Banyen's Description: 

At Home in the Whole Foods Kitchen is a sophisticated vegetarian cookbook with all the tools you need to be at home in your kitchen, cooking in the most nourishing and delicious ways—from the foundations of stocking a pantry and understanding your ingredients, to preparing elaborate seasonal feasts.

With her love of whole food and her know-how as a chef, Amy Chaplin has written a book that includes all you need to eat well at every meal, every day, year round. Part One lays the foundation, educating the reader on stocking the pantry. This is not just a list of ingredients and equipment; it's real working knowledge--how and why to use ingredients--and an arsenal of simple recipes for daily nourishment. Part Two is a collection of over 150 recipes celebrating vegetarian cuisine in its brightest, whole, sophisticated form.

 I love introducing people to the nightly rituals of soaking, grains, beans, and nuts and how the routine of cooking can inspire and delight not just the cook but everyone involved…

Through this book, my intention is to inspire you to seek out ingredients that have been grown with reverence for the environment, find a deeper connection to the natural world, and above all else, to cook more. This way we can participate in a healthy, sustainable food system that truly nourishes us all.

Black rice breakfast pudding with coconut and banana? Yes, please. Beet tartlets with poppy seed crust and white bean fennel filling? I'll take two. Fragrant eggplant curry with cardamom basmati rice, apricot chutney, and cucumber lime raita? Invite company. Honey vanilla bean ice cream with roasted plums and coconut crunch? There is always room for this kind of dessert.

If you are an omnivore, you will delight in this book for its playful use of produce and know-how in balancing food groups. If you are a vegetarian, this book will become your best friend, always there for you when you`re on your own, and ready to lend a hand when you`re sharing food with family and friends. If you are a vegan, you can cook nearly every recipe in this book and feed your body well in the truest sense. This is whole food for everyone.
