Top Customer Reviews

Although I am not a vegetarian my partner of 5 years standing is and as we are both passionate about food we needed to find things that we could enjoy eating together. The sort of veggie concoctions one sees that are based on traditional meat dishes but replacing the meat with some alien substitute has never appealed and I've never been a nut roast man, so imagine my delight when a friend, who also happens to be carnivorous, recommended this book. It is an absolute mine of recipes that happen to be veggie and are real food! If I have one criticism of the book it is that the author writes a mouthwatering chapter on regions and their specialities but doesn't give recipes for many of the dishes she mentions. This is, however, minor gripe when faced with the vast array of gratins, tians, tarts, etc, etc. Italian Vegetarian Cookery by the same author is also worth buying.

I adore the author's book Italian Vegetarian Cookery. Effectively these are similar ingredients and treatments but from a very French perspective (lots of cream and eggs).

This is a simple cookery book- no lush pictures- but her recipes are well written and you don't need them. I found fewer astounding recipes when compared to the Italian book, but still there's

Cabbage Gratin- my notes say- amazing affinity of cabbage and gruyere (cabbage in a flavoured up bechamel sauce).
Courgette and rice soup- a good simple combination.
I seem to have really liked the quiches which are proper French versions, not the sad wimpy flavourless English flan- this is eggs and cream cooking!
My notes seem to have gone overboard on a dish from the Carmargue- Rice with Courgettes- surprising for something so simple.

Frankly you couldn't cook like this everyday, but this is definitely for a good solid treat.
