Rebars was recommended as "the" vegetarian place to eat in Victoria by a top chef in eastern Canada. So, when I visited and found the food as good as recommended (excellent), it wasn't a stretch to purchase the cookbook. Vegetarian cuisine can be as varied and flavourful as other options. These recipes and the results exceeded my expectations. Excellent gourmet vegetarian meals every time, from a once a week chef (me). It has now become a gift item for others. Enjoy.
