All the Chez Panisse books are great, plus those of their many chefs and alumni. I picked this one because when devising vegetarian menus I'm often inspired by its delicate yet precise touch, designed to show off the vegetables themselves. Plus it reminds me of happy days in their kitchen. ("Don't *crush* the garlic! Peel it carefully!")

The aesthetics of this book make it epic like a bible. It tells you so much about each vegetable and then gives you a recipe much in the style of MFK Fisher. The recipes aren't just listed procedure or quantities, it's a story about how you cook the vegetable.

From grilled radicchio to shaved artichoke and grapefruit salad, Alice Waters' recipes are creative and delicious, turning the humble vegetable into a feast.
