joy of vegetarian cooking,
By A Customer
This review is from: Vegetarian Cooking (Hardcover)
This has become my culinary encyclopedia. I find myself referencing the text daily when preparing a meal. The vegetable/fruit information is very thorough - providing herbs & spices that combine well. It's also a dictionary of procedures & techniques, giving valuable information on anything from cooking rice to making crepes. Many of the recipes are fairly simple to prepare but surprisingly delicious. Recipes start from the very rudimentary, which makes it a primer for people who don't know much about cooking or food; but the information remains timeless and valuable to cooks of all levels. As a vegetarian, it has displaced Joy of Cooking as the number one guide in the kitchen.
