Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I never expect to like or make everything in a cook book and if four or five dishes enter my regular repertoire I regard it as a good purchase. So far this is looking like a positive addition to the arsenal.

The finish on the cover is quite wipeable (cook books not designed to stand up to the rigours of the kitchen are a real bugbear of mine!). It also has two big outer flaps to help you keep your place - again a practical bonus not all such books exhibit. The layout inside is simple and easy to follow - clear lists of ingredients and instructions on the left hand page, with photos on the right. I found it interesting that in some cases the dishes were photographed part-way made rather than ready to eat.

Flicking through it I found many things I wanted to try. The dishes are different enough not to be boring, but not so outlandish to put you off. And there is no requirement for any odd ingredients you wouldn't find in the shops of a reasonable sized town.

I might mention and rate a few of the things I have made so far. First were Carrot and Coriander Fritters with Halloumi and Sweet Lemon Dressing (P146). This was tasty enough but not I felt worth the faff. I'd score it 3/5. I probably won't make it again.The lemon dressing however, fantastic for all sorts of salads, I'd score a 5/5. I will have a jar of that sitting in my fridge all summer.

Next up was the Quick Soda Bread (Page 130) which I was quite skeptical about. This is the only recipe for Irish soda bread I have ever seen that involved rubbing in butter and adding sugar. Its getting on to being a scone mix rather than a bread one. My doubts were dispelled though when it came out of the oven - delicious! 4/5 score.

As a vegetarian I am always looking out for ideas for simple, tasty vegetarian meals. A lot of vegetarian cookbooks seem to rely too heavily on beans and curry for my family's tastes so I was pleasantly surprised with this book with it's olive stromboli, carrot and coriander fritters and grilled vegetable pizza. The recipes are appealing, with a mix of everyday and some more fancy or involved recipes, without using too many ingredients that you haven't heard of! And, if you are feeling adventurous, at the end of the book there are 'special' recipes including some submitted by guest chefs such as Skye Gungell's nectarine and tomato salad with buffalo mozzarella.

Apart from the recipes and usual conversion charts, there are a couple of pages on vegetables that are in season at different times of the year and the chapters are interspersed with 'how to' guides on things like how to grow sprouts (from beans or seeds, not the Brussels type!) or make yoghurt. It has a useful chapter at the end called 'basics' with lots of things like dressings, sauces, flavoured butters etc which makes them more accessible than when they are buried in another recipe.

It is printed on a matt paper rather than the usual glossy stuff, the photography is well done and the cover is contemporary and not unattractive making it a good choice for a gift or maybe even a coffee table book.

I love this book. I'm an omnivore who eats a lot of vegetarian food and has many vegetarian friends so it's great to have a book that has helped me extend my repertoire. I've found the book quite inspiring - it's beautifully photographed and each double page spread has the recipe on one side and the photo on the opposing page. The book is organised into the following sections and I've noted the recipes I've tried:

Introduction - covering store cupboard items, protein equivalents in meat and vegetarian food, seasonal eating list, famous vegetarians and notes on essentials
Breakfast and Brunch - Almond Milk and maple porridge, mango and cashew smoothie, apricot and almond granola are recipes I've liked
Small Bites - Chard and Brie mini muffins, asparagus and tomato frittatas and puy lentil hummus have all been successes
Big salads - Giant couscous salad with preserved lemon and charmoula, Quinoa with parsley pesto, cranberries, hazelnuts and mushrooms and grilled caesar salad have been relished more than once
Soups - Vietnamese hot and sour soup, Gazpacho Andaluz are lovely
Bread - The quick soda bread is delicious
Fast- Tamarind tempeh with sesame noodles and shredded greens, carrot and coriander fritters with halloumi and sweet lemon dressing and crispy 5-spice tofu are all good
One Pots and Bakes - Oven baked pea, barley and broad bean frittata
Special - oooh nothing...must try Tom Pemberton's pearl barley, mushroom and butternut squash and pear and parmesan tarte tatin
Basics - Flavoured butters, pestos, slow roast tomatoes, carmoula dressing, ginger and lime dipping sauce
Menu ideas

It's been really good to leaf through this again and pick out the dishes I want to try next - look out for the update

This is a generously-sized book. One thing this does is to give the illustrations the space they deserve to communicate the deliciousness and texture of the finished dishes. Good photography `sells' recipes more than anything else, and this book abounds with beautiful full-page images of every recipe.

Now, I don't know about you but for me a recipe book is useful if it gives me half a dozen new things that I enjoy and would want to eat again and this book certainly does that. I'm not a vegetarian, but the rest of my family are and I have no problem if a meal contains no meat. In fact it's nice to get away from the meat-with-everything once in a while, so I have no doubt that carnivores will also enjoy many of the dishes contained within these pages.

I like that it contains information about nutrition and how to obtain sufficient protein and the other essential nutrients usually ingested from the meat portion of the diet. It seems that 200g of peanuts has the same amount of protein as 170g of beef steak, and 240g of red lentils are equivalent to two fat pork sausages.

If you are like me and enjoy eating fruit and vegetables when it's in season (rather than have it air-freighted from the other side of the world) there's an extensive list of what to look out for in the shops at the appropriate time of year.

The book begins with a look at The Essentials: mushrooms & herbs; vegetables & fruit; legumes, nuts, seeds & oils; rice & grains; and dairy & eggs - giving out a little basic information to enhance your use of these foods. The rest of the book has recipes grouped into convenience: quick meals, snacks, baked... Towards the back of the book is a nice little section on dressings and sauces along with a selection of menu ideas.

The recipes are well laid out and the instructions easy to follow. The author is clearly passionate about enjoying food and sharing that pleasure with others.

Nice book. I recommend it.
