Product description

Amazon Review

Paul Gayler is a sometime protegé of Anton Mosimann and is now head chef at the Lanesborough Hotel in London. He has worked in Indian and Chinese restaurants and is also something of a celebrity chef, with a couple of previous books as well as television appearances under his belt. The recipes in his Vegetarian Cookbook, which include eggs and dairy products, are as cosmopolitan as you would expect from such a pedigree and are intended to "change the way you think about vegetarian cookery". Typical of his approach are starters such as Goat's Cheese Latkes With Beetroot Salsa, a clever reworking of Eastern European flavours and Oriental Mushroom Sushi Purses. Soups include the irresistible-sounding Lazy Caribbean Soup, a sweet, spiced purée of tropical fruits served with a savoury, guacamole-like salsa and the heartier Smoky Corn Veloute. A chapter on Tarts and Pies ranges from the delicate Salsify and Wild Mushroom Tart to the more robust Goan Potato, Pea and Mint Pasties. A pumpkin risotto is transformed with Thai flavours. North American Succotash is embedded in a polenta pudding. Wild Mushroom Stroganoff With Spatzele combines the mushrooms in their cream sauce with Alsatian spinach noodles. For dessert, Paul Gayler poaches his peaches with saffron, cinnamon and star anise; his Pink Grapefruit Sorbet is flavoured with rosewater; and his chocolate tart gets an unexpected charge from a dash of chilli oil. An imaginative, beautifully presented collection of recipes. --Robin Davidson


A collection of over 100 sophisticated vegetarian recipes using ingredients from around the world which include smoky grilled peppers, piquant olives and black beans, warm and golden polenta and aromatic saffron-hued rice. Step-by-step techniques are given.
