by Amanda Cohen, Ryan Dunlavey
A graphic memoir? A cookbook? Why not be both? Amanda Cohen shares the story of Dirt Candy, her all vegetable restaurant in New York, along with recipes, technique, and the reality of building a restaurant and working every day to make it the best it can be. The graphic format allows for much humor in the story, and great diagrams in the recipes--from exactly how to compose a plate to step-by-step technique for everything from rolling dumplings to pressing kimchi. She also gives vegan adaptations for many recipes. Whether you're inspired to try the recipes or not, Dirt Candy is a fun, quick read that may inspire you to eat more vegetables!
