Author(s): April Bloomfield
April Bloomfield - co-owner of the lauded Spotted Pig restaurant in New York - is a chef renowned for her nose-to-tail ethos. But her reverence for perfectly sweet peas and bright bunches of radishes matches her passion for the perfect cut of meat. In A Girl and Her Greens, April proves that vegetables can be as juicy, inviting and indulgent as the most succulent steak. From Swiss Chard Cannelloni to Roasted Onions with Sage Pesto, from Kale Polenta to Fennel Salad with Blood Orange, from Braised Peas and Little Gem Lettuce to Roasted Leeks with Walnut Breadcrumbs A Girl and Her Greens is packed with tantalising and flavoursome recipes for hearty food where vegetables truly take centre stage.
