Item description for This Good Food: Contemporary French Vegetarian Recipes from a Monastery Kitchen by Victor-Antoine D'Avile-Latourrette & Victor-Antoine D'Avila-La Tourette...

"To this Benedictine monk---whose vegetable and herb beds, chickens, and sheep surround his small monastery---preparing food is prayer."---Gourmet

This Good Food presents some 150 French vegetarian recipes that take advantage of seasonal produce and readily available ingredients.

From a healthy Peasant Soup to a Leek Tart, Fava Beans Castilian Style to a Mushroom Salad with Lemon to Basque Cake with Pears, Brother Victor will show you how rich and delicious flavors can be coaxed from simple ingredients when combined and prepared in the appropriate way. 50+ black-and-white illustrations

Reviews - What do customers think about This Good Food: Contemporary French Vegetarian Recipes from a Monastery Kitchen?

Extraordinary  Feb 6, 2009
I found out about this cookbook when I saw it lying on my upstairs neighbor's kitchen counter face open to the recipe for Leek and Potato Soup which I scanned briefly and thought sounded delicious. And, I was was immediately taken with the artwork on every page accompanied by excerpts from poems, scripture, and information and advice from other cooks. I feel amazingly fortunate to have acquired it secondhand and in very good condition from this site.
Fabulous Feast for Vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike!  Jan 26, 2005
This cookbook is by and far my favorite vegetarian book. My husband is a vegetarian but he hates beans. Finding a vegetarian cookbook whose recipes aren't nearly completely beans can be a challenge.

The emphasis on fresh foods, foods in season, and hearty recipes makes this cookbook an excellent investment. Just reading it makes your mouth water! If I had to have one vegetarian cookbook in my collection, this would be it, hands down.
Excellent, nutritional recipes that are great.  Aug 17, 1999
I cherish all of the books written by this author--there is only one that I do not have. He writes clearly and the recipes are easy to assemble and to follow. Because the ingredients used are fresh, the end result is delicious and hearty. All I can say is that the monks in this monastery eat VERY WELL!!!! They have a very talented Chef who obviously loves all aspects of his work and his vocation.
Make friends with owners of this cook book  Feb 22, 1999
One of my friends bought this book and has allowed me to sample his cooking ... I recommend buying or associating with someone who owns and uses this book!!! The recipies are very good and healthy.
A delight for the senses and the soul  Jun 1, 1998
Those of us who love to cook sometimes love to just curl up with a cookbook on a quiet night and READ. this book is wonderful for these times... it is infused with a sense of calm, joy, peace, a love of nature and simple pleasures. I love how the recipes are arranged according to season, so that the ingredients and richness of the meals are in sync with changing weather and ingredients throughout the year. and reading the section about fresh herbs made me run out to the local garden center to buy basil. best of all, there's not a bad recipe in the bunch. unlike many vegetarian cooks who seem to want to smother everyhthign with cumin and miso, Brother Victor is a master of simplicity. the recipes have one or two perfectly chosen herbs to bring out natural flavors, subtly and iwth restraint. i highly recommend this book!
