An instant classic when published in the UK, Tender is a cookbook, a primer on produce, and above all, a beloved author's homage to his favorite vegetables. Slater's inspired and inspiring writing makes this a book to sit with and savor as much as one to prop open in the kitchen. A passionate guide to savoring the best the garden has to offer, Tender explores 29 vegetables and offers enticing, comforting recipes such as Potato Cakes with Chard and Taleggio, a Tart of Asparagus and Tarragon, and Grilled Lamb with Eggplant and Za'atar. With wit, enthusiasm, and a charming lack of pretension, Slater champions vegetables--through hands-on nurturing in the garden and straightforward preparations in the kitchen--with this essential book for every kitchen library.
