"I just received the book in the mail and haven't tried out any recipes just yet, but I'm incredibly excited by the amazing recipes. I love how there is an index of all the winter veggies that gives you a brief history of the food and how to use it. Some I'd never heard of before! Taking a look at the recipes, all seem simple (just the veggies and maybe butter/oil and spices) and highlight the nutritiousness of each vegetable. I can't wait to get going!" --M. Simpson
"My highest accolades go to cookbooks that make me want to run into the kitchen and cook before I have even finished reading them. This book is one of the best examples of that inspiration! The recipes are homey, yet sophisticated, using common ingredients as well as more exotic ones such as celeriac and gobi (burdock). The barley and hazelnut pilaf that accomapnies roast beef is superb! Do yourself a favor and buy this book. Then pull it out each November and fall in love with the recipes all over again!" --Gail B. Palmer
