Roasting vegetables concentrates their sugars and brings out complex, caramelized flavors that render them irresistible. Chesman gives detailed instructions on how to roast to perfection every vegetable, and then assembles a mouthwatering collection of recipes, from simple sides like Cider-Glazed Acorn Squash to main dishes like Lemon Risotto with Roasted Summer Vegetables. There are also sensational sandwiches, soups and starters, entrées ranging from homey to elegant, and much more.
