The Modern Cook’s Year

Written by Anna Jones


OPL BOOK SUMMARY: If you are interested in vegetarian and seasonal meals, then The Modern Cook’s Year is for you!  Anna Jones’ lovely book wanders through the seasons with food from starters, mains, and desserts.  She helps you plan your year through the chapters: herald of spring, the first warm days of summer, autumn, and winter.  It is an accessible culinary adventure with recipes that put vegetables front and center.

Anna has a way of knowing what will please the taste buds in alignment with the seasons. Her recipes use creative combinations from her experiences. For example, I love lemon cake, but her lemon and cardamom upside-down cake takes it to another level.  The book shines with unexpected and wonderful flavor combinations.  Anna’s book makes cooking vegetarian an at-home culinary experience. I highly recommend it!
