Steven Satterfield, Miller Union’s executive chef, knows his way around vegetables – every part of them, in fact. He shares his knowledge and simple approach to produce in his new cookbook, which focuses on seasonal, local options and helps you use each part of the plant. With such beautiful photography, the hardback copy can easily be a coffee table book as much as a kitchen tool. Order one from HarperCollins for $45. harpercollins.com
