Editorial | Platters & Boards for Vegetarian 'Ventures

Vegetarian 'Ventures new book, Platters and Boards, has 40 spreads (which are themes and food grouping ideas for your event) and each spread has a recipe (examples include Quick-Rose Pickled Grapes, Triple Cheese Truffle Oil Fondue, Fall Harvest Focaccia, Whipped Feta with Black Sesame Seeds, etc) along with a drink pairing and meat suggestion.

It was so fun working with Shelly again on her second cookbook. She always has a clear vision for what she wants her videos to look like and it's so fun to work and plan to make it happen. I'd also recommend taking a look at her first book, Vegetarian Heartland, if you haven't already!

I had the opportunity to photograph Anyetsang's Little Tibet to accompany Meredith Heil's review for the new Bon Appetit Neighborhood Guide. If you have the opportunity to go, I also recommend the momos.
