Vedge and V Street - Philadelphia

Chefs and owners Kate Jacoby and Rich Landau of Philadelphia’s esteemed vegetable-centric restaurant, Vedge, have crafted a book of the same name and nature, Vedge: 100 Plates Large and Small That Redefine Vegetable Cooking. Filled with recipes that are free of any animal products, this husband-and-wife team concentrates on pulling flavors from natural, vegetable ingredients in creative and innovative ways, producing dishes that are exemplary models of a vegetable-based diet.
