Join Renée Kohlman (sweetsugarbean) launching 'Vegetables: A Love Story' featuring a conversation with Jenn Sharp.
On Renée Kohlman’s very first date with her partner Dixon, he presented her with a bundle of asparagus. She knew immediately it was love and that her next cookbook would be all about vegetables.
In 23 chapters organized by vegetable, from that auspicious Asparagus to the reliable Zucchini, Vegetables: A Love Story includes 92 delicious and easy-to-follow vegetable-forward (but not exclusively vegetarian) recipes. Soups, salads, sides, tarts, casseroles, pastas, snacks, and more are accompanied by vivid photography that celebrates both raw ingredients and finished dishes.
Renée Kohlman is the author of the Taste Canada award-winning cookbook All the Sweet Things (Touchwood Editions, 2017). She’s a professional cook and baker, freelance food writer, and columnist for the Saskatoon StarPhoenix. She also writes a popular food blog, Sweetsugarbean. In the summer you’ll find her in the garden admiring her sweet peas and coaxing her cats down from trees; in the winter she’s curled up with a book and a mug of hot chocolate. Renée lives in Saskatoon.
Jenn Sharp is a storyteller, food activist, author and filmmaker based in Saskatoon. Her first book, Flat Out Delicious: Your Definitive Guide to Saskatchewan’s Food Artisans was published by Touchwood Editions in April 2020.
