5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, inspiring, involved, 16 Dec 2011
This review is from: For The Love of Food: Vegetarian Recipes from the Heart (Hardcover)
Having bought Denis Cotter's previous vegetarian cookery books, I had a fairly good idea what to expect fom this one, and I was not to be disappointed. Those familiar with Denis' style will know that his recipes are not the sort of "quick, 30-minute after work" style so popular these days; his recipes involve time, care and a great deal of attention to detail. Hence, the title "For The Love Of Food" is highly appropriate. If you're not really fussed about what you eat, then recipes of this complexity will not be for you. However, if like me, the thought of something unusual means you're looking forward to it all day then you'll get great satisfaction from this book.
Back in the summer, I made every single recipe from the salad chapter, and each and every one was very tasty. I did simplify some of the recipes a bit, not by omitting particular ingredients, but by, say, cooking several things together rather than having about four or five elements to each recipe. This still resulted in delicious outcomes, even if not so visually attractive. With a bit of forethought, all of the complexed recipes can be simplified in this way, so do not be put off by the sight of a recipe with numerous elements to it.
Overall, I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone who would describe themselves as a true "foodie", vegetarian or otherwise.
