“A great book. Period. . . . Never before have I seen so many fascinating, delicious, easy recipes in one book. . . . In fact, it’s about as close to a perfect cookbook as I have seen. What McFadden and Holmberg have achieved is no small feat: This is a book that will educate nearly everyone who picks it up, a book beginner and seasoned cooks alike will reach for repeatedly. It’s the rare book that achieves what it sets out to do, and manages to do so in a manner that is both appetizing and engaging. It is accessible without sacrificing its artistry.”

“The book’s appealingly simple recipes are focused on delivering big flavor.”
The Wall Street Journal, The Best Books to Give to the Food Lover in Your Life

Six Seasons: A New Way with Vegetables is poised to join the veggie canon. . . . The flavors are big. . . . They’re also layered and complex, despite their apparent simplicity. What will really change your cooking is [McFadden’s] approach to seasoning. . . . Trust me: Read this book and you’ll never look at cabbage the same way again.”

“The Six Seasons cookbook. Have you bought it yet? I know this is awfully bossy of me, but I think you should. I think that if you, like me, delight in inventive but not overly complicated vegetable preparations (225 of them, even), things you hadn’t thought of but that you’ll immediately tuck into your repertoire, you’re going to love this book as much as I do. I confess I’ve had it for almost a year. In that year, I’ve been almost overwhelmed with how much I’ve wanted to cook from it.”
—SmittenKitchen.com

“Exciting flavor combinations mean this is no mere guide to vegetables but a primer on how to make them taste their exciting best.”
Fine Cooking
 
“Downright thrilling. . . . Divided into six seasons rather than the traditional four—a more accurate reflection of what’s happening in the fields—the book encourages readers to embrace what he calls ‘the joyful ride of eating with the seasons. . . .’ On page after page, McFadden presents a deliciously enlightening way of cooking with vegetables.”
—Sunset

“Enduringly rewarding. I am utterly consumed with Six Seasons and feel I could cook from it every day without tiring.”
—Nigella Lawson
 
“This cookbook might put meat out of business. It’s that good. . . . A rare source of new ideas about vegetables. McFadden’s forward-looking sensibility infuses every recipe.”
—Portland Monthly
 
“Brilliant.”
—Food52

“[This is] a cookbook I’ve gotten a little obsessed with. . . . The book offers inspiring treatments for vegetables that are often relegated to a boring crudité tray—if you’re looking for a new way to treat celery or cabbage, you need a copy.”
—Serious Eats
 
“The most exciting approach to home cooking I’ve seen all year. . . . Six Seasons is one of the most satisfying cookbooks I’ve purchased in years, and McFadden’s insights into seasoning are invaluable, even for an experienced home cook.”
—Willamette Week
 
“A must-have cookbook that stands out from the crowd of vegetable-centric cookbooks. . . . This cookbook deserves to become a well-thumbed, vital addition to any kitchen.”

“McFadden’s debut cookbook is an invaluable resource for all things veggie.”
Booklist, starred review

“Glorious.”
Atlanta Journal-Constitution
 
“This is not a cookbook for coffee tables or artfully curated bookshelves! Its recipes demand to be tasted until the pages are dog-eared and sauce-splattered and stick together. Compulsory for the home cook.”
—Dan Barber, chef/co-owner of Blue Hill
 
“Joshua McFadden has the soul of a farmer, and his recipes are beautifully in tune with the seasons and the land.”
—Alice Waters, owner of Chez Panisse
 
“Joshua [understands] vegetables from the perspective of both a farmer and chef. His mouthwatering and terrific solutions . . . get the most out of vegetables from their beginning to their last act on our plates.”
—David Chang, chef/owner of Momofuku
