Also recommended: "Recipes and Remembrances from an Eastern Mediterranean Kitchen", by Sonia Uvezian. If you are fond of Mediterranean food (as I am), you will find this book a revelation. It is filled with extraordinary vegetarian recipes, many of them not available elsewhere.
My only dissappointment in Madison was the dessert section which, apon reading, didn't make my mouth water. However, I must confess that I have yet to make even one of her desserts and the literature might not do the final product justice.
If for some strange and unimaginable reason I had to toss all of my cookbooks but one, it would be a toss up between Vegitarian Cooking For Everyone and the Escoffier cook book both of which I find indespensible.
I highly reccomend this book to herbavores and carnivores alike.
The vegetarian diet, although usually perceived as willing decision of particular person, is often motivated by health reasons, prevention or necessary need. And I some time ago found myself in a similar situation when I literally overnight had to change my life, especially food I eat which has previously been dominated by meat, especially fried. So I was forced to seek help on Internet and diet books on this topic which are widespread in the market, not always the best quality. But very quickly someone mentioned one particular good book - Deborah Madison’s ‘Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone’ that although released almost 20 years ago is still an endless source of great tips and recipes in which ever since I enjoy.
So when I heard that a new release is coming out that immediately attracted my attention - what I've seen so far, this is definitely a book that is worth the purchase if you have previously used the old edition, and especially if you've never had the pleasure to own this great book.
All the original material is still inside, while the book was expanded with the additional 200 recipes, but equally important, both for old and new recipes the way they are showed is changed what make recipes now presented in 2 columns more convenient to read.Read more ›
