She makes the distinction that Dirt Candy is a “vegetable” restaurant, not a “vegetarian” restaurant, and seeks to redefine the way the modern palate approaches eating veggies. It’s no wonder, then, that Dirt Candy as a cookbook redefines the way a traditional printed collection of recipes works. A graphic novel format tells of Cohen’s history in cooking, her team’s loss on Iron Chef, and her personal/professional methodologies in a refreshingly frank and honest way that’s very much her style. Then, of course, there’s the recipes: everything from the jalapeño hush puppies to Cohen’s own mushroom take on foie gras comes explained, step by admirably difficult step. We hope Dirt Candy starts a revolution, one in which everyone eats and enjoys vegetables and no one’s mean about it. (via Flavorwire » 10 Deliciously Quirky Cookbooks)
