The recipes seem to be centered on the heavy use of cheese, eggs, and veggie burgers or textured vegetable protein. I am not a vegan, so this isn't a problem, but I would have liked to see more lighter options with less fat or cheese. A great deal of her recipes are repeats from some of the other books I have, so this one reads more like an updated cookery book rather than a different themed cookery book from her. Also, there are a few recipes that seem to stop in mid-recipe. The victoria sponge gives the recipe for the cake itself, but no comments or details on the filling. Not even to go to the shops to buy jam or cream to fill it. But right above the recipe is a finished cake picture showing it with cream and jam in the centre. Likewise, there is a picture of someone rolling out what look like gnocchi right under a recipe for dumplings. The dumpling recipe does not require rolling and I could see where this might confuse a novice cook.
On the positive side, all the recipes are appealing, if you don't mind either cheese or egg based dishes, and the photographs are nice. This cookery book would be best suited to a new vegetarian or non-vegetarian as a good place to start. The recipes are classic in theme, but not the healthier versions of old favorites that many experienced vegetarians would want to make for themselves. They would be best as once in awhile meals.
There are though quite a number of new recipes, and this book does feel heavier and bigger. The recipes do still look and sound good, and as before, I will enjoy making them.

If Linda inspired you, consider purchasing a copy of Mary McCartney's book "Food". The book is really a tribute to a wonderful mum.
