If like me you're trying to cut down on meat but always get stuck for vegetarian recipes which are quick and easy to make and taste delicious....this is the book for you! I made the butternut squash soup and the cheese & aubergine bake for friends at the weekend and they all devoured it. Similarly the sweetcorn fritters are ridiculously moreish so be warned. These really are simple easy recipes, simply explained and all accompanied by mouthwateringly gorgeous photographs. This is one book which won't be gathering dust!

One of the best cook books I own now. I received it as a gift from a grateful and hungry friend who had unexpectedly come home and I made the courgettes and spaghetti. It's simple, made with ingredients I had in my store cupboard and fridge and it tasted sublime. I got the recipe from the FTweekend magazine. I normally cook Indian vegetarian food and haven't made any of my usual stuff for the past week. I have not stopped cooking from this book and it has become something of an obsession. Yes the coconut rice pudding takes a lot longer than the stipulated 15 minutes. That's a minor quibble, according to me. What matters is the unfussy, simple, easy to follow recipes, with which you are able to lay out wholesome delicious food. The photographs are gorgeous as well. It is a great book to own as well as give as gifts. This is the best 10 £ gift I have ever received.

Having bought this book mainly because of the beautiful, mouth watering photos, I was delighted to find that it also contains some of my favourite recipes. I immediately tried them out this weekend and being a busy mother of three was relieved to find that they were not only increadibly tasty but also really easy to follow and well written up and the meals themselves are not too time consuming. There is something for everyone in this cookbook and though the title says vegetarian home cooking, this book would appeal to those who are not vegetarian just as much. I will definately be buying this book for my friends as gifts!

I bought the book because it has a lovely cover, and previous reviews were glowing. However, if you're already a bit of a cook and own vegetarian cookbooks (which is my case - I own quite a few (not to say many) cookbooks), don't bother with this one. As said by Thinkaloud, nice book to look at, but really nothing new as far as recipes are concerned. Usually, when I get a new cookbook, I flip through the pages and I can't wait to try some of the recipes. this was not the case with this one.
I wish all books would allow the "Look inside" feature, with at least table of content and index of recipes

As a graphic designer, I always go by the adage 'Always judge a book by it's cover'. Shallow, and crass, I know, but it nearly always is true when choosing cookbooks.
This one does not disappoint. The recipes are simple, and plain to understand, and go a long way towards recognising that vegetarian meals do not equal bland experiences.
I eat fish and meat, and really see in this cookbook that, if done well, one would not miss meat and fish if the right vegetarian dish was cooked and delivered.
I own about 30 cookbooks, but this is the first one that I have actually used, word for word. Try it. Corn fritters a must.

It is a lovely book beautifully presented the photos are particularily good and I enjoyed looking at them.The recipes are good but nothing I already haven't got.If the objective of the book was to present very ordinary everyday food with lovely photography then the book has achieved its goal.I would have liked a a few different things to try.

Mary McCartney's "Food" is an infuriating book because the photographs are beautiful but the recipes so carelessly written that they are useless. No one has tested the quantities of some ingredients (the Granola to go which never forms bars) or the timings (the rice pudding which will still be raw if the pudding rice or arboria rice versions are made). It just reeks of an agent selling an idea based on celebrity not culinary skill. Stick to the photos Mary and don't fake the food.Food
