'Nadine's cuisine is colourful, exotic and highly inventive, representing the very best of contemporary vegetarian cooking. Secrets from a Vegetarian Kitchen contains 100 of her mouth-watering recipes.
There is also a description of the main ingredients and an account of the essential cooking techniques....'

160 shiny pages, split over chapters:-

1. Tales from a small kitchen
2. How to cook a vegetable
3. Unusual ingredients
4. Basic recipes
5. Soups
6. Starters
7. Salads and vegetables
8. Main courses
9. Desserts

with a full index.

Each recipe is well written with an opening relevant note, the number of servings, list of ingredients and a clear method.
I think it would be fair to say that this delightful book is a little sparse on photography with only 20 double-page spreads altogether, but they are truly mouth-watering photgraphs!

Recipes include:-

* Harira
* Pumpkin Soup with Spinach
* Vegetable Sushi
* Leek and Almond Terrine
* Olive Focaccia
* Braised Fennel
* Orange and Black Olive Salad
* Filled Mushrooms in their Golden Cage
* Mushroom Wellington
* Spinach Gnocchi with Tomato Sauce
* Couscous Royale
* Grain Dauphinois
* Layered Vegetable Filo Pie
* Strawberry Risotto
* Pastilla
* Tofu Marsala
* Rose Petal Queen Dream
* Chocolate Truffle Cake
* Baklawa with Rose Water
* Individual Crumbles with Crème Anglaise
* Lemon Tart
* Crème Brlée

5.0 out of 5 stars New and exotic 7 Jan 2000
By Jasmine Guha - Published on Amazon.com
This book contains some really original and exotic recipes. The ones I've tried are really good. This book however is really for those who like to cook a lot and also like to try out something new. Those who are beginner vegetarians, or looking for some basic, simple recipes should look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Easy to Succeed With the Recipes 29 Jan 2001
By Sheila Armitage - Published on Amazon.com
Unlike some exotic cookbooks, this one is simple to use, and immediately banishes any fear of the unknown realms it leads one through. The recipes are practical and turn out as they should. They are clearly written, not overwhelming and the format and photos really help readers to succeed, thus making the book practical rather than a coffeetable book.
The author blends flavors in delectable ways, for example the cardammon and coconut ice-cream recipe sounded inedible to me, but the actual icecream was so delicious that I have had many requests for it. (Special gadgets and ice-cream makers were not called for in this recipe, which made it accessible to cooks with basic kitchen tools.)
