    1. A better title for this might be Garden and Field Harvest Not Meat at the Center of the Plate This is not a vegetarian cookbook, but rather a book for people who want to think differently, and healthfully, about planning meals If, instead of making a beef roast or chicken the star of the meal, you d prefer to start with something from the garden including potatoes, bread, and or corn, which dietetically are not vegetables this book might be helpfulIF you appreciate a French approach to cooking [...]


    2. I checked this out of the library yesterday, about a third of the reason being that it had recipes for fennel bulb and I wanted to try something different with the year s first fennel bulbs than the ideas I ve tried so many times in the past Another third was a second recipe that looked good and used ingredients currently in season, and the last third being that I generally like the style of cooking that the book was presented as being I was very disappointed in the taste of the recipe I chose t [...]


    3. I can hardly say I ve read this book, when I ve only tried two recipes, but I get bogged down when my currently reading list gets too long Long story short, I think I like it It s not actually a vegetarian cookbook, but oddly, I sometimes prefer that it often means the vegetarian dishes are decadent and a little less health foody And maybe my husband can get some use out of it too.I use Ms Well s Provencal cookbook with some frequency, but it s very meat oriented This is a nice balance, with v [...]


    4. Very hoity toity and nothing in here really sounds good Not that it s high falutin food, she just writes with a very condescending air about everything Including pumpkin seeds Tossing pumpkin seeds in the oven is not a recipe, and repeating the name in French also doesn t make it any fancier Lots of meat in a book that s supposed to be veggie centric at least based on the title Pretty pics of the veggies, but no pics of the recipes Phooey


    5. This is a wonderful cookbook Everything I ve made in it so far has been wonderful I especially love her appendix that has basic recipes for things to have on hand such as chicken stock, curry powder, salad dressings, etc.


    6. Gotta love the fancy vegetables Patricia Wells has always seemed like she would be a nice woman to me, and one that I d like to live next door so that she can bring over platters of delicious food on a whim Worth noting for vegetarians many of her vegetable dishes contain meat.


    7. The only frustrating thing about this book is that I can t cook everything at once Wells captures the elegant simplicity of French cooking with these easy recipes which focus on quality ingredients than fancy preparation.


    8. Patricia Wells recipes are frequently easier than they appear and offer maximum flavor with minimal fuss Recipes like broccoli puree with mint, grated beet salad, and steamed leeks with mustard and caper vinegrette are easy to make and tasty to eat.



    9. I had really high expectations for this book, given how much I love Trattoria But, the recipes are too complex for my schedule right now.


    10. Knowing about her I have acquired several of her books All her recipes are good Since I eat alot of veggies this was a good addition.


    11. Lots of simple, but delicious looking recipes Haven t tried any yet, but most top out at about 5 ingredients and sound amazing.



    12. There are so many recipes in this book that I ve marked to try I love the idea of having veggies be the center of attention


    13. Good recipes some require unusual ingredients that I ll have to hunt for Big complaint though there are gorgeous pictures, but none reflecting any of the recipes
