In An Everlasting Meal, the chapter How to Stride Ahead urges you to cook all of your vegetables as soon as you bring them home. We often think that vegetables should be fresh hours before we cook and serve them, but this is not a necessity.
This video illustrates that aspect of the chapter as Tamar cleans, cuts and roasts the vegetables she has brought back from the farmer's market (see How to Stride Ahead - Part 1). The vegetables are then placed in jars and can be kept for meals throughout the week.
Another in a series of videos being done to celebrate the release of Tamar Adler's An Everlasting Meal which is being released by Scribner on October 18th.

"An Everlasting Meal is beautifully intimate, approaching cooking as a narrative that begins not with a list of ingredients or a tutorial on cutting an onion, but with a way of thinking... Tamar is one of the great writers I know - her prose is exquisitely crafted, beautiful and clear-eyed and open, in the thoughtful spirit of M. F. K. Fisher. This is a book to sink into and read deeply."
- Alice Waters
