Root & Leaf: Big, Bold Vegetarian Food

Rich Harris

ISBN 9780857834416

Vegetables are not only hugely diverse, they are also incredibly versatile.

In this exciting book they take centre stage as Rich Harris explores the many ways of using them, including pickling, smoking and fermenting, alongside the more traditional roasting and braising.

As a chef and committed carnivore, Rich’s use of vegetables focuses on flavour, bringing out the natural tastes of vegetables and playing with complementary textures and qualities. His creative and delicious recipes include Miso Glazed Pumpkin, Gnocchi with Caponata and Burrata Cream, as well as Celeriac Rice Pudding with Bramble Compote.

Perfect served alone, as a side dish or part of a collection of vegetarian small plates, Rich’s recipes show you how to celebrate vegetables in their delicious and varied glory.

Reviews, News & Interviews:

Harris's strength is in providing recipes to feed a crowd, from shareable salads to loaded, sticky-fingered flat-breads. This is vegetarian food but not as we know it. the Daily Telegraph
