Unfortunately, we have tried quite a number of recipes from this book and have found all of them essentially duds - not a single one has joined our favorite list. They seem esoteric and contrived to us, kind of thrown together rather than the excellent ones that were really used in the original restaurant. (The latter includes a great spinach lasagna, the former such oddly bland things as "hot marinated cauliflower".)
While it could be that these recipes are subtle variations for some hard-core vegetarians, my wife - who was a strict vegetarian for years, pre-me - finds nothing to recommend this book. In our view, the book really doesn't have anything genuinely new and good to add, but is a simple commercial knock-off.
Not recommended. We believe it is better to find vegetarian recipes that are found in ethnic cookbooks, in context, rather than slapped together make-shift books like this.
I highly recommend this cookbook. It is beautifully hand written and illustrated, making it that much more fun to use.
The book starts with a table of conversions, imperial to metric, which I use frequently.
The chapters included are: soups, salads, breads, sauces dips and spreads, entrées, desserts, as well as chapters on menu-planning, improvisation of recipes, and lists of low fat and vegan recipes included.
Personally, I like the fact that it covers more than just the step-by-step recipes you get in some books. For instance, the chapter on tofu takes you through what sort to buy, how to marinade it etc... before it looks at individual recipes.
