Could convert the most hardened carnivore
on 3 July 2010
As a committed carnivore married to a vegetarian, what to have for dinner can lead to a bit of an argument. Vegetarian food can be so bland and uninspiring, and we've wasted plenty of money over the years on veggie cookbooks that have since been gathering dust on the shelves. Thankfully, Sam Stern has filled a much-needed gap in the veggie cookbook market. This is a book that's chock full of delicious and easy to make recipes with photos that make you want to rush to the kitchen and get the pans out. It's not worthy, either; just straightforward decent food that happens to contain no meat. We've had it a few weeks now, and both of us have really enjoyed working through lots of the recipes. A firm favourite is the Chinese aubergine dish, as well as the Mexican salad. The curries are delicious and any of the soups make an easy standby meal for after work. Would recommend wholeheartedly to meat eaters and non-meat eaters alike.
