Gourmet nights goes veggie

I was thinking that it’s time I did another Gourmet Nights. Perhaps Italian this time – some silky, homemade pasta (from spelt flour); a decadent dessert (that’s lactose free). But, do you know, I don’t have any Italian cookery books. I have no idea why not. But whilst I was staring at my collection of culinary tomes, I realised what I do have is vegetarian books 🙂 Duh! OF COURSE I’ve got vegetarian books!

I am a bit predisposed to eat vegetarian but don’t you find that if you choose the vegetarian option when you eat out, chef seems to have made so much more effort with it than the ‘meat and 2 veg’ ? I assume that’s because they think they have to make up for the dish’s inherent short-comings. For God’s sake, no one tell them that we’re not missing out!

So away to my library for some inspiration. Some of these I have, some I aspire to:
