Eating from the Ground Up: Recipes for Simple, Perfect Vegetables: A Cookbook 
by Alana Chernila
Hardcover – 27 February 2018
Vegetables keep secrets, and to prepare them well, we need to know how to coax those secrets out.

“What is the best way to eat a radish?” Alana Chernila hears this sort of question all the time. Arugula, celeriac, kohlrabi, fennel, asparagus–whatever the vegetable may be, people always ask how to prepare it so that the produce really shines. Although there are countless ways to eat our vegetables, there are a few perfect ways to make each vegetable sing.
With more than 100 versatile recipes, Eating from the Ground Up teaches you how to showcase the unique flavor and texture of each vegetable, truly bringing out the best in every root and leaf. 
The answers lie in smart techniques and a light touch. Here are dishes so simple and quick that they feel more intuitive than following a typical recipe; soups for year-round that are packed with nourishment; ideas for maximizing summer produce; hearty fall and winter foods that are all about comfort; impressive dishes fit for a party; and tips like knowing there’s not one vegetable that doesn’t perk up with a sprinkle of salt. No matter the vegetable, the central lesson is: don’t mess with a good thing.
“Alana Chernila, an author, teacher and blogger based in Massachusetts, starts her alluring new vegetable cookbook just the way springtime does, with radishes. She suggests radish butter, made with the tangy little bulbs chopped fine. Having opened the door to such seasonal simplicity, she goes on to explain how to buy, store and use vegetables 100 ways. This is not a vegan book; dairy, eggs and nuggets of meat are involved. Precious new potatoes with salsa verde, caramelized cabbage soup, soft zucchini on toast, and refreshing smashed cucumbers with soba noodles all tempted me.” -Florence Fabricant, New York Times
