Disappointing - Not a Vegan/Vegetarian Cookbook
on 12 March 2013
Not entirely a bad book, but not suitable for vegans, as many of the recipes contain dairy produce and meat stock, and it was a shame this wasn't stated before I bought it. It does state however, 'Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone' despite some recipes containing chicken stock, so not the full 75 recipes for me then! Presumably, you're meant to replace chicken stock with vegetable stock, but why put it in a vegetarian book in the first place? Also, you'll be hard-pushed to find some of the ingredients in the UK, unless you know where to look, and have the time and money to do so. For example, I don't have tamari, roasted peanut oil, Lan Chi Chilli Paste or Creamy Nut Butter Sauce to hand in my cupboard. Very frustrating. The quality of the paper and printing isn't that great either - the book is floppy and the paper flimsy. I went through the procedure to return the book, and have been given a refund - I am also allowed to keep the book - they don't want it back!! Ah well, it'll soon be car-booting weather..
