Vegetable Ragout with Fresh Herbs

Jeremiah Tower began his cooking career at Berkeley's Chez Panisse in 1972, and in 1984 opened San Francisco's once-celebrated Stars. By the mid-1980s he had become one of America's first celebrity chefs—posing for a Dewar's ad and pausing for autographs.If you don't have time to prepare all of the vegetables called for in Tower's ragout recipe, select at least three, making sure to use a variety of colors.
