Book Launch: The Vegetable

Books for Cooks

Event Date: 8 November 2017
Author / Presenters: Books for Cooks in conversation with Caroline Griffiths & Vicki Valsamis

Every now & then, a book leaps off the page of the publisher's catalogue and screams COOK ME!

The Vegetable - is one of those books. 

Vegetable and plant based cooking are hot topics at present for many reasons - but for us - it's always about the food.  The Vegetable is an essential collection of 130 plant-based recipes featuring fresh flavours and exciting combinations that will delight anyone looking to eat more vegetables. 

With recipes for dishes large and small as well as sauces and pickles, The Vegetable is the perfect companion for simple dinners and feasts with friends alike over summer.

Local authors Caroline Griffiths and Vicki Valsamis have put together a truly beautiful book: a feast for the eyes and the stomach - and a certain award winner.

Caroline Griffiths is an author, qualified home economist, cook, food writer and food stylist with a keen interest in nutrition.  She is a passionate food expert with over 25 years of food industry experience, having worked in Australia’s best-known test kitchens.
