Flexitarian Cookbook

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

Believe it or not, it's possible for vegetarians and meat-lovers to share a meal. Chef Peter Berley provides recipes that work equally well meatless or meat-full in a new cookbook called The Flexitarian Table. Flexetarianism is part-time vegetarianism, with an emphasis on grains, lean proteins, and beans.

The Flexitarian Table is available for purchase at

Weigh in: If you have both vegetarians and meat-eaters in your family, we want to hear from you. What's your favorite recipe that can be adjusted to suit everybody?

This man is a genius. His cookbooks are a delightful
combination of tools, recipes and philosophies about food and how to make it special for you. His prepared recipes are delicious and very unique.

You are either veggie or not. Flexitarians is a marketing term. Go home.

I just turned this show on as it was ending. Did anyone catch the name of the new restaurant Peter Berley will be opening up in New York City?? I would love to go.

as a non pushy vegan, this man has made me very happy. a lot of us appreciate the "something for everyone" approach in a restaurant, i'm very much looking forward to the opening of his new place. and now i'm also very hungry, time for lunch...
