Description

Veg is a delicious account of the wealth of vegetables grown in Britain today: how to choose them, prepare them and cook with them. As a passionate believer in buying veg locally in order to get the best quality, broadcaster, greengrocer and veg expert Gregg Wallace covers all the varieties that you're likely to want to eat. In "Veg", he describes the flavour and texture of every main variety of each vegetable included and identifies the pick of the bunch. Gregg encourages you to buy good local produce in season and helps you to distinguish between the freshest samples and their more tired counterparts. As well as instructions for cooking each vegetable to perfection in any way you can think of - from roasting, frying and grilling to boiling and steaming - there are over 120 delicious, easy, homely recipes covering every veg included in the book. Most of these dishes take no more than a few minutes to cook, proving beyond doubt that vegetables make the perfect healthy fast food.
