5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the effort, 8 May 2006
This review is from: Pure Vegetarian (Paperback)
This book contains the most delicious, exciting and inspiring vegetarian cooking I've seen in a long time and all the recipes I've made from it have turned out impressively.

These are not recipes you'll be cooking when you come home for a hard day at work (except for a few of the fantastic pasta dishes) but are excellent for a home-cooked meal with someone special or just a weekend treat. It's exciting to be able to cook restaurant standard food yourself, and although the recipes are not difficult, I would not give this to a new or nervous. You do not need any kind of cooking qualification, but this book will not teach you how to cook if you do not already know.

The book doesn't use many unobtainable ingredients, so long as you have a good wholefood shop and aren't reliant solely on a small supermarket. It is also well-written: clear recipes without all the autobiography so many chefs are fond of.

I'd happily recommend this book to any reasonably confident vegetarian cook who sometimes wants to pull out all the stops and see what marvels they can create
