You don't have to be vegetarian to enjoy these recipes! The book is not only beautiful, but very useful. It should be considered by anyone who wants to reset their metabolism, control type 2 diabetes and needs easy, inexpensive,tasty and healthy ways of handling 90% of the food we buy. Possibly one of my " Best Buys"

This is a great buy for vegetarians! July 13 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book about 3 months ago, and it is a great cookbook. It has a wide variety of recipes from all over the world, from lasagna to tofu curry. There is also a full-color picture of each item in the book, making it easy to scan for a new recipe idea.

The best vegetarian cookbook Aug. 19 2000
By Ava C. Han - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are so many vegetarian cookbooks out there. I first found this book in the community college's library. I tried 4 dishes from this book, and they tasted great. I had to buy it. I recommend it to my friend, and she bought one too. All the dishes are healthy and flavory, and you don't even remember they are meatless.

The Best Cookbook (Vegetarian or Otherwise) Nov. 25 1999
By Teresa Valentine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the only vegetarian cookbooks I still use (my husband and I are no longer vegetarian). The recipes are absolutely excellent! They are easy to follow and taste really good. I would highly recommend this cookbook to anyone who likes a lot of variety in their diet!

Great Vegetarian Cookbook July 22 2008
By T. Brooks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best vegetarian cookbooks. Roz Denny has a great selection of varied recipes. The beautiful colored pictures of both processes and plated results help also. We've tried many of the recipes; there has never been a bad one. We love the "mushroom gougere", "spiced Indian cauliflower soup", hhmm! When I serve the "couscous aromatique", guests think I've made something very exotic. I even took the more unusual Parsnip Pie to a Christmas Charles Dickens party where we brought authentic 1800's period dishes; it was enjoyed and few people eat parsnips. I buy this book for family and friends. Roz Denny is a talented chef. Bon Appetit.

Nice book, varied ethnic recipes June 20 2006
By Amalfi Coast Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A passionate home cook that has been honing her cooking skills for the last 25 years writes this review. My favorite cookbooks are "The Professional Chef" by the Culinary Institute and "Culinary Artistry". With more than 500 cookbooks in my collection I am usually disappointed in my recent cookbook acquisitions. This book is a wonderful addition to any cookbook library for those that are interested in vegetarian cooking. This book is a vegetarian cookbook but does include vegan recipes as well.

The book is subdivided as follows:

Soups and Appetizers
Light Lunches and Suppers
Main Courses
Salad and Vegetable Dishes
Parties and Picnics
Virtually Vegetarian
Desserts and Breads

This cookbook provides recipes from many different cuisines. There are Indian, Indonesian, Irish, English, American, Italian, Greek, Russian, Thai and French to mention a few. If you are a looking for a cookbook that offers a wide variety of vegetarian recipes this is a nice book.

Each recipe has a full color photo provided on the page opposite the recipe. The authors also include smaller photos of some of the intermediate steps in the recipes.

Some of the measures are imprecise. For example "grate a small piece of ginger." However, since I always season to taste this is not a big issue for me.

The specific recipes that I have found to be very good are: The Chunky Vegetable Paella (vegan), Multi-mushroom Stroganoff, Persian Rice and Lentils with a Tahdeeg, Ratatouille Tart (vegan when you leave out the Mozzarella), and Red Onions Stuffed with Feta and Pine Nuts.

Overall I would recommend this book to anyone that wants to add more meatless meals into their life, or anyone that is considering becoming a vegetarian. The dishes are varied enough that you will not miss the meat. Do not buy this book if you "Vegetarian and Vegetable Cooking" by Christine Ingram and Roz Denny, the recipes are duplicates of that book. Same recipes and same photos.
