    Barbara Kafka's book, Vegetable Love, brings us the last word on vegetables. The book has 200 pages dedicated simply to background information on vegetables - buying and storing, cutting, basic cooking techniques, yields and equivalences - in addition to 750 recipes. The recipes are divided into four sections: Vegetables of the New World; Vegetables of the Mediterranean Basin, Europe, and the Arab World; Vegetables of Asia and Africa; and, Citizens of the World. It's not a vegetarian cookbook - there are recipes with meat and dairy. It's a culinary exaltation of all things leafy and colorful (or what she calls "the sweet seductive perfume of slowly sautéing onions, the impossibly vivid red of roasted peppers, the slow dance of eating an artichoke"). If you have a vegetarian significant other who loves too cook, this might be a good addition to his or her bookshelf on Valentine's Day.
