Format: Paperback
This book has been one of my cookery bibles for the past 10 years, and is now completely falling apart from overuse! It is a wonderful compendium of vegetarian recipes and cooking techniques from Greece to Japan, written in an engaging style by Madhur Jaffrey. Many of the recipes are prefaced by a short but fascinating descriptions of the background of the recipe; these make it something you can read as a book in its own right and really help to place the recipes in context.

Some of the recipes might seem a little daunting to people who aren't used to cooking with spices etc, but they are actually mostly pretty straightforward. There are a few ingredients that might be difficult to find for people who live in less multicultural areas, but the majority can be found in any large supermarket these days. Madhur has, in many cases, substituted some of the more obscure ingredients in original recipes for things found more easily in the West (but usually mentions what the "authentic" ingredients should be). If you do find it hard to get some of the ingredients, it's worth looking into online mail order companies; it's surprising what you can get on the internet nowadays! But you'd also be surprised how many you can find in the supermarket. If you don't currently use many spices and other international ingredients you'll probably have to buy a few more, but you won't have to invest in a massive new spice collection all in one go, just buy what you need for each recipe and you'll build it up gradually. The more you cook these recipes, the more you will learn what can be substituted for the more unusual ingredients (or what can be omitted altogether).

I love this book,and it,like, Paddington Bear,has the stains of all our favourite dishes.Far more detail on obscure vegan and vegetarian foods than in any other book I've seen.How to make your own tofu,Masala dosa's,lime pickle,its a massive book and if you are a veggy and havent read it then prepare for a delightful world to open for you....

Format: Paperback
I have been vegetarian for 25 years, this is the best cookery book I have seen in that time. There's lots for vegans too. From Greece to Japan, all very clear recipes with amusing and interesting comments from Madhur....I really can't recommend it enough, if you're new to vegetarian/ vegan cookery this is the best book to buy!!!

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By S. Williams on 18 Jan 2010
Format: Paperback
I bought this book about 20yrs ago, and it remains a favourite. So many unique and marvellous recipes. A world of food. Masala Dosa, iddlies, gram flour pancakes, south Indian coconut chutney, carrot and mustard seed salad, mushrooms with sesamme seeds, Haak (my all time favourite-greens with mustard oil, chilli and asafetida). Recently I revisited some of the recipes I first used to cook, like the chinese stew, and the flavour took me back to when we first moved into our house. If you are vegetarian then you need this book like no other. 100% superb.

Format: Paperback
This is a good all round vegetarian cookery book for those that want something other than a cheese based meal. It manages to transform even the most basic vegetables and although you need to invest in a range of spices in order to get the most from the book, it will be money well spent. I would particularly recommend the cabbage and tomato receipe

Can only endorse everyone else's comment. Have had this book for over 30 years and it is still frequently used. Very spicy delicious chick-peas - the name of this recipe says it all!

Don't buy this book if you want a cook book with fancy photos! Do buy this book if you like vegetarian food and cooking. It is full of excellent recipes, mostly easy to put together, different and interesting. It is not a book for beginners, but if you have a well stocked kitchen of herbs, spices etc then you'll love it. I have owned this book for 20+ years and just bought one for my Brother and Sister in Law for Christmas. It's a hit!
