Kalk Bay Books & Sunbird
invite you to the launch of a inspiring collection of vegetarian recipes

Roots, Shoots & Leaves
by
Bernadette le Roux

 
As more and more of us become interested in and committed to knowing the source of our food,
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.

Fascinating heirloom vegetables, most of which have been overlooked in recent decades, are showcased throughout. These ancient, non-hybridised varieties, selected for flavour and taste, are enjoying renewed popularity.
A useful directory of where to source and how to grow your own heirlooms is included.
