Format: Hardcover
Although it focuses on meatless cookery, this impressive volume belongs in the kitchens of vegetarians and nonvegetarians alike. It is packed with practical information and clearly written, appealing recipes for simple everyday meals as well as for entertaining. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced cook, "Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" is bound to be a very useful addition to your library.
Also recommended: "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen", by Sonia Uvezian. If you are fond of Mediterranean food (as I am), you will find this book a revelation. It is filled with extraordinary vegetarian recipes, many of them not available elsewhere.

Format: Hardcover
This has become my culinary encyclopedia. I find myself referencing the text daily when preparing a meal. The vegetable/fruit information is very thorough - providing herbs & spices that combine well. It's also a dictionary of procedures & techniques, giving valuable information on anything from cooking rice to making crepes. Many of the recipes are fairly simple to prepare but surprisingly delicious. Recipes start from the very rudimentary, which makes it a primer for people who don't know much about cooking or food; but the information remains timeless and valuable to cooks of all levels. As a vegetarian, it has displaced Joy of Cooking as the number one guide in the kitchen.

Format: Hardcover
As an avid vegetarian home cook this book is the one I turn to again and again. Deborah Madison has a gift not only for presenting recipies with well balanced flavors and textures but for clearly explaining the fundamental building-blocks of cooking which enable to home chef to create culinary delights of his/her own. I was especially fond of the notes found in the margins throughout the book which describe presentation and menue guides.
My only dissappointment in Madison was the dessert section which, apon reading, didn't make my mouth water. However, I must confess that I have yet to make even one of her desserts and the literature might not do the final product justice.
If for some strange and unimaginable reason I had to toss all of my cookbooks but one, it would be a toss up between Vegitarian Cooking For Everyone and the Escoffier cook book both of which I find indespensible.
I highly reccomend this book to herbavores and carnivores alike.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book due to the great reviews and am very disappointed. I'm not a vegetarian but like vegetarian food and have a lot of veggie family & friends. Firstly the recipes use American weights/measure, which are not impossible to translate, but is rather irritating. Secondly, many of the ingredients are not easily available except in specialist shops in Europe, so you need to think on your feet & improvise. Thirdly, many of the recipes are more side dishes than main dishes, which is fine if you're a light eater or have time to prepare multiple options, but not for busy families. I've found much more substantial and tasty dishes on the internet or via other cookery writers such as Delia.

"Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone" by Deborah Madison is one the finest cookbook, vegetarian or otherwise, I've ever used. Ms. Madison writes with simple elegance. "Vegararian Cooking..." is easy to read and a joy to use. My first criteria for cooking is how available are the ingredients. Relying on fresh and commonly found ingredients Ms. Madison has put together a cookbook that anyone can use. As I read the book, my first impression was the receipes might not be overly flavorful, however, cooking techniques and creative use of subtle flavorings creates dishes which are richly satisfying without being overwhelming. I was especially glad to read her comment about sensible eating of fat. With no fear of the Fat Police, Ms. Madison's common sense approach to cooking and eating fat results in a fine balance between healthy eating and moderate indulgenge. This book should be in the kitchen of anyone who enjoys good eating. This is truly a first-rate cookbook for vegetarians and meat-eaters like.

Format: Hardcover
When I was 18 my mother gave me The Good Housekeeping Cookbook. This cookbook has been her guide most of her married life, and has served me well for more than ten years. Unfortunatly, as a mostly meatless eater I have struggled at times to "fix" the recipes so that they fit my lifestyle. For Christmas this year I was given Deborah Madison's book. I own many vegetarian cookbooks but they often contain complicated recipes that need a lot of prep time. Ms. Madison's cookbook will fill a long needed void by providing a reference cookbook, filled with classic reciepes and techniques, all geared towards a vegetarian lifestlye. It is a perfect book for a new vegetarian... or even my Mom! My Good Housekeeping Cookbook will always be a part of my kitchen shelf, but it will have a new permanent neighbor.

Format: Hardcover
‘The New Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone’ prepared by Deborah Madison is a new edition of popular vegetarian cookbook that is often taken as the benchmark in this kind of cooking, which for this occasion was complemented by a number of new recipes and additional content.

The vegetarian diet, although usually perceived as willing decision of particular person, is often motivated by health reasons, prevention or necessary need. And I some time ago found myself in a similar situation when I literally overnight had to change my life, especially food I eat which has previously been dominated by meat, especially fried. So I was forced to seek help on Internet and diet books on this topic which are widespread in the market, not always the best quality. But very quickly someone mentioned one particular good book - Deborah Madison’s ‘Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone’ that although released almost 20 years ago is still an endless source of great tips and recipes in which ever since I enjoy.

So when I heard that a new release is coming out that immediately attracted my attention - what I've seen so far, this is definitely a book that is worth the purchase if you have previously used the old edition, and especially if you've never had the pleasure to own this great book.

All the original material is still inside, while the book was expanded with the additional 200 recipes, but equally important, both for old and new recipes the way they are showed is changed what make recipes now presented in 2 columns more convenient to read.
