As always Linda has come up with some great veggie dishes to tickle our palats. Variety is so important if one excludes meat.

This is a great book - with lots of recipes that offer variety, and yet others that thankfully tell you how to do basic stuff like make a pizza dough. I really have found this very useful over the years in the kitchen - and am still convinced it is yet properly to come into fashion - I found out today from a very good friend of mine that the average pig divided by the average pork joint size equals fifteen. In other words, I have been told that fifteen people who eat a proper joint of pork for one meal will eat the main part of the whole pig that has had to be raised and fed for years. Clearly, there is something that isn't making sense!! If the amount of money needed for testing meat products properly is added onto the amount it must cost to raise the produce - the whole situation can be seen to look even more seriously worrying/improbable. Moreover, people who claim to eat meat because they say that it may be healthy to do so clearly do do a lot of other unhealthy things - a lot of them still smoke or drink alcohol, for instance...so again, something isn't particularly logical about the habit. I recommend this book not just because of all that, however, but because there is some really good food suggested within its pages.

Excellent cookbook to own! 1 July 2000
By "laurafromri" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I am a vegan, and finding anything delicious that doesn't include some form of tofu is sometimes hard. This cookbook includes many ethnic, vegan recipes and photos to go with them. Instructions are easy, even my 9-year-old daughter helps with the preparation. We made the Chinese aromatic vegetable stir-fry last night, and it was marvelous. Even my mom, who is not veggie, thought it looked and smelled delicious. The world has lost a wonderful talent in Linda.

A great addition to any cookbook collection 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Linda's recipes are unique in that they are obviously tested and tested again. I am not a great cook (average to good maybe) and I have had many failures in the kitchen by following poor recipes... having cooked a good many of Linda's recipes I haven't had one failure. This food is great!!! Flavorful, easy to make recipes take the anxiety out of preparing a great meal. Also, I recommend this for meat eaters, not just vegetarians, you'll be pleasently surprised. This book (as well as her others) has taught me so many new cooking techniques and educated me on the use of vegetables and everyday herbs and spices. It's too bad she isn't around to do more. I miss her for her cookbooks alone.

Excellent Multi-Ethnic Cookbook - Absolutely Fabulous! 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Yet another truly excellent cooking tome from an inspiring woman, Linda McCartney shows once again how easy it is to prepare easy and delicious meals with a flair. This book is a must have for those who like to sample cuisines from other cultures, and you absolutely don't miss the meat in these dishes. From the stunning photography to the mouth-watering menu ideas that make party planning a snap, there is something for every taste. I have had rave reviews over every recipe I prepared from this and her other cook books. We have lost a true treasure in Linda McCartney.

Excellent tasty and unique veggie cuisine 16 Nov 2002
By Kris D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I received this book as a gift and after looking through it, I was excited to try the recipes. There is a great selection of different recipes from all around the world. What makes this book special is that the recipes include the traditional Italian and Chinese cuisine, but Linda goes beyond the traditional to include Indian, African and Thai cuisines. I truly enjoy the hot and sour soup, for example. The photographs are brilliant in color and are vivid enough to make your stomach growl by just looking at them. Linda uses olive oil generously. Although there is not a nutritional analysis, it is easy to adapt the recipes to a healthy diet, which I do with great success. I truly enjoy this book.

Around the World in 200 Recipes 14 Nov 2007
By Amaranth - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Linda McCartney on Tour" had me from hello. When I first saw it at my college bookstore in Santa Fe, I often perused its pages with its delicious recipes and vibrant pictures. Finally, I received it as a Christmas present. It has served its purpose well. The Chinese aromatic vegetable stir-fry is wonderfully simple, perfect those days when all I've got are veggies and spices. The Thai sweet&sour cucumber salad was a hit at a Buddhist potluck. The African vegetable soup with coconut is deliciously exotic, as is the Tanzanian banana and yam stew.

The late,great Linda McCartney offers accessible,simple and delicious recipes that put Rachael Ray's 30 Minute Meals to shame. She respects her readers; one doesn't need to cut a deal with Starbucks or have rock star riches to make these recipes. Going beyond the usual Chinese/Indian/Thai vegetarian cuisines,she also has African and Caribbean cuisine.

"Linda McCartney On Tour" cooks up perfect meals! It's an essential for any kitchen.
