This is my vegetarian bible.
I have had a copy since it was published in 1992, then loaned my copy out and had to buy a replacement. Will soon have to get another as this is suffering from overuse!
There are soups, starters, salads and savouries, plus a large section on desserts, cakes and biscuits.
Imagine your favourite vegetarian restaurant in your own house!
Don't miss Cranks nut roast and the mushroom pate, though there are many others I could recommend.
I have several Cranks recipe books, but this is the opne I use most often.
I did not want or expected glossy pictures so ok on that score, a lot of the pages are given (50 out of 250) to 'story so far', 'bibliography' and 'culinary know how' in the last section it describes how to 'dice veg' and other similar basics the only thing it does not give any info on is how to 'wash the pots'; quite insulting really.
It is ok but there are far better books out there, so far no quite matches Gail Duffs 'vegetarian cook book' from the late 70's she has a real understanding of what she is doing and should inspire you to develop your own menu; this book is disappointing.
Okay, so some of the recipes are a bit unusual (never quite got the hang of millet or bread without yeast...) but others are brilliant (Homity Pies, and Leek and Cheese Flan, for example) especially the soups, puddings and biscuits. Also, most of the recipes are VERY cheap to make, plus easily adaptable. And I always used their pastry recipe.
If you have one staple cook book in your kitchen, make sure it's this one!
