This book is worth the price for her pan-fried tofu recipe alone. Indisputably the BEST way to prepare tofu. Even people who are confirmed tofu haters love this method.
My only minor quibble with Didi is that she (page 219) eats fish on occasion and thus considers herself a "95% vegetarian". For a vegan, the suggested use of "fish sauce" in a vegetarian recipe book is annoying. However Didi does suggest alternatives - and her recipes are fine without it.
A good friend suggested that the lone negative reviewer may have substituted some other yeast for the nutritional yeast called for in many recipes, I'm sure she's correct. Folks, there is NO substitute, you need genuine nutritional yeast (mild and cheesy) - NOT brewer's yeast (bitter), and definitely not (shudder) baker's yeast!

The recipes in the book are fabulous. I have tried several recipes and they have all been a hit - the kind that will get your friends to ask for the recipe (even the non-vegetarian ones!)
The recipes are very simple yet creative. I have "read" the book cover to cover, and everything looks so delicious and interesting that I cannot wait to try more of them out. Sometimes I find when I buy a cookbook that I only wind up caring for a few recipes in the whole book. I don't think it'll be the case with this one!
I have bought several copies of the book to give to friends, meat eating ones included.

I purchased this book several months ago, in hopes of delightful recipes even non-vegitarians would love. Since then, out of all the meals I have prepared, about 50% of them were just plain disgusting!! Some of the recipes were so bad we couldnt even choke them down, and ended up throwing them away and heading for the nearest fast food.
If you are good in the kitchen, you could probably fix some of the recipes; As, I have thought of better things I could do the next time I prepared the meal... If there ever will be a next time!
On top of the gross outcome, most of the recipes call for unusual, hard to find, ingredients. She includes a glossary that recomends where to find the strangest ingredients (usually from various ethnic markets). Living in a small town, ethnic markets are few and far between... and definatly out of the way for saturday morning shopping.
On a lighter note: She does have alot of helpful tips and comments mixed in among the recipes, which i really enjoyed (I wish every cookbook included her commentary)...
And of the recipes that were good, they were really WONDERFUL!
I think Didi Emmons relies entirely too much on her cat's taste approval for her recipes... or perhaps she has burned out her human taster's tasteing sense and thats how she was able to publish these recipes.
I guess I would only recomend this book to experienced cooks, who live in large cities with several different ethnic markets around (Indian, Asian, Latin, Middle-Eastern, Mexican, etc. etc.).

I had been struggling with trying to pull together a meal for relatives who are non vegetarian - pulling out lots of different cookbooks to create a feast that they'd enjoy. I still love the creative aspects of pulling out lots of different cookbooks and creating a palate of flavors but this book makes it easier to do when I'm in a pinch. It has sections on appectizers, soups, snacks, casseroles, rice/noodles, etc as well as sections such as "intimate gatherings", "memorable mornings", etc. The recipes seem to all go well together so you can mix and match while still having diversity but not having to go through a bunch of different cookbooks.
