Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Vegeterranean: Italian Vegetarian Cooking (Hardcover)
I'm a vegetarian but my husband isn't and it is really difficult to find recipes I can eat but which satisfy him. I bought this book as previous reviews said this will meet this requirement. I think it does and the more I cook from it the more my husband agrees!
The pictures are really inspiring and make you really excited about cooking them. Although some of the ingrediants are impossible to get hold of in my neck of the woods the recipes still seem to work with a few well thought out alternatives and substitutions.
I wasn't too keen on some of the pages dedicated to stories about their life. Quite frankly some of them are a bit too self-congratulatory and remind me of the "hilarious" stories people tell you about people who you have never met and have no inclination to. However, as a cookery book I like it and best of all I the receipes on the whole seem to actually work which is always a bonus for an enthusiatic but unskilled cook like me.
