shesalibrarygeek More than 1 year ago
All I can get out of my mouth right now is YUM, WOW and I'M OFF TO COOK at the top of my lungs, I am not a vegetarian, I love eating meat (sorry animals) but I d0 love this book and it has recipes that are tantalizing and calling me to the kitchen (which is unusual for me). To start with, I am happy to see a quick and thrifty section in the book which is just as long as the other chapters. It is valuable to have a thrifty section because for some vegetarians budgets are tight, and makes vegetarian cooking for some people much more accessible. The introduction to each chapter is informative and have some useful facts and shopping suggestions for cost effective and long term freshness of items particularly spices. The book is clean only using a small amount of colour. There are not pictures on every page but are scattered throughout the book. I do prefer more pictures of the actual cooked item as I am more of a visual person and it gives me an indication of whether I am on track with my cooking or not. Overall it is a lovely book that I am sure many vegetarians will love.
