invite you to the launch of a inspiring collection of vegetarian recipes Roots, Shoots & Leaves
Bernadette le Roux
this beautiful cookbook has been published at the perfect time
From everyday greens to more forgotten heirloom varieties, the pages of Roots, Shoots & Leaves celebrates vegetables in a range of delicious, straightforward dishes. The emphasis is on fresh, seasonal ingredients, whether grown in the garden, sourced from a farmer’s market
or bought at a supermarket.
Try a delicate twice-baked cheese and courgette soufflé; a silky soup of celeriac with the crunch of toasted almonds; crisp fennel bulb in a salad of cress and blood oranges; baby aubergines in a creamy bake with tomato and thyme; a deliciously moist chocolate and beetroot cake, and much more.
A useful directory of where to source and how to grow your own heirlooms is included.
