The much-anticipated cookbook from “New York’s Most Perfect Restaurant” (The New Yorker), features impossibly flavorful, vegetable-centric Italian dishes, from Fresh Pasta Squares with Fava Pesto to Meyer Lemon Risotto.
James Beard Award-winning chefs Jody Williams and Rita Sodi share the secrets of their beloved restaurant, which has become synonymous with New York City’s Greenwich Village. Since 2014, Via Carota has been a destination for food lovers, celebrities, and well-informed travellers because of its impeccable Italian fare. Emphasizing vegetables and seasonal cooking, the dishes that come out of Williams and Sodi’s kitchen are astonishing in their simplicity yet dazzling in their elegance.

Here are more than 140 recipes, including:
- Lasagna Cacio e Pepe
- Roasted Carrots with Spiced Yogurt and Pistachios
