Known for his game-changing approach to cooking with vegetables, Jeremy Fox first made his name at the Michelin-starred restaurant Ubuntu in Napa Valley. Today he is one of America's most talked-about chefs, celebrated for the ingredient-focused cuisine he serves at the Los Angeles restaurant, Rustic Canyon Wine Bar and Seasonal Kitchen. In his first book, Fox presents his food philosophy in the form of 160 approachable recipes for the home cook. On Vegetables elevates vegetarian cooking, using creative methods and ingredient combinations to highlight the textures, flavours, and varieties of seasonal produce and including basic recipes for the larder.

So many terrible cookbooks hit the market every month that it sometimes takes a while for the real gems to shine through. I've been hanging out with Jeremy Fox's On Vegetables since April and my love for it has only grown stronger. Its recipes read beautifully (cool melon and coconut milk curry, anyone?), look ravishing on the page and are an absolute doddle to turn into something delicious. (I've been putting Fox's strawberry sofrito sauce on everything for weeks now.) The book is oh-so 2017 in its celebration of green things rather than chunks of animal flesh. But it isn't didactic or moralistic in the slightest. Instead it's pragmatic and honest, and funny, too - like hanging with a laid-back NorCal surfer dude who just so happens to cook the best vegetarian food on earth. — The Sunday Times, Style magazine
[A] gorgeous array of recipes, focused on flora rather than fauna, with a surprisingly sober edge. — Eater
