Lord Krishna's Cuisine, from which this anthology is culled, is a weighty, enormously detailed tome on every aspect of Vaishnave cooking. This anthology excludes many of the recipes that would be particularly difficult to reproduce or are very specialised, but it's still a challenging book.
No eggs, onions or garlic, or mushrooms are used (Vaishnavs think of onions and garlic as meat accompaniments). Despite this limitation, the recipes are delicious, though you may find them surprisingly light compared to the usual Indian fare.
Devi does go on about her guru a bit, but I can't say that bothered me more than Jaffrey's oohing and ah-ing (cookery writers should not be allowed to use the expression 'I love x or y" all the time, sorry). But I can see how this can be irritating to many.
In our current glut of food tourism (a bit of Thai, a bit of Moroccan, a bit of Mexican) I find it fascinating to be presented with a thorough exploration of a very specific cuisine. It makes one realise what we're missing by skimming the surface.
