Cabbages ride motorbikes. Baby artichokes get chipped. Olives skydive. Porcini get their Bolognese on. Listen to Your Vegetables is joyful and voluptuous and unbridled and ecstatic. Lend your ear to Sarah Grueneberg and she'll sing you a feast. THIS is the best book you will cook from this year. -- John T. Edge, author of The Potlikker Papers

Get yourself to a farmers' market and load up on the best of this season's vegetables. Then dig into this love letter to vegetables from the fantastic Sarah Grueneberg. -- Renee Erickson, co-owner and chef, Sea Creatures Restaurants, and author of Getaway

Some of the best meals I've ever had have been at Sarah Grueneberg's Monteverde in Chicago. And now some of her best, most mouthwatering recipes are right here. If I were you, I'd Listen to Your Vegetables and listen to Sarah. She, her restaurant, her recipes, and this book are all irresistibly delicious. -- Phil Rosenthal, host of Somebody Feed Phil

The joy and romance that Sarah brings to the act of cooking and eating is completely irresistible--and with Listen to Your Vegetables, she has beautifully translated that joy to the page for you to experience at home. These recipes and techniques and stories are a clarion call: 'Get up! Run to your nearest garden or farmers' market! The gift of delicious food, made simply and thoughtfully, is within reach!' If you're like us, you'll dog-ear practically every page--that's how inspiring Sarah's words and recipes are. -- Ashley Christensen and Kaitlyn Goalen, AC Restaurant

Listen to Your Vegetables is astounding. It's a lifetime book that belongs on every cook's shelf. I am envious of every young person falling in love with vegetable cookery with guidance from Sarah--the way I did with Deborah Madison. The thorough, approachable recipes are thoughtfully organized with beautiful illustrations to boot! -- Cheetie Kumar, chef and owner, Garland, Neptunes Parlour, KINGS

I've known Sarah for her entire career--I hired her for her first kitchen job when she was nineteen. I was literally moved to tears when she told me the title of her cookbook. I have so many memories of the two of us standing in the walk-in listening to our vegetables. Sarah is such a talented chef, and she has so much to teach--about cooking, about seasonality, about life. -- Chris Shepherd, chef and owner, Underbelly Hospitality

Sarah Grueneberg knows more than a few things about vegetables; this book captures a deep sensitivity to the land and technique with a vivid and descriptive master class on vegetable cookery. Listen to Your Vegetables is a book that offers a clear entry point for novices and experts alike. It is fun and beautifully inspiring. Listening has never tasted so good. -- Erick Williams, chef and owner, Virtue Restaurant and Mustard Seed Kitchen
