Following the successes of Cafe Paradiso and the award-winning Paradiso Seasons, Denis Cotter is back with an evocative, witty collection of tales and a superb range of exciting and delicious vegetarian recipes. Wild Garlic, Gooseberries and Me cajoles, informs and questions our relationship to the land and the vegetables we eat. We go on a personal journey with Denis as he shares his passion for his favourite foods. Denis drags us into muddy fields and introduces us to the growers of the best produce imaginable. Through heart-felt and charming text, he informs and amuses. The excitement of a robust blackberry jam becomes a passionate argument for us to go out into the countryside, the dazzling sight of high-trailing borlotti beans ignites a discussion on the future of artisan growing. Whether creating a restaurant masterpiece or foraging in hedgerows and woods, Denis searches for a new connection between food, people and land ! oh, and he also teaches you how to search for mushrooms, wild greens and sloes, how to cook asparagus and take on an artichoke with attitude. Divided into four themed chapters, 'It's a Green Thing', 'Wild Pickings', 'A Passionate Pursuit' and 'Growing in the Dark', each including information and anecdotes about the vegetables that feature as well as many delicious recipes. There are simple salads and soups as well as more challenging main meals and mouth-watering desserts. Recipes include: Fresh Pasta with Abyssinian Cabbage, Pine Nuts & Sheep's Dressing; Courgette Flower, Pea and Chive Risotto; Samphire Tempura with Coriander Yoghurt; Grilled Portobello Mushrooms with Potato Pancakes and Tarragon Cream; Cabbage Timbale of Celeriac and Chestnuts with Porcini and Oyster Mushroom Sauce Stunning images of the landscape, the food and the finished recipes complete this delightful read and unique recipe book.

Dennis Cotter created a considerable stir with Café Paradiso and the award-winning Paradiso Seasons, both books that brought fresh and innovative elements into food writing. Wild Garlic, Gooseberries... and Me is different from the earlier books; this is a winningly written, often very funny collection of anecdotes and tempting to vegetarian recipes. Cotter takes us on a journey which is both an introduction his favourite foods as well as a way of collecting the best possible ingredients -- and as this involves foraging in woods and hedgerows, it's not for those will have no wish to stray further than their kitchens. Want to know how to find the best mushrooms, sloes or wild greens? You'll find Wild Garlic, Gooseberries... and Me a highly useful guide.

There are four themed chapters: It's a Green Thing, Wild Pickings, Nature and Nurture and Growing in the Dark; in these different sections, there are many delightful stories about the author's favourite vegetables (which turn out to have more individual character than one might expect) and valuable info regarding their preparation. Of course, it is the recipes which lie at the heart of a book like this, and those here are cherishable, from straightforward salads and soups up to more ambitious main courses and refreshing deserts. Complementing the recipes is the quirky text (the latter, of course, the speciality of the author); Cotter is the owner of the much-acclaimed Paradiso restaurant in Cork, celebrated for its use of local produce; the illustrations include striking images of the food and the locales featured within these pages. Whatever your attitude to vegetarian cooking may be, it's possible it will be changed by this book. --Barry Forshaw


'No other book on vegetables in my library is so beautifully written or so thought-provoking. The recipes are intriguing and original but even if you never cook a single thing out of this book (which would be a crying shame), its worth buying for Denis's beautiful prose - you'll never think of vegetables in the same way again.' Darina Allen in the Irish Examiner, 17th November 2007 'Not only the most gorgeous book title of the year, but also the most stylishly produced volume, and it's a cracking read too.' The Irish Times 'A cookbook to lust after.' Image Magazine 'Vegetarian cookery with delicious style.' BBC Good Food Magazine, January 08 'Whether you get a veg box every week or shop at your local supermarket, you can't fail to have noticed that the variety of veg on offer has increased markedly over the last couple of years. This is exactly the kind of book you need to make the most of them. Denis Cotter, owner of Cafe Paradiso in Cork, Eire, has a way with veg, and his passion for them really comes through. Celeriac fritters with caper and rosemary aioli were earthy and sweet and the aubergine and cime di rape (turnip tops) with chillies, feta, citrus and pomegranate is packed with flavour, with none of the gloom associated with salad in winter. We guarantee you won't even notice the lack of meat.' Book of the Month, Olive Magazine Image Interiors magazine, February 08 '!his latest book gives us an earthy and lyrical insight to his passion for food and the land it comes from. In what is much more than just a cookbook, Denis regales us with his ruminations on vegetables and adds quirky reminiscences and amusing anecdotes. The tone is fun and reverential - it's as though he treats the vegetables as stars and each recipe as one of their performances!the future for vegetarians never tasted so good.' Organic Life, January 08 '!the dishes in this book will dazzle you with their invention and tantalise your tastebuds further. Yet the book also informs you with great wit and charm, and will leave you thinking more about our own connections with the land and our evolving food culture.' Birmingham Evening Mail, 10th January 'A book for real foodies - bringing together chef's anecdotes with tasty choices.' Good Book Guide '!engaging narrative as well as stunningly innovative recipes.'

This is a beauty! Cotter definitely loves his food-veggies and fruit, even the unusual. Particularly when it is home grown or grown within the district. Well-written, lovely photos and recipes that you use and enjoy. The recipes are usable wherever in the world you live.
This stunning book is a find, indeed.

2.0 von 5 Sternen rambling and unorganised 26. Juli 2011
Von aareed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I tried to like this book. It is just so hard to get into. The author rambles on without any direction. I keep wondering, "What is he talking about now?" Even the author has a hard time figuring out what he's writing about. Case in point, the Introduction begins with:

"While I was writing this book, most people I know learned not to ask two particular questions: 'How is it coming along?' and 'What is it about?'... The answer to the first question was almost always a moan, often very long, sometimes monosyllabic. To the second question I would answer simply, 'Vegetables' and most of the time I really felt that it was enough of an explanation."

It's like while he was writing it, he didn't have any direction and was confused about where it was going. Sadly, that comes out when reading. The book suffers from a terrible lack of organization and identity crisis. Looking to the table of contents offers no insight either. It consists of:

It's a green thing
Wild pickings
A passionate pursuit
Growing in the dark
About the author

The chapter titles are meaningless and give no indication what is in them. The first chapter, "Its a green thing" is where the author starts rambling on about different kinds of vegetables like kale, asparagus and watercress. I wish the table of contents would simply say, Kale, Asparagus and Watercress. The author simply starts talking about different vegetables as if they came suddenly into his mind. Oh gosh, I should talk about asparagus now, blah blah. Suddenly and without warning, the chapter ends with a handful of recipes. It's like they got shuffled into the manuscript right before printing.

The next few chapters follow the same logic, or lack thereof. We ramble on about something garden-related, then toss in a few recipes. Every time I pick up this book I find myself scratching my head and wondering, "What IS this book supposed to be? A cookbook? A biography? An essay about gardening?"

The person who edited this book at HarperCollins should be sacked. The lack of organisation in both the book's layout and in the authors meandering writing is too hard to take. Like I said, I really wanted to like this book. It just goes nowhere and bounces around. First the author talks about a specific type of vegetable, then he tells a story like Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall on River Cottage. Ok this is good, I like stories. Then bang, there is a random recipe. Oh kaaay... How about just telling stories? How about just recipes? For heavens sake, just pick something.

I have so enjoyed this book . . . and the inventive bright recipes. You can feel the love for food that the author has. Even thought there are some recipes I won't be able to do because of my location . . . the rest are something I am looking forward to. This book opened my eyes to some new creativity and new ingredients.
