    OneYetTwo's Note:

    “Feel free to try other vegetables not listed here, or for a shortcut, choose just two or three from the list. Sparkling water helps lighten the batter, and a mild vinegar, such as cider or rice wine, makes a good dipping sauce. For a delicious vegetarian entrée, leave out the shrimp.” This recipe is from The Good Cook by Anne Willan the founder of La Varenne Cooking School and I chose for the Cookbook Swap Cookbook! It sounds so delicious and I can’t wait to make it.
