Book Description

24 Sep 1998
In her exciting follow-up to LINDA'S KITCHEN, Linda McCartney sets out on a gastronomic journey to discover the very best vegetarian dishes of the world's major cuisines. With such a wide variety of produce now available in supermarkets, there is every opportunity to bring the flavours of the world into our own kitchens. From east to west, north to south, each country has its own distinctive ingredients and style of cooking, but they all have one thing in common - each produces delicious, healthy vegetarian dishes. The great European cookery traditions are surprisingly distinctive: Greece with its feta cheese and filo pastry, neighbouring Italy whose pizza and pasta have been adopted by the world and Spain where the cooking style is still strongly influenced by its Arabic past . The Far Eastern countries offers a wealth of vegetarian fare; the use of fresh ginger, coconut milk and exotic spice blends gives their cuisines a very distinct character. Linda's inspiring new collection contains over 200 innovative and simple meat-free recipes suitable for the newcomer to vegetarian cookery or established veggies looking to spice up their culinary repertoire!

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent cookbook to own! 1 July 2000
By "laurafromri" - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addition to any cookbook collection 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Multi-Ethnic Cookbook - Absolutely Fabulous! 14 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent tasty and unique veggie cuisine 16 Nov 2002
By Kris D - Published on
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars More interesting than most vegetarian cookbooks 24 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on
I'm not a vegetarian, but did find some good recipes in this book. For once, a cookbook isn't dessert heavy. There is a good mixture of main meals, side dishes, and sandwiches, as well as sauces. An introductory section gives suggestions for stocking a vegetarian pantry. There's also a brief overview of nutritional needs. Since these recipes are from around the world, the variety is refreshing and different. My only caveat is that I expected more recipes for the price. The books has about 200 for the price of [$]. I don't know if we're paying for the glossy paper, the beautiful colored pictures, or Linda's name.
