"It is not an understatement to say that Jeremy Fox makes the best-tasting vegetables on the planet."—David Chang
"One of the world's most inventive plant-based chefs."—Image Interiors & Living (Ireland)
"We love that Fox prefaces this collection of exquisitely beautiful vegetarian dishes with a ludicrously decadent mayo-filled grilled cheese sandwich because the two are not mutually exclusive. For gourmets of all stripes, then."—The Guardian, Cook
"Offers just as much theory as instruction for the sharply flavored, softly focused, gorgeously green cookery [Fox has] honed over the past decade... A must-read."—Eater
