This fabulous cookbook was produced by Rizzoli and Slow Food, bringing 400 authentic regional Italian recipes to your kitchen.

 For centuries cooks throughout Italy cooks been making vegetarian dishes. Full of the exhaustive research that readers worldwide have come to expect from Slow Food, Vegetariano has gathered over 400 of the best vegetarian (and frequently vegan) recipes from home cooks in every region of Italy—all approachable, cookable, and full of the rustic Italian spirit of abbondanza and gracious hospitality.

Most feature their original preparations and ingredients, rather than being reengineered as vegetarian by modern chefs. Local knowledge and experience are highlighted, showcasing the generations of respect Italian cooks have lavished on their verdure. Sustainability, versatility, and a frugal cook’s lack of waste all characterize the recipes meticulously researched by Slow Food.

Organized by course, these 400-plus recipes are perfect for family meals and celebratory feasts alike, and each features charming cultural details and culinary customs not found in chef-driven books.
