Alice Waters, the iconic food luminary, presents 200 new recipes that share her passion for the many delicious varieties of vegetables, fruits, and herbs that you can cultivate in your own kitchen garden or find at your local farmers' market.
 
A beautiful vegetable-focused book, The Art of Simple Food II showcases flavor as inspiration and embodies Alice's vision for eating what grows in the earth all year long.
