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.

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!

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.

As a long standing veggie it's always good to get some everyday inspiration to get you out of a rut. This is what I was hoping for from Food. It does give inspiration but falls very very short on taste. I should have known better when the first recipe I cooked contained only 1 tsp of soya sauce for seasoning/flavour!

If your everyday repertoire has gone a bit stale, and particularly if you want some inspiration re soya products then it is ok maybe borrow it from the library/a friend rather than buy it. If you're new to vegetarian cooking then I would recommend turning to something like River Cottage Veg Everyday instead.

Format: Kindle Edition
Here is a colourful book that sets out to provide a range of "home cooking" recipes for vegetarians as well as, perhaps providing a bit of an introduction to meat-free eating for those who still have rather outdated views towards vegetarianism.

In case you think the name might be familiar, you are right - Mary McCartney grew up with vegetarian cooking, worked with her mother on her range of vegetarian cookbooks and has been a consultant on the brand for Linda McCartney Foods for over a decade. After a brief introduction the reader is presented with various "cooking notes" that provide a few hints and tips that might be of most use to the "vegetarian virgin" and then it is straight on to the recipes.

But fear not. This is a book for cooking, not campaigning.

The recipes themselves are split into a few chapters for breakfast & brunch; snacks & sandwiches; soups, salads & starters; mains; basics & sides and desserts and baking. Everything is surrounded by a wide range of inspirational, scene-setting photographs and the design is relatively clean, fresh and accessible. It is particularly good to see quality food photography as this can help sway over the more sceptical, reluctant reader to try vegetarian food and see that it is not just mushed up vegetables and boring soups (!).

There is a good, broad range of different dishes and, of course, at times "meat substitutes" come into play such as the Shepherd's Pie. A book like this could be particularly of use where one or more people in the family follow a vegetarian diet and yet other family members can still eat relatively familiar dishes together without needing to make two versions! Vegetarian mince is never going to be meat mince, but nonetheless...
