2.0 out of 5 stars Rather dull, 9 Jan. 2008
This review is from: Cook Vegan (Paperback)
I bought this book a few years ago. I am the owner of many vegan cook books and I have to say that unfortunately it is the one I use the least. I gave it two stars because I do agree the dishes are very economical - otherwise I would have given only one. The problem seems to be that the recipes never seem to have properly rounded flavours, and although this is sometimes easily rectified - perhaps by adding garlic and herbs I always felt that the author's taste buds must be a little limited. Eva batt's recipes are also very frugal but seem to work better than this. A plus point however is that there is nothing difficult to get hold of; no strange ingredients that cost a fortune - not always the case with vegan cookery. I would recommend Leah Leneman, The Viva La Vegan authors (also other American author's - they are definately best for deserts, get yourself some cup measures and then it's all so simple!) and our own Rose Elliot who is still unbeatable in terms of flavour and cost -all her vegetarian books have many vegan recipes and she also wrote Vegan feast. There are fantastic books out there and I am rarely disapointed. BUT I was with this one unfortunately.
