Disappointing - not for busy families
on 1 September 2009
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.
