    Book Description
    From Booklist
    A good French bistro may earn its renown for steak and pommes frites, but the best bistros have plenty of menu items that classify in the vegetarian category. Spieler appreciates the care that bistros take with vegetables, and her book elevates what are commonly side dishes to the status of entrees. Spieler offers some superior salads, both familiar cold salads as well as warm ones that combine cool, crisp greens with freshly cooked hot items, such as potatoes or cheese. For decades, great French restaurants have known that the secret to making vegetables memorable lies in dressing each vegetable separately and distinctively to make each a unique presentation. Spieler heeds that custom and also puts forth omelets, rissotos, and pastas to increase the substance of vegetarian dining. The current success of bistros in the U.S. and renewed interest in vegetarian cooking will create demand for Spieler's authentic recipes. Mark Knoblauch
