Amazing cookbook....Vibrant Food by Kimberley Hasselbrink

Vibrant Food: Celebrating the Ingredients, Recipes, and Colors of Each SeasonThis is an amazing cookbook! From the very first page I was fascinated by the colorful and appealing combinations of vegetables pictured.
This is definitely a cookbook which not only earns an important place in the kitchen but also deserves a spot on the coffee table! I read the entire cookbook in one sitting, and look forward to spending the year gracing my table with beautiful color-coordinating displays. From spring to summer, fall to winter, each season is showcased perfectly. The author has such artistic talent. As an artist, photographer and cook myself, this book is a five-star for me!
Needless to say, I recommend this book to all, culinary enthusiasts and new cooks alike.
Some of the wonderful recipes in this book are...Spring Pea and Pea Shoot Omelet, 
 Rhubarb Ginger Fizz, Nasturtium Salad, Like Fresh Chickpeas on Toast;
Grilled Trout with Green Tomato Relish and Roast Chicken with Spring Onions;
Tomato Fennel Soup and Smoky Red Pepper Soup; Pasta with Nettle Pesto and Blistered Snap Peas; Chocolate Truffles with Bee Pollen, Chocolate Pots de Crème with Lavender and Sea Salt.
