From the first tender pea shoots in spring to the last brilliant orange pumpkins in autumn, vegetables are the cook's harbinger of the changing seasons. Vegetables are often thought of as sides that complement a main dish of meat or poultry.
While this is a great way to showcase the garden's gems, the latest title from The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), Vegetables, celebrates vegetables in all their starring roles—appetizers, soups, salads, entrees, sauces, and side dishes.

This instant classic will inspire and instruct you with vegetable lore and recipes that are sure to tempt you and your family. They will reward you with fresh and flavorful dishes that make the most of the bounty available from your own local produce stands, farmers markets, and gardens.
