This review is from: The Cranks Bible: A Timeless Collection of Vegetarian Recipes (Paperback)
This is a wonderful collection of easy to prepare vegetarian dishes that taste amazing. Nadine Abensur transforms simple vegetables like potatoes and spinach into something heavenly. This is what vegetarian food is all about ... dishes that make you want to make them again and again and again. Some of my favourites are the beetroot risotto, spinach soup, asparagus and cep tart, and the celeriac and porcini gratin. I love this book because all the dishes I have tried are lovely and if you're cooking for someone else you can be guaranteed that whatever you choose to make from this book will impress your guest without fail. Gone are the days of boring, bland veggie food; Nadine Abensur's book changes the taste of lentils, tofu and cabbage to something spectacular and special.
What makes it special is not just the amazing variety of recipes; it really is a truly global melting pot of the best French, Italian, Russian, Moroccan, Indian, American, and Japanese cookery. But it is Nadine's passion for good cuisine that stands out. This is food writing at its best. The sensual language and succulent photographs make this a book to savour and enjoy even if you don't have time to cook.
