spinach, peas, kale, onions and even fiddlehead ferns take you into a new culinary universe, where the tastes are intriguing and the results also irresistibly tempting to eat.
