Customer Review

on 23 December 2006
The recipes here are unusual, inventive and I'm sure delicious once in a while - however, though I adore food and I also love cooking, and have been a vegetarian for over 25 years, I wouldn't really feel inspired to work through these recipes.

This book reminded me of nothing so much as one of Gordon Ramsey's 'Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmare' programmes - notably the one where he visited a restaurant run by a clearly talented French chef who however never knowingly used 1 ingredient when he could use 6. The idea of simplicity in flavours never occurred, instead there was overkill in every dish.

I'm not a huge fan of 'worthy vegetarian cooking' but believe there is a middle ground between that and the twirl every leaf. garnish every last crouton approach which this book skydives into.

As far as 'gourmet' vegetarian food goes, which this book clearly offers, I'll stick to my Colin Spencer, thankyou very much.
