Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

"Walk with Anya Kassoff through farmers markets, local food shops, and her garden, and you too will start to see fresh fruit and vegetables as the raw materials for artistic expression. Rose petal and honey sundaes, lemongrass and raspberry tiramisu with cardamom cream, amaranth pumpkin porridge- with these recipes in hand, you will never run out of ways to enjoy fresh, whole foods at home. Anya s family-focused food blog, Golubka (Russian for dove ), has a well-earned reputation for unique recipes that please the palate and senses. Her recipes are healthy by most standards always vegetarian, mostly vegan, gluten-free, and often raw and every dessert can serve as an energizing breakfast. Her food is fresh, seasonal, homemade, handcrafted, and 100% delightful, almost whimsical. Over 100 recipes include lighter interpretations of familiar classics and embody a fresh, bright sensibility that will inspire you well beyond the table. Anya s kitchen is part workshop and part art classroom, so many recipes double as food projects that can be done for or with kids. The Vibrant Table is a delicious homage to lightness and elegance at home."

"With a few exceptions, the recipes in this book are vegan and gluten-free"--page 5.

Library Journal Review

Kassoff, creator of the food blog Golubka (golubkakitchen.com), was born and raised in Russia. A vivid dream of huckleberry ice cream opens her visually rich collection of 100-plus recipes that offer health-conscious and gluten-free families a wide selection of elegant meal ideas. Raw, from-scratch preparations emphasize fresh fruits and vegetables and include numerous specialty ingredients. A few recipes require advance planning; for instance, (vegan) brazil nut oat yogurt, mixed in a high-speed blender, needs eight hours to soak and an additional one to three days to ferment. -VERDICT Stunning photographs and elegant prose distinguish this book from similar healthy vegetarian titles.
