5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, I salute you Mark!, 18 Sept. 2012

This review is from: How to Cook Everything: Vegetarian: Simple Meatless Recipes for Great Food (Hardcover)
Wow, if you want to learn how to cook any vegetable (as well as various types of grains, eggs and cheeses) then this book will contain everything you need to know. The title says it all really. This book is a massive compendium of techniques, information and recipes. It is written in such a way that you get a feel for the author's down to earth personality and he encourages you to experiment too. There are many variations of each recipe and lots and lots of suggestions for what to serve each thing with, what goes well with what, and to top it all off, they are easy to make too, many meals only require a few ingredients which are easy to find. If you are a vegan, there are tips for how to veganise as well as many inherently vegan recipes.

So, if you wanted to know how to make a fritter, how to braise something, grill something, chop, steam, bake, roast, fry....the technique will be explained clearly. If you got chard in your veg box and got stuck for what to do, there would be a simple recipe for cooking it. If you want inspiration for making a soup, there are tons of suggestions to help you find the right one to suit your mood. I can't explain how BIG this book is and how much knowledge is contained within it.

If you want a book full of glossy pictures and fancy dinner party recipes this isn't for you, but if you want a really excellent reference book to learn about different foods and techniques, with hundreds of recipes that are simple and tasty for everyday use, then you will like this. It's a bit like going on a cookery course when you read this! Very useful to add to my already enormous collection of cookbooks.
