Introduction: I have created a book where the vegetables are the ‘heroes’. It is full of sensational flavours, colours, textures and taste adventures. Just because you’ve made a choice to omit or decrease meat or fish from your diet doesn’t mean you necessarily have inactive taste buds! I feel vegetarians are often treated with contempt. For instance, as much as I love a mushroom risotto or a mozzarella, tomato and basil salad, I am always amused to see how many restaurants only offer these dishes as their vegetarian choice. As a chef, I’ve always ensured that there are enticing vegetarian dishes on my menus. Many of them appear here in this book, with not a ‘nut loaf’ in sight. It will appeal to vegetarians, carnivores and pescetarians alike. In fact, I hope this book inspires you whether you’re a vegetarian or simply someone who wants to add more vegetables to your diet.Ultimately cooking should be fun and come from the heart; it should bring pleasure and stimulate the senses and provide you with the pleasure of self-satisfaction. Everything is adaptable; sometimes the best results are created through improvisation. These recipes are simply building blocks by which you can build your own collection of delectable dishes. So, go on your own culinary journey and experiment along the way. Never be wed to the outcome and you will be delighted by what transpires – a bit like life really – you could be totally surprised!
