Nouveau V: The New Renaissance of Vegan and Vegetarian Cuisine encompasses the many facets of vegan and vegetarian cookery. Chef Beverly Kumari, along with Executive Chef JJ Layton, Executive Chef Abdellah Aguenaou, and Executive Chef Douglas De la Reza, have reinvented “art culinaire” with their gourmet spin on vegan- and vegetarian-friendly recipes. Each of the meatless recipes are developed in line with the same gourmet techniques used in classical and modern-day cuisine.
