Bishop, senior editor of Cook's Illustrated, is also the author of Pasta e Verdura (LJ 3/15/96), a nice collection of vegetarian sauces for pasta. Here are more vegetarian recipes for all courses of a meal, from cold and hot
antipasti to dessert. The recipes are fine but nothing special, and some of them seem more like variations on a theme rather than separate entities (e.g., Focaccia with Rosemary, Focaccia with Sage, Parmesan Focaccia). For larger collections and others
where vegetarian titles are particularly popular.

This uniquely accessible collection draws together the best vegetarian recipes of Italy-350 in all. 'Pasta and pizza may be
Italy's most eye-catching exports, but it is the country's varied and sensible use of vegetables that provides the best inspiration for American cooks,' writes Jack Bishop. 'Asparagus spears coated with a little olive oil and roasted to intensify their
flavor; thick slices of country bread grilled over an open fire and topped with diced tomatoes and shredded basil from the garden; or a fragrant stew with fennel and peas-Italians enjoy these dishes because of what they do contain, not what they don't.'
Many of the recipes were gathered by Bishop during extensive travels throughout Italy. Some are family favorites, adapted from those of his Italian grandmother. All deliver perfect results with a minimum of effort. Serving suggestions for each recipe
make planning vegetarian meals easy.
