I don't usually ARC read cookbooks, but saw this one and just had to apply for it. Zucchini is my favorite veggie, wait no- I just learned in this book it is actually a fruit, so my favorite fruit.
I haven't tried much with it (before this cookbook) beyond adding it to soups or frying it. I am so thankful for a plethora of new ways to try it now. I am making the zucchini lasagna tonight and will definitely be trying the zucchini desserts. I enjoyed learning about the history of the fruit in the beginning of the book. I'm from the south, so these recipes will be near and dear to my heart just like they are to the author I am sure. Thank you so much for letting me be an ARC reader, I wish you much success on this books release!
I happen to love zucchini, so I was delighted to see this book pop up for review. I loved the recipes in here as they are easy, not too expensive and anyone who has ever grown zucchini knows, zucchini is rather ABUNDANT...to the point where you basically give it away. (MY sister who lived in Arkansas said you made sure you didn't leave your windows cracked during the summer when you were at church as you would find a basket of zucchini in your car once services were over!)
Great recipes that cover the range from appetizers to desserts and varied beyond the ubiquitous zucchini bread and 'ZOODLES. Easily understood by cooks of all levels, I will recommend this book far and wide!
Zucchini is one of my favorite vegetables. Plus it is so versatile. I grow it in my garden and constantly look for new ways to prepare it. I have made several of the recipes in this and I loved them. This is a cookbook you d onto wanna miss if you love or need more zucchini in your life.
I just reviewed Zucchini Love by Cynthia Graubart. #ZucchiniLove #NetGalley
I love a good zucchini but soon run out of ideas on how to use them and that is what drew me to this cookbook.. I love the cover photo as it made me hungry..
With 4 sections which include Appetizers and Snacks, Salads, Soups and Sides, Mains and even Sweets this covers all bases and there are some great recipes and information in this book and I have tried one or two recipes so far and look forward to trying more soon.
One that takes my fancy and which I will be making soon is the Zucchini Baba Ganoush. YUM. Now I am hungry again!
A great cookbook and one any zucchini lover will enjoy.
I do kind of love zucchini's after reading (and sampling) some of the suggestions from this book. I struggle to get my children to eat vegetables, but they were delighted to feast on chocolate brownies from this recipe book (of course made with zucchini)!
There are 4 sections to this book - these mainly equate to starters, lunches, mains and desserts/bakes. Some processes I felt were a stretch to my 'beginner' status, but there was enough variety that there was something for even the most novice of cooks!
A lovely recipe book, and one I would recommend highly!
My thanks to NetGalley, author and publisher for the opportunity to review this book for an advance copy.
Got Zucchini? Zucchini Love: 43 Garden-Fresh Recipes for Salads, Soups, Breads, Lasagnas, Stir-Fries, and More is a cookbook where every recipe contains zucchini. This is perfect for those who have gardens and too much zucchini. It’s also good for those who choose to purchase zucchini from the grocery store; it is available year round. It’s actually great for everyone who loves zucchini.
The recipes are written in the traditional manner, so they are easy-to-follow for anyone – beginning cooks to experienced cooks. The recipes call for ingredients that are easy to find, and are often on the pantry shelf, fridge, or freezer. There are recipes for appetizers, salads, soups, main dishes, and desserts. However, the book is light on main dishes – there should be more – but there are several side dishes which are appealing.
One positive to this cookbook is that there are beautiful photographs of most of the recipes. This makes it easy to see what the finished dish should look like, and makes it easier to choose which recipe to make next. The vegetable side dishes stand out, and the desserts look very appetizing. I made the Zucchini Ricotta pound cake first, and have a long queue of recipes to prepare.
All told, this small book has great zucchini recipes, but not enough of them. Most of the recipes are very appealing, and most have a minimum of ingredients. Anyone who loves zucchini will love the new recipes in this cookbook.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
There’s loads of great ideas in here for zucchini lovers like myself. I really enjoyed the zucchini and eggplant lasagne and the zucchini and tomato tian and I’m really looking forward to trying out some more of these recipes.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for an advanced digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
43 recipes for zucchini, plus a history! With 4 sections which include Appetizers and Snacks, Salads, Soups and Sides, Mains and even Sweets this book highlights the versatility of zucchini!!
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.
This is an awesome cookbook. I love zucchini and knew it could be used in so many different ways. This book opened my eyes even further. With loads of techniques for cooking zucchini. The recipes look delicious and easy to follow. I feel inspired to make most of these dishes. I also loved the pictures for each dish.
For someone trying to east more veg and less meat, this book is a delight! There are so many great recipes in here.. I love Zucchini, but struggle to be inventive with it - well not anymore! I especially love the baking recipes that are a great way to incorporate veg into lunchbox treats for the kids! Great book!
Okay, I am so happy to have gotten this one from Storey Publishing and Cynthia Graubart. Even though it's only March, I'm already prepping my summer garden space logistics, and I will be planting tons of zucchini. In years past, I ran out of dishes to make with all of my grown zucchini, but I will be set this year. Zucchini Rollups, Zoodles, Zucchini galettes, and flatbreads catch my eye immediately. I can't wait to get my hands on a physical copy.
This book is delicious!!! My love to zucchinis just grew a hundred times over. The recipes are easy to follow. The images are mouthwatering. Can't wait to try all the recipes in the book. Cynthia Graubart created a master piece
This is a solid summer cookbook. Have a garden full of zucchini and need an idea...or 50? This is the book for you! Most of the recipes had photos, and there was a good selection of dishes from zucchini bread to zucchini lasagna to zucchini pot stickers to zucchini prosciutto pesto pizza. Good variety with lots of vegetarian recipes, but also a a few with chicken, shrimp, and beef. Some delicious sounding desserts too, including zucchini fudge brownies. The only thing missing was a zucchini cocktail, haha. Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC.
Creative, exciting, and delicious! I loved this collection of recipes, it was full of great ideas I’d never considered before. As someone trying to incorporate more veggies into my meals, I loved this book, and definitely recommended it to people.
Thank you to NetGalley and to the publisher for this arc in exchange for an honest review.
Seeking ways to reduce food waste? Hoping to rely more on locally grown foods? Dreading the annual over abundance of zucchini? This cookbook helps address all three. Beautiful photographs and frank admissions, e.g. “cooked zoodles do not keep well,” help boost confidence in these recipes. I know I’ll turn to this book when the zucchini start piling up.
