5.0 out of 5 stars Very useful recipes. Fresh and vibrant tastes. 29 Jun 2011
By doublegone TOP 500 REVIEWER
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than just beans and curry! 24 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit confused about its readership...!! 22 Sep 2011
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
With its attractively homespun cover art, emphasis on "fresh, seasonal ingredients", and its handy "how-to's" scattered throughout the book (how to make yogurt, how to make tofu, how to grow sprouts...) this book looks at first glance like the kind of cookbook that would appeal to the your average veggie cook who wants to eat well and be healthy.

But no. The recipes are not only frequently complex and difficult to follow, they demand the kind of cordon bleu skills that most ordinary people have neither the time, the equipment nor the skill to master. Alice Hart calls herself a "food stylist", and this is what a chef of my acquaintance would self-deprecatingly call "cheffy" food - the sort of dishes with names that go on for half a paragraph. They're heavily constructed, rather pretentious, fine in a smart restaurant or hotel but out-of-place in a book aimed at the general public - especially if you happen, as I do, to live in a rural area. Now, I have plenty of access to the "fresh, seasonal ingredients" mentioned on the cover, because I grow them - but no access to a fancy supermarket or delicatessen. So although I can do you a gorgeous basket of ripe tomatoes or luscious courgettes right now, I'm a bit stuck for pecorino shavings or ras el hanout. To give Alice Hart her due, she does sometimes suggest alternatives for the more unlikely ingredients - you can use spinach if you can't find betel leaves, although rice vinegar is as out of the question for me as the Chinese black vinegar she really wants me to use for her dumplings with dipping sauce. She will also reluctantly let you off if you decide that life is just too short to peel a grape, but I still felt guilty that I possess neither a terrine mould nor a griddle pan - both mainstays of the recipes here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous but rather daunting 4 Mar 2012
After owing the book for several weeks, staring longingly the beautiful pictures and wishing I had the complex list of ingredients on the list or the time to make enough of the complimentary dishes, I finally made something. I made the pot sticker dumplings, little heavenly gyozas that wowed my friends and caused us to eat gluttonous quantities of them.

Following this success I cannot wait to tackle some of the delicious summer salads and will definitely be making my own yoghurt soon. Most importantly its made me fall back in love with vegetarian cookery and for that alone it is worth the cost.

Its also worth noting it has a great list of basic things like salsa verde and mayonnaise for those who have not tried making their own before and I really admire the make it from scratch because its easy and worth it attitude of the book

Lovely graphic, nicely photographed and professional friendly style of writing through ou.

Brilliant but I would recommend to the relatively competent cook who knows what they can substitute. I think if you were less experienced you may be daunted by some recipes.
