While traveling through France with a vegetarian companion, Marlena Spieler was delighted to discover an often-overlooked meatless French cuisine, rooted in regional traditions and preserved in the small, family owned neighborhood restaurants that are the soul of Gallic cooking. In The Vegetarian Bistro, she shares her delicious discoveries. Here at last are vegetarian recipes - some classic, others newly adapted - for the rich gratins, flavorful appetizers, warm salads, hearty soups, lusty braises, and homey desserts of beloved French bistros, from Paris to the northern regions of Brittany and Normandy and to the southern reaches of Provence and the Basque country. Illustrated with charming watercolors by Pierre Le-Tan, The Vegetarian Bistro brings the market-fresh bounty of regional French cooking into your own kitchen.
