Containing more than 1,000 recipes, The Dukes Table: The Complete Book of Vegetarian Italian Cooking ($40.00, 352 pp) is an authentic cookbook emulating the vegetarian lifestyle of Enrico Alliata, a.k.a. the Duke of Salaparuta, who believed in transforming diet to repair one’s health. This collection goes beyond ordinary vegetarian meals and covers foods like crostini, casseroles, sauces, pies and sweets without losing the mouth-watering flavors of many decadent Italian dishes.
