I taught myself to cook Indian cuisine from this book. Although I now own a number of vegetarian cook books, I find myself returning to "World of the East.." again and again. I found the glossary of exotic ingredients extremely helpful. One of her recipes, apricot chutney, is a mainstay in my holiday gift baskets. The chutney has even been mistaken for "Major Grey's" before. I would recommend this book to anyone with a little cooking experience who wants to broaden their cooking horizons.

When I lived in a household with cooking shared among 7 adults, and over 5 linear feet of cookbooks, over half our meals came from this book. She's accessible and reliable: the worse recipe we tried was merely "good", and most were very good to excellent! Most recipes are easy, although some are only for the ambitious. My only complaint: it's a paperback, so the binding will fall apart from the heavy use you're likely to give this cookbook.

I am a fan of Eastern food. And since I am currently living in a more rural environment, it is often difficult to go out to a restaurant to satisfy my cravings for intense flavors and spices. This book helps me overcome my cravings. The ingredients are generally easy to find (even in the country) at the grocery store or health-food store, and the recipes are not too difficult to prepare. There are some elaborate recipes, but the author recommends that they be prepared for a special occasion. Most can be made on an everyday basis, after work.

There is a wonderful variety of ethnic groups in this cookbook, varying from Japanese and Chinese to Persian to Phillipino to Indian....on and on. A great book for people who are both new or experienced to this type of cuisine. And, everything I've made from this cookbook has been delicious so far. Try it!

This is an interesting cookbook packed full of tasty recipes from across the East. My only criticism is that some recipes are unnecessarily extensive and complicated. For example some of the Indian dishes really do not need so many ingredients to be authentic and delicious. Also there are some shortcuts not mentioned that could definitely save you time without impacting on quality and authenticity! Other than that there are many interesting recipes in here and I would recommend this book.

A wonderful cookbook filled with authentic vegetarian and vegan Indian cuisine. A great source for rich, satisfying meatless dishes that prove that adhering to a cruelty-free diet does not mean eating bland, tasteless food. A standard in our household.
