In the twenty-six years since Jeanne Lemlin’s first cookbook was published, vegetarian food has gone mainstream--but there seems to be less time to cook it in. The timing is right for a new cookbook that reminds old fans of and introduces new ones to Lemlin’s unique style of relaxed vegetarian cooking.

Her recipes are suited to particular seasons and draw on global influences.
Jeanne carefully guides readers with easy-to-follow instructions, offering tips on just what to do with those extra beet greens and perfecting your Pâté Brisée. Featuring over 35 stunning photographs and over 50 menus, Simply Satisfying gives those new to vegetarian cooking an essential starting point and brings seasoned cooks new favorites and ideas for entertaining.
