Format: Hardcover
I am a vegan who loves to cook and this book is one I turn to often. The way she writes is interesting and informative, including lots of information about how the cuisines of different regions has developed, and the recipes are *excellent*.
Designing menus is easy with this book, as it is simple to look up a type of cooking in the back (such as 'Moroccan' or 'Italian' of 'Middle Eastern') and just go from there. It is just as easy to turn to the section of the book that deals with the ingredients you already have on hand - so if you've got chickpeas, spinach and potatoes in the cupboard you can just look them up and find lots of delicious options.
I continue to use and peruse this book all the time, and can't say enough good things about it.

I became vegetarian (not vegan, yet) 10 years ago, love food and cooking, and own at least 50 cookbooks. This book has become one of the 6 food-related books that I use the most. They are (not in any particular order):

1. Company's Coming Meatless Cooking

(I have the French version, so names and page numbers may differ.)

I wouldn't recommend it for vegans, but very good for a beginning vegetarian or someone looking for old favourites. Lots of good old comfort foods that I missed, such as "Roti Favori (like meatloaf) p. 82, "Boulettes Fantaisie" (Fancy 'meatballs'?) p. 84, "Simili boulettes de Viande" (pork-style 'meatballs') p.86 and the delicious quiche p. 94. I was less enchanted with some of the recipes, such as "Pate au Presque-Poulet" (nearly-chicken pate) p. 76, which I found rather unflavourful, and the "Saucisses au Tofu" (Tofu sausages) p. 74 which wouldn't hold together, but that's ok. Maybe I should have rated it 3 instead of 4, but the recipes I like, I use all the time! Oh, and the "Dessert au Fromage et a l'Ananas" (cheese and pineapple dessert) p. 32, is marvellous!

2. The All New Purity Cookbook

Not vegetarian, but good old-fashioned Canadian comfort-food which I modify to make vegetarian. I use it mostly for baking, but also for a variety of non-desserts such as the great "Savoury Beef Stew" (I use firm tofu instead). The pineapple "Upside-Down Cake" is one of my favourites.

3. Madhur Jaffrey's "World Vegetarian"

My absolute favourite so far. Though I haven't tried the popular Moosewood or Deborah Madison books, yet, I can hardly imagine anything beating this!

I love this book! Bought it for myself, as part of an effort to eat vegetarian 6 days a week. One of the hardest things in reducing meat in our diet was coming up with fast and easy things to prepare on a weeknight. This book has many simple recipes that don't require a million wacky ingredients or 2 hours of prep. I love the recipes that come from the authors friends and family, and are the kind of "every day" meatless meals that people actually eat around the world. Also, many of the recipes are nicely filling, even for my 6'2" hockey playing husband. Eating vegetarian shouldn't mean being hungry! Highly recommend this one for anyone --- your tastebuds will thank you :-)

Format: Hardcover
So far not really impressed with this book. Methinks many people are giving this 5 stars because of the reputation of the author. In my opinion, the higher the reputation, the higher the expectation and this does not live up to expectation or PRICE. Now, I'm no expert chef (otherwise I wouldn't need a cookbook - der) but I'm not completely useless in the kitchen either. I have attempted three recipes out of this book, one of them twice, and each time it has resulted in a fairly unappertizing meal. One reason I bought this book was because of the extensive bean recipes but as far as I can tell each bean recipe is either meant to be a watery flavourless stew or the instructions are wrong. Take for example 'White Beans with Rosemary' on p54. It tells you to soak the beans overnight and then cook them in 3.5 cups of water. If you do this you get a watery stew with the beans reduced to mush. If you don't soak them first the result is better but the flavour is still extremely bland. The other recipes I have tried have not been particularly better - I followed her instructions to the letter on a stir fry (against my best instincts) and got essentially raw dry vegies.... I have not had this problem with other cookbooks... There are also VERY few pictures to compare your recipes - these are very important to give an idea of what the dish is supposed to look like.
On the good side - there is heaps of useful information and I expect to keep the book for that alone. I will occasionally attempt other recipes from it because there might be some worthwhile ones but overall:
Start with three stars. Add one for the information. Subtract half each for the lack of pictures and the price. Subtract one for the poor recipes and you get two stars.
Oh, and to those people who have given this 5 stars without attempting the recipes.....don't you think if you gonna review a recipe book you should try a recipe first...?

I am a big fan of Madjur- I like the way she presents her recipes in an easy to understand way. I love how she shares little stories of why she loves certain dishes, childhood or travel memories, who she cooks certain dishes for, accompaniments and variations. I have cooked many of her recipes and it is rare when one is lackluster. I like this book a lot.
I only miss pictures in this book!
